We have big plans for Norfolk that we want you to deliver

Here at Norfolk County Council, we are ambitious.  We want a better future for everyone who works and lives in Norfolk.  We want to deliver our plans working alongside a host of organisations, businesses and community groups.

And we want you to deliver this ambition for us.

You will lead our collective work with a strategic approach that matches our shared ambition to ensure our communities grow, thrive and prosper for the future.

Norfolk is a fantastic place to live and work, but there is an urgent need for place leadership to define what we collectively have to offer, how we deliver that transformation and ensure we do not fall behind the rest of the country.

We are very proud of our unique environment, identity, heritage and assets. Yet during these unprecedented times, we know that the difficult challenges we faced before are now even more challenging.

Norfolk as a county has responded magnificently to those challenges with the County Council at the heart of that response. Our approach of working together is key to our strategy of delivering what is best for Norfolk.  We know more than ever that we need to collaborate across sectors and get to grips with all the issues affecting the people that live and work in our County.

Working better together means putting Norfolk first.  Improving our inclusive growth and social mobility, driving forward plans that invest in benefitting people’s lives and delivering results that create impetus for our future economic and social wellbeing.

If you want to be a part of making Norfolk a place that stands out with a growing economy, thriving people living in strong communities then we would love to share our journey and future plans with you.

In return, you will bring a strong track record at a senior level of managing a strategic corporate function in a large and complex organisation.  Irrespective of sector, you will be able to evidence significant experience of delivering a strategic roadmap, service improvement, transformational change and collaborative leadership that delivers whole system outcomes beneficial for Norfolk.
