“We are now looking for an ambitious, forward thinking individual to join our senior leadership team and lead the organisation into a successful future.

“Denbighshire is a wonderful county to work in. From the coastal resorts of Rhyl and Prestatyn through the historic towns of Rhuddlan, St Asaph, Denbigh and Ruthin, the scenic rolling hills of the Clwydian Range to the picturesque Dee Valley and the towns of Llangollen and Corwen, Denbighshire has something to offer everyone.

“This is a time of new beginnings and we are looking for a candidate who fully understands the incredible opportunity this presents, the chance to influence and shape the future of the Council, and to lead the delivery of priorities that will have a significant impact on our residents and local businesses.”
