Create a Legacy

Director for Economy, Planning & Place

Six Figure Salary, plus relocation expenses

Our County Council is changing at pace to successfully tackle our challenges and capture the opportunities for all our communities in West Sussex. We are more than confident we have the ingredients to succeed. We now seek a Director, to join our Corporate Leadership Team to help shape and deliver our corporate ambitions on behalf of our communities as well drive our cultural ambitions. This isn’t your ordinary director role, we seek those who would describe themselves as extra-ordinary.

West Sussex is a unique and very diverse County with a lively mix of rural, urban and coastal places. Over half of the land area of our county is designated as protected countryside. Our county has good transport links to London via rail and the M23 corridor. Gatwick Airport offers excellent national and international links. This means significant opportunities for economic, housing and asset development and regeneration. We are committed to driving forward and unlocking our growth agenda and need an extra-ordinary individual capable of delivering large scale development, significant capital programmes and building strong, effective partnerships 'way beyond' the traditional boundaries that will deliver the best public services, for the best outcomes.

It’s a modern, ambitious approach to capturing the opportunities for all our communities that places our local people first at the heart of our thinking to achieve a sustainable and positive impact on all public services, our residents and our local communities. Ultimately, it’s about nurturing and building effective relationships, while also having a business mind set to work collaboratively to deliver more sustainable outcomes with our partners across the County. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to influence and deliver the big-picture place strategy of one of the country’s most forward-thinking authorities.
