This is a brand-new role within our leadership team. Moving forward, our aim is to prioritise economic empowerment for our region, exploring new opportunities to drive revenue growth, stimulate investment and grow the prosperity of our communities.
You will play an integral role in realising this vision. Providing a significant contribution towards strategic and tactical planning for both Councils, you will be the lead figure in initiating economic growth plans. You will identify areas where we can integrate and transform delivery streams, embrace commercial opportunities and build our investment portfolio. You will lead on LEP initiatives, promote our Visitor Economy, shape regeneration solutions and take responsibility for complex project delivery.
Leading a strong and dedicated team, you will provide the organisational lead for all aspects of environment and commercial services, including Refuse/Recycling, Street scene, Grounds maintenance, Countryside Management, Leisure services, Building Control and Car Parking operations. You will ensure that frontline operational services are optimised, whilst also identifying commercial opportunities to deliver the most efficient and effective services. A key element in your success will be your ability to review process and best practice, take a strategic view of implementation and identify opportunities to work in a more integrated way.
We are looking for candidates with senior-level credibility and significant experience of relevant service areas. You must be capable of driving organisational change and improvement, inspiring others with a forward-thinking vision and tangible, meaningful business objectives. You must be able to motivate, support and maximise talent, with a strong evidence of collaborative working and joined-up thinking. Demonstrable experience of establishing partnership models and applying benefits of shared outcomes is essential.
