Securing investment and development to deliver growth and prosperity across our city centre, towns and communities will be crucial for this role.  We are looking for someone with a strong background in programme and project delivery, someone who can take plans and turn them into reality, and who will be equally credible with a prospective development partner, a national public body or a community group.

We are open to all backgrounds and specialisms, but it is essential that you are experienced in leading key developments and investments to deliver a financial and social return on investment. 


Finally, as a senior officer, you will provide confident, visible, strategic and values-led leadership and direction to develop and maintain appropriate relationships with diverse stakeholders including; elected members, council officers, local communities, businesses, Government departments, and other external agencies in order to maximise capacity and pool resources wherever possible. You will act as an ambassador for the council, promoting and enhancing the authority’s image as a Member-led authority ambitious for the city, supporting the formation of strategic alliances and developing effective working relationships on a local, regional and national basis.
