Northampton Town Council is the largest town council in England and Wales serving an estimated population of 130,000 with a very diverse demographic. It has been created in the context of the introduction of unitary councils in Northamptonshire on 1 April 2021. The town council will be managing some assets and services currently delivered by Northampton Borough Council and will be based at the prestigious and historic Guildhall. The town council will also ensure the continuity of the town’s Mayoralty and rich civic tradition, which has served the townsfolk for over 900 years.

This is an exciting and challenging opportunity to help shape the style and direction of the new town council, which will require outstanding leadership and communication skills. If you have demonstrable expertise in managing a large town council or similar public sector body and feel you would be successful in this exacting position, we would love to hear from you.
