Can you help us to realise our ambition and potential?

These are truly exciting times at Mid Sussex.

The Council is in a sound financial position. The work here is ambitious and complex, including the Council’s commercialisation agenda and many high-value regeneration projects and programmes. We are looking for a resourceful leader with wide-ranging legal experience in local government and ability to achieve and retain the confidence of Members and ensure the Council is well advised on legal and governance matters.

We are a friendly and welcoming team, who enjoy working and learning together. As a team, we will ensure that we create a place where visitors, workers, residents, and families can thrive.

Reporting to the Chief Executive, you will have responsibility for Legal Services and Democratic Services in ensuring that the legal function is an enabler for the local authority. The role will ensure we take strategic view to partnering, including across our projects and assets. If you bring strong legal acumen as well as passion for good governance, then we want to hear from you.

We operate an agile working policy which means most staff enjoy a blend of home and office-based working.
