Croydon hasn’t seen expansion like we are currently experiencing since the 1960s. We’re already well underway with some £5bn of investment that will be completed over the next few years. New offices, new retail, and new homes will provide well-paid jobs and high-quality accommodation for our rapidly growing population.

Croydon is a naturally ambitious council – so we’re looking for inspirational leaders who share our passion for supporting business growth and responding to local needs.

Strong partnerships are the foundation for the future. That’s why we’re constantly looking forward. We need to find creative new ways of working together with other agencies and the private sector to deal with the financial challenges ahead.

 

Because with growth comes increased demand – but also huge opportunity.

 

Chances like this only come along once in a generation, and our task, and maybe yours, is to shape a positive future for Croydon’s residents and businesses alike.

About the Role

This is an exciting time to join The Growth Team under the District Centres and Regeneration Division.

 

The role of the Growth Team is fundamental in ensuring funding and investment opportunities are optimised to deliver priority regeneration projects and programmes that ensure our districts, neighbourhoods and local centres remain vibrant and exciting places to live, work and visit.

 

The Growth Team requires a talented professional with the ability to make and articulate a convincing case for funding and investment. Reporting to the Growth Team Manager, the Growth Officer will be responsible for identifying and responding to new opportunities for funding and investment. Experience of working on a wide range of regeneration projects including transport, housing, economic development etc. is essential as is the ability to nurture and develop relationships with a number of strategic partners, funding bodies and potential investment partners. You’ll work closely with colleagues from teams across the Place Department to position the council/department for funding and investment.

The post holder will work collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams under District Centres and Regeneration, within the Place Department and with external partners to lead on the scoping and design of priority regeneration projects and programmes, and make the case for funding and investment.  

To be successful you will be a motivated, self-starter with a strong track record of delivering results.
