This role offers an exciting opportunity to join a council with huge ambition. We think Rossendale is a special place – built on two hundred years of industrial heritage and facing a bright future.

As a council we are working hard to improve the place. We have a number of achievements of which we are rightly proud. The previous post holder has lead a large-scale ambitious programme of economic development which has really begun to improve our town centres. You will be building on this success and working in a place where you can really make your mark.

You will lead on our work on economic development, regeneration, housing, planning, tourism and property. We are in the process of agreeing a new fouryear Corporate Plan which sets out an ambitious agenda to make our town centres even more vibrant as we recover from the Covid pandemic.

You will bring a track record of delivering real solutions which have made an impact on the ground, along with the energy and desire to join a forward-thinking council.
