We are a county of natural beauty, bordered by 50 miles of stunning coastline. 800,000 people are proud to call Suffolk home and many more visit every year. We are a county of huge economic potential, world class institutes and leading-edge industry and technology.

How you will make a difference

Reporting to the Chief Executive, this is your opportunity to provide the leadership that strengthens our economy for all, while protecting and enhancing our unique environment.

The directorate takes the lead on many corporate priorities, including our net zero commitment and the delivery of our major infrastructure projects, which are reshaping our access to energy and revitalising our transport network. Environment and waste, climate emergency, flood and water management, our natural and historic environment, housing, planning, economic development, highways and transport come together in portfolio of breadth, strategic importance and impact. Succeed and Suffolk will be the best place to live, visit and do business.

About you
