Our vision for Hertfordshire is that it is a county where our residents have the opportunity to live healthy, fulfilling lives in thriving prosperous communities. Hertfordshire is recognised for the quality of life it offers, a strong economy, excellent transport links and outstanding natural environment – all supported by highly effective public services.

The forthcoming retirement of our Chief Executive means we are now looking for another high performing individual to lead our organisation. As Chief Executive, you will know your own mind in order to take responsibility for the overall leadership and direction of the County Council’s services. You will be expected to have a clear vision together with the ambition and ability to deliver. Key to successful delivery will be your ability to influence and work with a range of partners and stakeholders including our District and Borough colleagues, Local Enterprise Partnership, Constabulary and NHS as well as our MPs and central government, to ensure the County Council delivers effectively and innovatively on behalf of our residents.

There remains significant scope for change and innovation across the County Council itself. Our strong financial position provides excellent foundations on which to innovate, as does our highly experienced senior management team and committed workforce.

We are seeking an exceptional individual as our next Chief Executive to lead an organisation that will be nationally viewed as an exemplar of local government performance, innovation and efficiency. We expect to attract applicants who can point to a track record of leadership at a senior level in local government.

If you think you have the ambition, qualities and experience to take on a significant role in a large County Council, we would love to hear from you.
