Assistant Director, Neighbourhoods

Ashfield District Council
Sutton-In-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire
salary up to £71,933, pay award pending
Closing date
3 Jul 2024

Ashfield is thriving.  We are proud of our district and our ambition is to be ‘great’ across all our services.   We have already secured over £200m of investment for the district, and we are driving better services and local growth through innovation and by adopting a ‘can-do’ attitude.  The council is financially sustainable and secure, and we are also maximising the benefits of our location - right next to the M1 and sitting between the core cities of Nottingham and Sheffield.


Ashfield is a great place to work and we know that we already excel in many areas, but we want all our services to be the best.  We are therefore seeking an exceptional Assistant Director for Neighbourhoods to lead our waste, recycling, streetscene, parks and fleet services – and we need someone who can combine a strong technical understanding with a focus on transformation and improvement.   We are keen to use data more effectively to help us become more efficient and improve services, so our new AD will need to combine robust and clear leadership with an analytical and problem-solving mindset.  And with new regulations and legislation impacting upon these services, we need to be ready for the changes ahead.   Candidates will also need high levels of political understanding, with the skills to support our Members’ ambitions for residents.


This is a great opportunity for ambitious and talented people who want to make their mark and who can live our values.   For more information, please contact Luke Judd at Starfish on 07435 270 659 or
