Contract Type
Full time

This is an exciting time to join the Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) in Northamptonshire. You will lead the delivery of a modern, responsive, partnership-focussed Service. Reporting directly to the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, you will be central in ensuring that the Service fully discharges its statutory duties in line with the National Fire and Rescue Framework, supporting the outcomes of Northamptonshire’s Delivery Plan.

You will be given the autonomy needed to build on our successes and help transform the NFRS to ‘outstanding’ under the HMICFRS inspection process. Your experience in running a comparably scaled operational business will help you ensure that you provide the best possible outcomes for all those who live, work or visit the County. 

Fire Service experience would be helpful, but it is not essential. What is key is your ability to inclusively lead change, as you remain focussed on outcomes. A track record of driving  innovation, transformation and modernisation in a large, operational business will also be key.
