Can you lead change, improvement and modernisation in development management, forward planning, climate change and conservation services?

An exceptional opportunity has arisen for someone to lead the planning and climate services we provide for our partner councils. For this job we are much more interested in where you are going, rather than where you have come from. Consistent with the wider planning ecosystem, you will be accountable for strategic direction and transformation of services across development management, forward planning, climate change and conservation services that Publica provides for three district councils.

This is a newly created role and we believe this is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious candidate. You will have gravitas, political awareness and be able to demonstrate a track record in leading and driving change, transformation including service improvement and delivery.

It is going to be important that the post holder quickly develops a strategic plan for services that are within this remit. Please follow the link below for the

comprehensive job description, which will give you a strong idea of the progress we have made and the agenda we have in mind in line with our expectations.

If you think this sounds like the sort of role where you could thrive and where you think you can make a difference, we would love to hear from you.
