Adrian Smith, Corporate Director, Place

undefinedAdrian joined Nottinghamshire County Council in 2016 as Corporate Director of Place after five years working for the London Borough of Lambeth. 

Having worked with disadvantaged communities in the North East earlier in his career, as well as in one of the country's fastest growing rural counties in the east of England, Adrian has more recently held responsibility for place based services in one of central London’s high growth boroughs. 

Adrian has held a range of service based responsibilities, from cultural services to community safety, environment and neighbourhood services. Adrian has also worked in a range of corporate roles such as policy, performance and organisational development. A graduate of the Commissioning Academy and a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts (RSA), Adrian has also volunteered with a number of voluntary sector organisations. 

Adrian leads many of our most visible frontline services used by our residents and businesses including highways, transport, waste and recycling as well as the catering, cleaning and landscaping services that the Council provides to many local schools. The Department also provides important place based services such as property, planning, economic development and supporting the voluntary and community sector.

Adrian has responsibility for ensuring that place based services are joined up to maximise their positive impact on outcomes. This includes working in collaboration with our District, Borough and City partners to drive the local and regional economy and to ensure that residents and businesses are resilient and prosperous.

A native 'north easterner', Adrian has moved to Nottinghamshire to live with his family. He is a keen Newcastle United supporter and aspiring tennis player.  

Salary and pension

The overall remuneration package includes a basic salary as well as the amount the Council has to contribute to the pension of Local Government Pension Scheme members. Those Chief Officers who are members of the LGPS and earn between £107,701 and £161,500 pa contribute 11.4% of their salary to their membership of the scheme. The Employers contribution to the pension of employees, at all levels, is 22.2% since 1 April 2017. All Chief Officers are paid on a fixed salary.

Senior managers are expected to be on call at all times including weekends. Nottinghamshire County Council does not at this time provide any benefits that an equivalent senior manager in the private sector might receive in addition to the basic salary - for example performance-related bonuses, private health care or company cars.
