Cornwall Council has embarked on an exciting journey that is fundamentally changing the way public services are delivered and governed. Our historic Devolution Deal has seen the role and purpose of the Council change dramatically as it gradually gains more strategic powers from the Government to tackle current and future challenges, at the same time as devolving a range of functions to many of Cornwall’s local councils and community groups. We’ve made great progress but our devolution ambitions are far from realised and Brexit has created new opportunities that we intend to grasp.
All this requires an incremental reshaping of local democracy…and that’s where you come in! Our recent Governance Review has provided a blueprint for a new and pioneering ‘whole system’ governance model for Cornwall that you will evolve and deliver.
In addition you’ll work with Members and the Corporate Leadership Team to fulfil the ambitious aims set out in the Council Strategy and lead an efficient and effective Assurance Service.
