If these are the sort of words that excite you, and you’re ready to inspire our teams with fresh and innovative plans, then we want to hear from you. Because here at North Northamptonshire Council, we’re transforming for the better, and using all our creativity and imagination to improve the lives of everyone we work with. 

In this exciting newly-created role you’ll report direct to our new Chief Executive, and will look after our enabling services: HR and Organisational Development, Customer Services, Strategy and Policy, Transformation and Change, Performance, Communications, Public Affairs and Engagement, and Digital, ICT and Business Support. 

Working closely with our Chief Executive and the Corporate Leadership Team, you’ll be tasked with driving innovation and transformation, and ensuring that we truly are One Council – committed to working together to improve outcomes for residents. 

This will entail acting as an ambassador for the council, identifying and securing investment opportunities, leading partner and stakeholder engagement, ensuring that the council is both community- and data-led, campaigning to develop the North Northamptonshire brand, and establishing the council as an employer of choice. 

So, as a collaborative and inspirational leader, you’ll bring experience of strategy and transformation, with the ability to lead, develop and sustain effective team, partnership and multi-agency working through strong and effective advocacy, influencing and negotiating skills. Moreover, a track record of successful delivery will be required for success. 

You will also support the wider BIG50 future vision. This is a strategic area-based blueprint, rather than an organisational one, which is focused on improving the lives of our residents. This BIG50 Vision has three priorities: we want our area to be a proud place where people feel inspired and safe, to be a prosperous place where business can thrive and a skilled people can achieve their ambitions, and to be a proactive place where issues are faced and everyone can live their best life. 

We’ve laid the foundations, and now we’re looking for someone like you to bring their own ideas to the table. This is a brilliant opportunity for a visionary, forward thinking change professional who wants to make a real difference.
