This job is closed and is displayed for reference only. 

Organisation:Leicestershire County Council 

Working Hours: Full Time , Hours per week - 37 


Appointment Type:Permanent 

Location:County Hall, Glenfield , Leicestershire, LE3 8RA 


Closing date:10 February 2020 at midnight 

Salary Range – £46,413 to £58,512
Innovation, collaboration and delivery – three of the driving forces behind our newly-established Growth Unit.
New homes are required in Leicestershire. And that’s why we’re actively planning to shape the county of the future, ensuring the right homes are in the right place and supported by the right roads, social care and other community facilities.
Leicestershire is a high-performing council. Our trailblazing supporting families programme, nationally-acclaimed work with partners developing a strategic growth plan and scooping the ‘most productive council’ in the country title for the last two years underline our success and forward-thinking approach.
Our new Growth Unit sits at the heart of the council and is charged with co-ordinating delivery of this dynamic, high-profile agenda across the authority.
The Growth Managers will play a pivotal role. Managing a portfolio of highly sensitive, multi-million-pound development sites, you will lead complex negotiations between a range of organisations, co-ordinate input, manage financial risks, maximise developer contributions and help secure vital Government funding.
If you’re a strategic thinker who thrives in a fast-paced environment, you could be the ideal candidate.
With knowledge of economic growth, you’ll be a skilled major project manager with knowledge or experience of developing housing and employment sites. You’ll have a proven track record of building successful relationships with senior managers and political leaders and use your energy, drive and influence to navigate complex negotiations, provide sound advice and deliver results.
Planning for Leicestershire’s future is a top priority. And if you’re keen to play a leading role, and relish the opportunity to shape the work of the unit, we want to hear from you.
Please see the Job Description / Person Specification which are attached further down on this page.
