Strategic Director of Communities & Environment

Basildon Borough Council

We’re seeking an ambitious Strategic Director for Communities and Environment to actively improve the health and well-being of residents through strategic leadership and creative problem-solving.

You’ll also need to collaborate closely with other directorates in the Council and external partners on large-scale projects.
