New Director of Legal and Democratic Services

16 December 2020

Our new Director of Legal and Democratic Services, Helen Barrington, joined us on Monday 7 December 2020.


Helen came to us from Gedling Borough Council in Nottinghamshire where she was a Director of Organisational Development and Democratic Services.

Helen has outstanding legal experience, has led a wide range of council services and will bring significant expertise and knowledge to Derbyshire at a time of both unprecedented challenge and opportunity.

Helen replaces Simon Hobbs, who was our Deputy Director of Legal Services and acting Director of Legal and Democratic Services. Simon retired earlier this month.
