I'm delighted that you are interested in joining us as Deputy Monitoring Officer. Durham is a really exciting place and as a council, we are passionate about doing our best for the county and local people.

Like all large public organisations, we face many challenges and the role you are interested in will be central to helping us with this.

You will be a key member of the Legal Services Management Team, reporting directly to our Head of Legal & Democratic Services, working with senior officers and members to provide high level professional advice and support as a Strategic Manager in Legal Services and in the capacity of Deputy Monitoring Officer for the Council.

Durham is recognised as being one of the best local authorities in the country and a few years ago were crowned council of the year.

We achieved that through strong political and senior management leadership, ambition, creative thinking, partnership working and sheer passion for what we do.

This is a critical role for the Council, and I hope you find the opportunity we have available interesting and if you’re excited by the prospect of working with us, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Yours sincerely

Terry Collins
Chief Executive
