Welcome, and thank you for your interest in learning more about North Yorkshire Council and this exciting role.

This is an unrivalled career opportunity for an ambitious and experienced leader at a pivotal point in our history. In April 2023 the eight councils that served North Yorkshire unified to create geographically the largest council and third largest unitary within the country, and earlier this year the brand new York and North Yorkshire Combined Authority was created. With the new Mayor already in place, this role affords a unique platform to work closely with the Combined Authority to support the Devolution Deal for York and North Yorkshire and to help take full advantage of what devolution will bring to the region.

North Yorkshire is unique - internationally valued for its quality of place, but with a scale and industry that make it integral to the North of England. The county’s landscapes, culture and local businesses already make the region a fantastic place to live, work and do business, and with the new investment and powers unlocked by the Devolution Deal there are even more opportunities for North Yorkshire to achieve more for its residents and business alike.

The investment priorities for North Yorkshire will build on its existing strengths, and significant funding has already been secured for the delivery of several major regeneration schemes including from the Transforming Cities Fund, Towns Fund, Levelling Up and UK Shared Prosperity Fund- making it the perfect time to join the team. I am looking for a strategic leader with energy, vision and enthusiasm to ensure we capitalise on these opportunities, who has the ability to develop priorities and spearhead the charge for North Yorkshire.

The breadth and range of work will provide you with the opportunity to influence and lead at a large scale and also to network with many colleagues across the region. With strong proven management skills, you will inspire your team and drive success.

If you have the experience, passion and ambition to join us and help lead at this pivotal time in our history, then we would like to hear from you. In return you will be welcomed by dedicated and supportive colleagues who appreciate everything North Yorkshire has to offer and who want to do their very best for the region. We are a modern employer, and we operate in a hybrid way which means you will use technology to work from a variety of locations including local area offices, head office and from home, working where it is most effective.

If you are interested in joining our team and are inspired to help lead the next phase of our journey, please review the information on the campaign site and speak with our recruitment partners at The Resourcing Solution.
