Assistant Director – Capital & Investment Communities Directorate
We’re home to some of the brightest minds in the country. What’s more, we’re right at the heart of a truly global network of innovation. So when it comes to reinventing our entire transport and connectivity network – shouldn’t we go further than anyone else? We believe so. That’s why we’re radically rethinking how life in Oxfordshire should be. And why we’ll look to you to drive forward projects that are mind-stretching, career-building and destined to bring people and ideas closer together. This is a once in a generational chance to shape what the internationally renowned Oxfordshire will look like not just now but in 50 years . With thriving communities, a thriving economy and a natural environment that will be equal to the best.
We want you to make the most of Council and our partners’ assets, ensuring they bring life to our communities. We are serious about doing something different with our assets because we believe our communities deserve the best and because we recognise that the place of Oxford and Oxfordshire is a rare canvas to have the opportunity work on.
But this isn’t just about the public estate – you’ll also be responsible for the council’s entire capital programme. With highways, construction, schools and more to think about, it’s a highly strategic role with a big focus on delivery and governance. Success depends not just on responsible smart, investment but on collaboration. You’ll achieve your goals by working closely with numerous partners, negotiating astutely and enabling them to deliver. Ready to broker, deliver results and manage political and financial risk, you’ll strategically manage our public estate and have a firm grip on our capital portfolio.
Highly driven and motivated, your background could be in the public or private sector. Either way, you’ll have proved you can lead and manage complex, large-scale programmes and translate strategic vision into local delivery – all in collaboration with professionals, partners and customers. Equipped with leadership or management qualifications and a history in thinking outside the box you’ll be as ready to challenge as you are to support and encourage; as skilled at interpreting business data as you are at boosting efficiency; and as politically astute as you are commercially aware.
