East Herts is a small council with big ambition. Their leader was recently given a special mention in the LGiU’s ‘Leader of the Year’ awards - and she sets the bar high. They have an ambitious programme of delivery, both day-to-day services and large scale capital and transformation projects. Major town centre regeneration, new leisure centres/theatres, revitalised parks, digital working, green travel…. to name but a few. Communities are at the heart of what they do, and their councillors are at the forefront of ensuring they deliver for residents and businesses in the district.
In the last few years they have developed as an organisation, creating a council where all colleagues are valued and respected. Their leadership team is well established, highly motivated, and innovative. They’re not afraid to take risks and try new things. If they don’t work, they put that down to experience. They’re now looking for someone to help them take their development further.
You’ll be determined. You’ll be dedicated. You’ll have the ability to drive change and improvements, and shape a high-performing culture. More than anything, you’ll be passionate about making your mark on an organisation that punches well above its weight. You’ll inspire service leads across the council to ensure they have the capacity and capability in place to deliver their ambitious programme. And you’ll be key in developing a learning culture, and a work environment where all colleagues thrive.
