Involved at the centre of a high-profile housing development programme, you will be responsible for developing business cases, ensuring robust governance and controls are in place and planning and implementing activity across Council services. You may also be required to take on responsibility as a line manager to develop and coach others.

Sound like you? If so, we want to hear from you.
