Job description

Head of Economic Development Management
£500 to £750 p/d
3-month initial contract
I am working closely with my LPA client based in London and assisting in their recruitment for an interim Head of Economic Development on an initial 3-month contract.
An exciting opportunity has arisen to lead an Economic Development Service on an interim basis as the council moves towards an Inclusive Economy Strategy.
You could be who the council are looking for to jointly own and drive the delivery of the Inclusive Economic Delivery Strategy, working with the Assistant Director and other Heads of Service. You will advise on service delivery models including options for delivery and a funding strategy to take the service forward and make sure it is best placed to meet the financial challenges facing the authority.
The council continues to support businesses as they recover from the pandemic and as they face the current cost of living challenges. You will lead, coordinate and ensure the successful delivery of multiple projects and workstreams across the team.
As part of the Regeneration and Economic Development Senior Management Team, you will work closely with the Assistant Director, other Heads of Service and the lead Cabinet Member(s) to deliver corporate and programme objectives.
Ideally, the council are looking for an October 2023 start.
Interviews are due to take place before the end of the month if this post is of interest, please do get in touch at your earliest convenience to discuss. Further details and a full job description are available upon request.
