Job Description

You’ll keep our council ahead of the curve by empowering staff and horizon scanning for new inspiration.

Careful where you scan though, you could become fixated on ours.
Erewash is a bustling borough in Derbyshire that is perfectly positioned between the vibrant cities of Derby and Nottingham. With a blend of busy urban and beautiful rural scenes, Erewash enjoys a strong and diversified economy, great transport links and an affordable cost of living. It’s no surprise therefore that our borough is a popular place to live, work and visit.
As a Council, we are ambitious and try to be a good all-rounder in providing for our communities. We are already succeeding at meeting our residents’ needs in delivering high performing services. We’re particularly good at maintaining our green spaces and have won more Green Flag awards than any borough of this size outside of London.
Due to the retirement of our current long-standing Director, we now seek a new Director to breathe new life into our already high performing portfolio of environmental and community services. This role is both operational and strategic and is an opportunity to be a true ambassador for Erewash at a local, regional and national level.
We seek an energetic and committed Director who has the right motivations and values; someone who is committed to public service and who understands the need to deliver on the Council’s agenda. Working closely with our Chief Executive, Elected Members and residents, you’ll be the face of all things Erewash, driving the modernisation of our frontline services and inspiring your expert teams as the Council rolls out its significant plans for growth.
If you think you’ve got what it takes to take Erewash to new heights, we would love to hear from you.
