We are looking for an exceptional leader to be our new Head of Housing and Community Development.

You’ll be joining us at a very exciting time. The council has adopted a clear vision as an open and enterprising council that works in new ways with communities, residents, staff, businesses and partners, transforming services to meet the demands of the 2020s.

Vision 2025 sets out four strategic priorities for our county: economy, health and care, learning and skills, and residents and communities. These priorities are made up of innovative projects including building new homes, Mid Wales Growth Deal and 21st Century Schools, which will transform the quality of life for residents in Powys.

You will be joining a dynamic new Senior Leadership Team and will lead on Leisure, Recreation, Housing and Regeneration Services for the council.  You will be working closely with a diverse range of council services and partner organisations across the UK. We are determined to be a council that is driven by high performance, collaborative working and valuing people.

You will be responsible for leading on the Mid Wales Growth deal, a joint economic partnership with Ceredigion Council to develop both urban and rural communities, stimulate the growth of small businesses, and attract new companies to mid Wales.

Powys also has a stunning natural landscape with vibrant historic market towns. You will play a key role leading our tourism strategy that will raise the profile of this beautiful county as a place to live, work and play.

If you feel you have the values, skills and behaviours to improve the lives of people in Powys, then we would love to hear from you.

Powys is a wonderful place to live and work. We certainly think it is - come and see for yourself.
