At Devon County Council, we’re committed to collaborating with other organisations so that Devon is one of the UK’s leading counties for citizens to grow up, live well, and prosper. With our strategic plan for 2021 – 2025, we’re creating a fairer, healthier and more caring Devon; one that’s greener, more prosperous, and offers an inclusive future for all.

Working as part of the Policy Integration Team that reports directly to the Council’s Chief Executive you will have an important role in shaping the Council’s corporate approaches to policy and strategy development.

The initial focus of your work will be to support the Programme Lead for the Devon, Plymouth and Torbay devolution deal.

You will need the ability to work collaboratively with and obtain the trust of a wide range of individuals and organisations. In return you will have the opportunity to live and work a county that boasts a vibrant city, thriving towns and some of the most scenic coasts and countryside in the UK.
