Create a Legacy

Our Council is changing at pace to successfully tackle challenges and capture opportunities for all of our communities across West Sussex. We are committed to making West Sussex an area that is cleaner and greener, thriving and vibrant, whilst respecting the uniqueness of our wonderful county

To support our corporate ambitions to position our county as the best place to live, work and visit, we seek an innovative Director of Communities to transform how we engage with the people we serve. A highly experienced leader with a solid track record of improving customer outcomes, you will focus on developing strategic partnerships with our key stakeholders, including health, districts and boroughs and the business sector, leading on a number of district and borough-wide programmes to support our communities to become safer, stronger and more resilient. Ultimately, you will create a legacy for improved outcomes for our communities, where they are able to help themselves and one another.

If you, like us, believe in changing the lives of residents through stronger engagement and delivering better outcomes, we want to hear from you.
