About the role
The successful candidate will demonstrate tact, discretion and diplomacy at all times.
The role requires excellent communication skills, exceptional organisational and diary management skills, the ability to prioritise and juggle multiple requirements and deadlines, and the ability to work autonomously at times with some ambiguity and to be able to make pragmatic decisions independently.
It is also expected the successful applicant will have a high degree of flexibility and adaptability.
Right now, we are mainly working from home and can offer flexible working arrangements to suit your circumstances on an ongoing basis, as well as safe office accommodation when needed.
You will be working collaboratively with colleagues across the council and relevant organisations across the city to make connections to deliver shared goals. You will have the qualities to build effective relationships, and to ensure action is targeted where it is most needed.
Brighton & Hove City Council serves a vibrant city by the sea – a place that has ambitions to be a fairer city with a more sustainable future. We have made a pledge to become an anti-racist city, these ambitions, along with our Covid recovery plans will shape the work of our teams over the next few years.
This is an exciting time to join the organisation!
