Contract Type
Full time

For individuals who thrive on innovation and who want to be part of a progressive and ambitious local authority, Watford presents the ideal opportunity. It’s a place with a lot going on. Major development schemes such as Riverwell, high profile town centre improvements and an outstanding leisure offer are consolidating Watford’s position as a thriving and vibrant town. Our joint ventures and commercial strategies are delivering positive returns, creating a solid foundation for our medium term finances and enabling bold investments such as two new activity parks in the north and south of the borough and innovative sustainable transport schemes. Coupled with our Watford 2020 change programme focusing on creating a more customer focused, digitally enabled and commercially aware organisation, it’s an incredibly dynamic and varied leadership portfolio.

It demands a versatile and confident management style: someone who collaborates well, is outcome focused and can lead with authority. As well as being a highly visible organisational leader, it’s equally important that you can negotiate, influence and build effective partnerships with others, especially in the context of our growth and regeneration agenda. Ambition, resilience and a desire to make things happen will all be key attributes, alongside an assured grasp on project and programme management.

Closing date: 23 June.
