Assistant Director, Regeneration and Place Delivery
Your work won’t just change the landscape of Thurrock, it’ll transform its people, its prospects and its potential.
This is a ground-breaking time for Thurrock. Our borough is a place that is changing and developing at pace and we have a huge opportunity for growth that is almost unrivalled elsewhere in the UK. Together, we’re excited by the opportunity to transform the economic, social and environmental opportunities that are open to our residents and the business community.
Thurrock’s growth strategy includes £20billion of investment in jobs, homes and infrastructure; 1,000 acres of land ready for business development; three international ports along 18 miles of riverfront, just 30 minutes from central London by train; and the creation of 24,500 new jobs. Thurrock is the largest regeneration area in the UK, with six major growth hubs in the borough alone.
In support of these ambitions, we seek a new Assistant Director for Regeneration & Place Delivery to develop and deliver the Council’s enormous regeneration and capital delivery portfolio. Following a period of change as a result of a restructure within the directorate, we need a true leader of people to bring innovation and inspiration to our technical teams. You will have the scope to build out your resources and develop people to create a culture of excellence, all whilst ensuring our diverse range of small to major projects and schemes are well managed, governed and fit for purpose in alignment with our growth plans.
As Assistant Director, you will oversee all of Thurrock’s local place-based growth and regeneration initiatives. Reporting to the Corporate Director for Resources & Place Delivery, you will also collaborate with Elected Members and key partners across the borough to ensure our local strategies are delivered to the highest standard. You will play an integral role in driving our exciting regeneration plans, which include vast improvements to Grays town centre; a major housebuilding and economic development scheme in Tilsbury; the Thames Enterprise Park development; and the £1bn investment programme in Purfleet.
This is Thurrock as you’ve never seen it before. If you think you’ve got what it takes, join us and help to lead cutting-edge change within our borough.
