We are looking for a strategic and resilient leader to become our next Assistant Director of Environment here in Doncaster. This is a high profile role and we are looking for somebody who can successfully collaborate with stakeholders and partners from a wide range of backgrounds, with a passion to drive change and to lead teams with credibility and vigour.

Our vision is to be a clean and green borough with decent air quality, where walking and cycling are easy and accessible, and where outside space is nurtured. Our regulatory, highways and streetscene agenda will be an integral part of measuring our success here. That is where you come in!

Doncaster is an ambitious borough, with a strong sense of community and support and a history of working well in partnership with others. We are also a strong performing authority, our resources and finances are well managed and you will be welcomed by an experienced and hard-working leadership team.

In short, we need somebody who is not afraid to roll their sleeves up and help us continue to make Doncaster a great place to learn, work and live. We need a leader who can:

  • Provide strategic support and guidance for elected members and Council on matters that are key priorities for our residents. You will deliver services that account for the vast majority of customer contact with the Council.
  • Jointly lead across the directorate and wider partnerships with pace and focus.
  • Be outwardly focussed, skilled at building external relationships to help place the needs of Doncaster right at the forefront of regional thinking.
  • Galvanise our teams and help define a truly collaborative team environment, whilst also robustly managing performance; in Doncaster we get things done and together we achieve more.

This role has the diverse remit of regulation and enforcement, highways and infrastructure, streetscene and waste. To be successful in this role you will be at ease operating at both strategic and operational level displaying adaptive leadership, have the vigour required to deliver public facing services whilst having the commercial acumen and diplomacy to lead strategically. You will galvanise your teams in a relentless focus on delivering customer focussed solutions, being the best they can be, delivering the best Doncaster.
