Candidate information






Thank you for your interest in this important and deeply rewarding role.

Surrey County Council is clear where its focus and ambitions must lie – our promise that no-one in Surrey will be left behind.

And that’s where you come in.

From this simple promise springs the determination to use innovation and transformative thinking to continually improve our practice, so that we can tackle inequalities and better the lives of the most vulnerable people in our communities. Placing residents and service users at the heart of everything we do.

This role operates at significant scale, with a headcount in four figures and a budget that's just under half of our total expenditure. We are looking forward to meeting candidates with a track record of success in a comparable job, and who are excited at this rare opportunity to join a highly innovative, outcome-focused and tenacious leadership group.
