Placing our residents, communities, and businesses at the heart of everything we do.

A county of contrasts, West Sussex covers both coast and the South Downs National Park, encompassing harbours, farmland and market towns whilst being home to significant businesses and the UK’s second largest international airport.

The county council is on an improvement journey and over the past two years we have made significant strides in core service areas as well as strengthening our corporate infrastructure and business planning.

Reporting to the Chief Executive and part of the Executive Leadership Team, you will lead teams that develop and deliver support services and corporate management of shared resources to enable the County Council to operate effectively and efficiently. As our S151 Officer, you will oversee the provision of financial, administrative and audit services to the Council, adding value to the decision-making process through the provision of timely information and expert advice.

This is an opportunity to join a talented leadership team that is shaping how local government in West Sussex supports a large resident and business population. Through deployment of state-of-the-art digital infrastructure and the continued modernisation of corporate services, you will have the opportunity to create a lasting legacy, ensuring we continue to put our residents, customers and partners at the heart of everything we do.
