Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit this website to find out more about this exciting leadership opportunity at East Lothian Council.

East Lothian is a high-performing council which has an excellent record of delivering high-quality services and continues to improve.

While it is a challenging climate for local government, it is also an exciting time to be joining East Lothian Council. In a period of significant change, development and local population growth, we are ambitious for the future of our special county and the residents we serve.

Delivering the more prosperous, safe and sustainable East Lothian we all want to see includes helping our children achieve their potential, supporting older and vulnerable people, enhancing the local environment and building an increasingly sustainable economy.

With a clear vision, set of objectives and relentless focus on reducing inequalities, we are seeking a new Chief Executive to provide the leadership which enables us to continue the journey and build on the very positive progress made over recent years.

Our Chief Executive must have a strong track record – an individual who can embrace change, drive transformation and who, above all, shares our commitment to continuous improvement and public service.

The successful candidate will personify and embed our Council Values - Enabling, Leading and Caring.

The new Chief Executive will be supported by a skilled and committed workforce which has developed strong relationships with our communities and partners. Do you have the qualities we are looking for?

This website has details about East Lothian Council, the Chief Executive role and links to further information. We look forward to receiving your application.
