Ribble Valley has a lot going for it. Most of its 226 square miles are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and its two market towns are steeped in history and heritage.

The borough boasts some of the best schools in the UK and an exceptional environment in which to live, work and play.

Ribble Valley Borough Council has been praised for delivering efficient and effective services, while maintaining high levels of customer satisfaction, but wants to go further and has drawn up a series of ambitious plans aimed at boosting health, housing and the economy, creating employment and increasing sustainability.

The authority has established its first Economic Development Committee and is looking to recruit a Director of Economic Development and Planning to take these exciting plans forward.

Working as part of our Corporate Management Team, the successful candidate should have an entrepreneurial approach and a proven track record in delivering on key projects, together with a high level of energy and drive to improve performance.

This is a great opportunity to take Ribble Valley’s amazing spaces, people and places to greater success.
