Here at Lincolnshire County Council we have a lot to be proud of. This authority is already seen nationally as high-performing and innovative. Our political and financial foundations are strong and with a new Corporate Leadership Team, we will work to a ‘one council’ mindset, encouraging service areas to aim for and achieve shared outcomes.
As a county, we contribute over £13.5 billion to the national economy with key sectors including agri-food, tourism and manufacturing. We are also proud of our history and heritage. But we have ambition. We want everyone – residents, families, communities and businesses – to have the opportunities they need to fulfill their potential.
As Chief Executive, you’ll acknowledge and strengthen our achievements, creating and driving a compelling vision for the future. By understanding the diverse nature of our organisation and county, you’ll bring talented people together, utilise resources wisely and ensure we deliver on our objectives. More than just a figurehead - you will be dedicated and inspirational.
We are looking for someone with current experience of a large and complex organisation. You will be politically astute, an exceptional communicator, who forms long-lasting relationships and can influence both locally and nationally. Our paid service works closely with our politicians and this level of collaboration is essential to our success.
In return, this is the chance to build on your own achievements and take them to the next level given our size and complexity. Our benefits are good and our working culture is extremely supportive and friendly. We will also offer relocation assistance if needed.
If you want to join us on this journey, please call Claire Threapleton on 07715 374667 for an informal and confidential chat, or email your CV and covering letter to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The closing date for applications is Thursday 14th November 2019.
Interviews will be held in Lincoln on 3rd and 4thDecember 2019.
