If you think you know Stoke-on-Trent then think again. The city is undergoing a transformation.

Just 90 minutes from London, the UK’s 13th largest city region has embarked on a journey with job creation and regeneration at its core with ambition to grow the local economy by 50% by 2043, moving from key city to core city status.

The award of Enterprise Zone status for “The Ceramic Valley” is a key factor and first step in achieving this ambition.

Stronger Together, the City Council’s Vision, has been developed by members to demonstrate how working together can create a stronger city we can all be proud of.

This vision has led to a number of priorities and objectives to secure the best possible outcomes for our residents.

We now need to strengthen our commercial ability in balance with our social responsibilities. To do this we have to invest in people who show the ‘can do’ attitude that will bring about positive change in our city.

Our new Assistant Director Investment, Planning and Regeneration will apply their experience to the local context, working to transform the city in innovative, collaborative and diverse ways.

In this role, you will keep up the pace of change, commercially deliver and work at all levels to develop the quality of our partnerships.

We will demand a lot of you, but this is a unique opportunity to step up and be part of the exciting changes that are happening now.
