Are you an exemplary strategic leader who’s got what it takes to help us improve the sustainability, connectivity and wellbeing of our county? Can you help create a thriving local economy whilst protecting and enhancing our unique environment?

Our ambition is for Herefordshire to be an exemplar of 21st century rural living where market towns and rural communities are properly valued and recognised for the contributions they make to the success of the county. As a council, we’re relatively small but, we think, perfectly formed. We consider ourselves as a team of 1,339 staff and we’re proud to say that people who come here consistently comment on the warm welcome they receive. We’re recognised as ‘punching above our weight’ and part of the beauty of our size is the ability to get things to done, often in creative and innovative ways.

We’re now seeking an aspirational and forward-thinking Chief Executive, who will progress our current work programme which includes developing the green economy and implementing active travel measures, whilst also looking beyond what is currently planned, identifying new opportunities and building a bigger picture.

Herefordshire is a great place to live with a beautiful and unique natural environment. As our Chief Executive, you will work in partnership to enhance this wonderful asset for future generations while ensuring that we balance this sensitively with playing an active part in the modern world.

To find out more, speak in confidence to Nick Cole at Veredus on 07736 491804.

Closing date: 10th December 2020.
