Executive Director, Place

At Derbyshire County Council, we’re truly ambitious about building on our success to date and becoming a much more modern and effective Council. We are focused on delivering best in class services that help make opportunities for our residents and community, as well as a great place to live and work. We’re also committed to improve and reform both our services and our culture to meet our communities’ changing needs.

As the Executive Director for Place, you’ll be a key member of the executive leadership team and corporate management team, have excellent strategic leadership skills and be able to lead, influence and motivate employees successfully through change, while maintaining a strong performance culture.

You will have strong partnership skills that will enhance the Place role in helping to shape the development of the Derbyshire economy, especially in the delivery of economic recovery planning and proposals post-covid.

You’ll play a key role in our move to being recognised as an enterprising Council, shaping the organisation to expand our range of delivery models, tackling any inefficiencies and being more commercial and proactive with our residents and communities.

All of this needs to be within the opportunities and challenges posed by climate change and you will be at the heart of developing and delivering the strategy and plans to meet our decarbonisation and sustainability goals.

You’ll have a proven ability to ensure we deliver our key priorities aligned to our Council Plan.

Derbyshire is a wonderful place to live, visit and work. The post will be based at County Hall at Matlock in the heart of the Derbyshire Dales.
