Head of Place

North Devon is a great place.

We have a largely rural area full of quaint traditional villages, part of the Exmoor National Park and a fabulous coastline, with a mix of stunning beaches and rugged cliffs.

That’s great, but we know we can’t stand still.  We have to grow so that we continue to contribute to the economy of the south west and we can offer real opportunities to the people who live here, now and in the future.

We are looking for someone to spearhead our growth agenda, someone to help us grow without messing up the fabulous benefits we already have.

We don’t expect you to do it on your own, so you’ll take the strategic lead for our Planning and Economic Development services.  If you’re enthusiastic, confident and positive and can demonstrate experience in at least part of this portfolio, we want to hear from you.

In return we offer a supportive environment in an organisation accredited with IIP, flexible working hours and a career average salary pension scheme.

North Devon Council believes in valuing diversity and is committed to equal opportunities.
