Durham: lights, action, magic

Welcoming the one millionth visitor to Lumiere, the country’s largest light festival. England, West indies, Sri Lanka and Rihanna – just some of the visitors to the Cricket World Cup in Durham this summer. Add to that Steve Cram and Paula Radcliffe encouraging thousands to run. A world heritage site and award-winning museums. Did we mention refurbished leisure centres and libraries co-located with customer service points?

Durham is a beautiful and diverse county, home to Durham Cathedral, Auckland Castle, Bowes and Beamish museums, Locomotion and the Emirates Riverside international cricket ground.
Our natural and cultural assets create opportunity, but Durham also faces many challenges and we are working with partners to tackle these issues, realise opportunities for local people, and improve quality of life. Culture, sport and tourism are key, and we are attracting more and more visitors and raising our profile as a leading centre for culture, with experiences that match the best in the country.

We’re looking for someone who has vision, energy, creativity, resilience and an absolute focus on delivering the best possible outcomes for residents and communities. If that’s you, we want to hear from you.
