Thank you for taking an interest in this exciting role. This is a critical appointment for the North Worcestershire District Council partners and we are determined to give the successful candidate the support and opportunities needed to make a real impact.
We are in the process of restructuring our team to increase capacity for strategic input as well as increasing the delivery resource available. This will give the successful candidate significantly more capacity to operate and influence at a strategic level. This helps us to be absolutely clear on what the ideal person looks like: an individual who can use economic data to develop a powerful and compelling proposition for the area, showing how all of the local areas can flourish and grow.
We are committed to major investment in regeneration. We have a number of large and complex projects in the pipeline, the kinds of projects that enable individuals to raise their profile and make their name. For the right person – ambitious, credible, highly talented – this could be the step up that shapes your future career development.
Of course, all of this is happening against the backdrop of prosperity and growth within the region. Through a blend of infrastructure, location and the skills base locally, we are able to attract major global businesses as well as providing the right climate for entrepreneurialism and technology innovation. Tourism is thriving, manufacturing is strong and employment is high.
Together, we think this creates a remarkable opportunity. It is an exciting time and we firmly believe that we have the structure, team and tools in place to give you the platform you need to achieve great things.
Good luck with your application.
