Thank you for taking the time to visit this site. These roles are incredibly important appointments that will help to shape the future strategy and delivery of services in our two Districts. We very much hope this site provides the information and insight you need to take your application forward.

We believe that there is a narrative around how we work and how we integrate our service delivery that makes Babergh and Mid Suffolk a genuinely interesting and exciting career step. We’re very proud of what we have achieved here. We are at the forefront of joint working and progressive partnership – two sovereign councils, each with a strong sense of identity but with a shared vision of the future. 

Our journey over the last five years has seen us integrate our workforces and become the first districts nationally to move to a joint headquarters, creating a public sector hub with Suffolk County Council and two clinical commissioning groups. For this pioneering work, Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils won silver awards in the Council of the Year and the Working Together categories of the 2018 Public Sector Transformation Awards.

Alongside our sense of innovation, we retain a strong sense of community and a firm focus on delivering services that are sustainable, cost-effective and customer-focused. This is a very special place to live – consistently featuring in reviews of the best places to live in the UK – and we are dedicated to maintaining that quality of life.

We’re moving forward: two councils with one clear vision and some very exciting opportunities for the future. We hope you’ll join us. 

Yours sincerely,

Cllr John Ward
Leader of Babergh District Council

Cllr Nick Gowrley
Leader of Mid-Suffolk District Council
