Hambleton was ranked fourth in the 2017 Halifax Rural Areas Quality of Life Survey yet is within easy reach of major cities – the A1(M) runs through the district and London and Edinburgh are just 2½ hours away on the East Coast Main Line. Leeds and Newcastle are just 45 minutes away.

The district is the seventh largest in England, covering 500 square miles between York and Teesside, framed by the North York Moors to the east and, further to the west, the Yorkshire Dales.  The district is largely rural, with five historic market towns and over 140 parishes, but with ambitious growth plans.  As well as a strong agricultural base, the local economy features food production, innovative high technology businesses and tourism.

The Council has a strong track record in developing innovative plans and strategies to guide development for the benefit of its communities, particularly in delivering housing that meets local needs.  We are seeking a new manager to carry that work forward and to be a vital link between our housing and planning teams based in Northallerton, the county town.

You will be qualified in planning or housing, preferably both, and will have a good track record of managing people, working with other organisations and delivering housing and/or planning projects on time and in budget.
