Two senior management positions have become available at East Lindsey District Council.  The post holders will play an influential role in the future development of a range of services and projects; and as part of the Corporate Management Team; you will make a strong contribution to the strategic direction of the Council.

The Assistant Director for Growth will oversee Planning, Planning Policy, Economic Development, Tourism and Communications (our ‘Growth Team’); and alongside this, you will have corporate responsibility for advising on current and future capital assets (both commercial and service related).  We want strong, sustainable growth in our district, so we need somebody who can think creatively and work well with partners to create an environment where there is good business growth, more jobs and successful places.
