Reference: A000543

When it comes down to basics, the real hallmark of a high-performing service is whether something gets done, when it should.

Under the leadership of our incoming Chief Executive, Terence Herbert, we believe that Surrey County Council is exceptionally well placed to achieve just that. We see this as an exciting opportunity to be a sector-leading council, relentlessly pushing for improvement and always going the extra mile to enhance our residents’ lives.

Adult social care is an increasingly complex and multi-faceted service, so we’re looking for an Executive Director who can bring the full repertoire of knowledge, experience and insight to this crucial role in our leadership team. You’ll exemplify a profound care for service users, which is at the heart of everything we do.

A values-driven, ambitious leader, you’ll bring an excellent understanding of how to deliver vital, people-focused services in a place like Surrey. Inspiring, resilient and with an outstanding track record, you’ll be ready to guide us through the journey ahead, to be the very best we can be.
