North Devon Council's day-to-day operations are undertaken by five service areas, each with their own head of service. Heads of service meet collectively as the senior management team (SMT) managed by our Head of Paid Service.

SMT meets each week to discuss and make key decisions about the operations of the council.

As part of our commitment to transparency, we now publish senior salary data.
