About the role
Taking action for the city
We have exciting and big ambitions to make our city a fairer and more inclusive place with new and affordable homes and shared prosperity through community wealth building.
In this strategic leadership role, you’ll be essential to making change happen for our communities by leading a new wave of council house building, tackling rogue landlords, improving equality and inclusion, working to prevent homelessness, and providing the services and support our neighbourhoods need.
You’ll need to show that you can influence, advocate and negotiate on behalf of Brighton & Hove, empower your staff, support our elected members, and collaborate with our partners and communities to realise our city’s immense potential.
We’re proud of our reputation as a city which celebrates diversity and protects and enables the most vulnerable. If you’re a talented customer focussed innovator, join our Executive Leadership Team and help us drive and build on those values.
Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.
Work Permits: we may be able to obtain a Work Permit for this post but this is subject to meeting the requirements of the UK Border Agency's Points-based Immigration System.
From 6 April 2011 the Home Office has placed a permanent restriction on the number of migrant workers that all Tier 2 (General) Sponsors can recruit. Due to the restrictions we cannot guarantee that individuals that meet the requirements of the Points-based Immigration System will be issued with clearance to obtain work permits.
We welcome applications from all sections of the community but particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background as well as those who identify as male or trans as these groups are currently under-represented in our Directorate workforce.
As part of Brighton & Hove City Council's ongoing commitment to redeployment, please note that this vacancy may be withdrawn at any stage of the recruitment process, without prior notice if a suitable redeployee (internal employee at risk of redundancy) is identified.
