North Tyneside is a great place to live, work and visit.  With a range of housing, great schools, strong transport links and a fabulous environment that connects country, river and award-winning coast.

North Tyneside Council has often punched above its weight.  With an Elected Mayor and Cabinet with clear ambitions for the Borough we have worked together to deliver high performing local services and in a range of partnerships to make a success of our communities and economy.

But there is much still to do.  With an agreed Local Plan there is a fifteen year vision for how the Borough might look; that needs to be brought to life.  Our children need to be ready for school, young people and adults ready for work and life and our population helped to be healthy, to be safeguarded and to be cared for.  And, like every other local authority we need to balance the books.

The Elected Mayor has committed to making sure we are a council that works better for residents.  We have fantastic people delivering great services but we want to make it clear that we listen and we care.

Following the retirement of two experienced colleagues we are looking for senior leaders to join our team.  We want a new Head of Law and Governance who can handle the day to day running of a local authority but who can also contribute to delivering our strategic plans and operate in a dynamic political and commercial environment.

We also want a Head of Regeneration and Economic Development who can grasp a vision and establish the right teams, partnerships and funding to make that vision real.  Who can speak credibly to business and develop the right partnership to build on our successful economy.

Both roles will involve the opportunity to play a full part in the development and delivery of the North of Tyne Combined Authority working alongside colleagues in Newcastle and Northumberland to improve the life chances of almost 1m people.

I look forward to meeting you in due course.

Paul Hanson
Acting Chief Executive
