Contract Type
Full time

Horsham is a district with a great deal to offer and is consistently identified as one of the UK’s most desirable places to live. So this is a great move for an accomplished leader who can bring about our ambitions for our residents, businesses and the environment in our beautiful part of West Sussex. Priorities include delivering carbon reduction and biodiversity, ensuring the right houses are built in the right places, developing our economy, communities and organisation in the post-lockdown world, while keeping the Council financially secure.

Part of the Council’s corporate leadership team, this is a role with real influence – within and beyond the Council, and a portfolio of services that includes our parks, theatre and museum, environmental health and licensing, waste and parking, housing and community development. You’ll also take the lead on our environmental agenda.

It’s vital that you are a talented manager of projects, people and other resources – a supportive colleague who can make things happen with drive, resilience, ambition and humour. We don’t have a fixed view on your professional background – as long as you can assure that you can deliver results, understand our business and our residents and have a commitment to public service and the environment that matches ours.
