Corporate Director for Growth, Enterprise and Environment

Salary circa £122k

Redcar and Cleveland is looking for an outstanding leader to join our high-performing senior team. We’re a unitary authority in the North East of England and are a fantastic place to live and work, from the spectacular coastline to the beauty of the North Yorkshire countryside and the surrounding small market towns and villages.

We have a proud past and a bright future. Our past was forged from world class iron and steelmaking and cutting-edge process industries and we are looking to maximise the potential of the South Tees area (centred on the former SSI steel plant site) as an area of huge potential to bring new and high quality jobs for local people.

Our new director will have a wide-ranging role taking in the place-making and growth agendas, plus responsibility for delivering clean, safe and attractive neighbourhoods which local people are proud to call home and visitors return to time and again. You’ll also play a key role within the Tees Valley Combined Authority and the first Mayoral Development Corporation outside of London in order to deliver sustainable growth across the borough.

This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious, creative and innovative leader who can develop and maintain strong working relationships with national, regional and local organisations to promote economic growth and lead wide ranging and varied teams, building confidence and capability.
