Executive Director Place & Economy
Competitive salary

The opportunity to combine major services across a city and a county to contribute to the delivery of future growth and infrastructure for two authorities, is one of those ‘once in a career’ challenges.

This unique opportunity offers a chance to work within the economic powerhouse of Cambridgeshire – the fastest growing county in the UK - with its world renowned reputation for learning, life sciences, big pharma and new technological advances, alongside Peterborough, the UKs fourth fastest growing City, multicultural with a strong and diverse economy and excellent communication links to all parts of the country.

To create the place and economy part of the biggest shared service of its type in the country, we are understandably only interested in the best applicants. We want to hear from you if you have environment, economic development, place and transport experience at the highest level. Ideally you’ll be a serving director in a county, large metropolitan or unitary council where you have evidence of high levels of delivery, combined with the ability to understand and lead on the links between a range of influential partners, your individual services and the corporate requirements of a role at this level.
