Full time

Our vision for North Worcestershire is that it will be a destination of choice for employers, where a skilled local population can avail of a diverse range of economic opportunities. Our new Head of Economic Development & Regeneration will play a vital role in translating this vision into action. This is a uniquely high profile position – with accountability at a senior political level across three councils and a remit that is top of each organisation’s agenda. You’ll help to define, articulate and promote North Worcestershire’s economic proposition – identifying existing strengths and synergies, and nurturing new opportunities to pursue. And you’ll be central to the local skills agenda, working with employers and educational bodies to ensure the region’s needs are met and that local people have access to opportunities close to home.

It’s a role that demands strong commercial awareness coupled with a solid appreciation of both the skills and economic development partnership arenas. It’s important that you have a well-informed appreciation of working within a political setting, recognising both common and unique traits in such a partnership. And you’ll need to have the project / programme management expertise to keep complex projects moving at pace.
