Further Information

As one of the biggest councils in the country, with stable leadership and a proud service tradition, Durham County Council is facing the future with confidence. In our first 10 years as a unitary council we have achieved a great deal. In part due to our great people and strong leadership, but also due to creative thinking, partnership working and a sheer passion for what we do.

To help us achieve our ambitions as a council, we have created a new role to focus on key objectives. Our Corporate Director of Regeneration, Economy and Growth will be largely externally-facing, helping to deliver economic development, regeneration, and culture, sport and tourism across the county.

We have huge growth potential in Durham, with £3.4 billion of investment in town and city centres, significant expansion by Durham University, major business parks, the north east’s only science and technology park together with 24,000 new houses by 2033. We are therefore seeking candidates who are adept at building relationships, able to work successfully with regional and national partners across government and the private sector, and with the skills and determination to deliver tangible outcomes benefitting all our communities.

This role will also be part of our Corporate Management Team, steering the overall direction of the council. It is an exciting time to join Durham – so if you feel you have the drive, skills and experience to make a difference in one of the most dynamic, beautiful and ambitious counties in the country, we want to hear from you.
