Welcome

Thank you for your interest in becoming part of Norwich City Council.

Norwich is a success story. A city which seamlessly combines the historic with the modern – a vibrant urban centre with a thriving economy and cultural scene.

Norwich is one of the UK’s great historical cities – a regional economic and cultural powerhouse. It’s a vibrant, proud and creative city – a success story for almost 1,000 years. Despite the challenges which have come our way in 2020, that success will continue.

Over the next 20 years, there will be increasing pressure on our city environment and infrastructure, with significant changes to how people work, learn, live and travel – changes which are likely to be exacerbated by the impact of Covid.

As the city council we want to lead that change, not follow it. Against a backdrop of huge national and international issues such as the long term implications of the pandemic, Brexit, climate change, and the need to address inequality, we must make sure Norwich is a shining example of medium sized cities across the globe.

This is not something the council or any one organisation can do alone. The whole city – its people, businesses and institutions – will need to work together to make the 2040 city vision a reality. The building blocks are in place – we need new leaders to drive it forward.

Norwich City Council is a progressive, forward looking authority. A council which is proud of its history and ambitious for its future.

Like all local authorities, we’re not without our challenges but, set against a backdrop of reducing funding, we’ve been coming up with new ways to deliver sustainable services going forward. We now stand at the forefront of an exciting forward agenda and our willingness to do things differently needs to continue to develop at scale and at pace.

There is much for the city council to achieve for Norwich as a place – for its people and businesses. We are looking for innovative, forward thinking leaders to help achieve our vision for the council and the city. If that’s you, please get in touch.

Wishing you the very best of luck with your application.

Leader, Norwich City Council
