There has long been something magnetic about Brighton & Hove: 11 million people visit our city each year for its vibrant culture, stunning natural environment, close community and free spirit. So it’s no surprise to find that there’s plenty going on here. Whether it’s the largest Pride festival in the UK, the sheer audacity of the Royal Pavilion, or the dynamic innovation of our creative and digital industries, Brighton & Hove has something for everyone – daring to be different, open to the new, the experimental and the edgy. Few places can offer the diversity and vibrancy that fuels our Culture, Tourism and Sport offer.

That’s what makes this such a compelling career move – you will shape the way the city responds to opportunity and challenge as a place that hosts the world. It will suit an individual who understands the strategic connection between arts, culture, leisure and economic growth, and how a city’s all-round quality of place is an essential element of its appeal to businesses, visitors and those choosing a place to live. You’ll need to demonstrate a breadth of perspective that equips you to make connections across different sectors, nationally and internationally, and bring a practical understanding of different delivery and investment models. Your strengths in convening and collaborative leadership, and highly effective negotiation and influencing will increase the visibility, identity and reputation of the city experience, bringing the world to us.
