Job Details

This is a very exciting time for York and North Yorkshire - we are at a pivotal point in our history.

On 22 January 2024 the York and North Yorkshire Combined Authority was formed by Parliament; responsible for overseeing devolved decision-making powers and harnessing millions of pounds of funding for both York and North Yorkshire. Devolution plans bring significant benefits to our 815,000 residents and 32,000 businesses across York and North Yorkshire, including new jobs, more affordable housing and measures to tackle climate change.

The new Mayor of the Combined Authority will be elected on 2 May 2024 and will be looking to forge ahead with a brand new talented leadership team at the start of what is going to be an incredibly exciting time for the region. This is where you come in – as a founding member of the Combined Authority Management Board, you will work closely with the Mayor and many other influential leaders both locally and nationally, to help bring about significant change and make sure the region fully capitalises on all that devolution can offer.

The challenges are significant, but the rewards are too – here is a role which will be instrumental in shaping the future of the Combined Authority; an opportunity to leave a lasting legacy. In return you will be welcomed by dedicated and supportive colleagues who appreciate everything York and North Yorkshire has to offer and who want to do their very best for the region. Make your future, our future.

As Chief Executive you will already be a successful and influential leader; – you will make the partnership that is the basis of the combined authority work and maximise the opportunities this affords us. Working with City of York Council, North Yorkshire Council, and the newly elected Mayor you will help shape and be responsible for the delivery of the authorities priorities, the corporate and business objectives.

This really is a fantastic opportunity to play a vital role in this next phase in the North Yorkshire success story at a critical moment in its’ history. Opportunities to spearhead a brand new organisation, make your mark and leave a legacy will not come much better than this.
