Executive Director, Economic Growth & Neighbourhood Services c. £130k
Assistant Director, Digital Transformation to £92k
We’re about to enter an unparalleled window of opportunity for regeneration and growth. You’ll accelerate the pace of activity across all economic sectors – retail, health, education, professional services and knowledge businesses – and engage with emerging projects as an influential venture partner. You’ll be accountable for the full range of services - from planning, assets & land and regeneration, to housing, environmental services, arts and culture.
An expert at making things happen, with a good technical grasp of structures and models, you’ll also have a profound understanding of the impact of development and economic growth on communities. We’ll assess the success of the portfolio on its overall contribution to place shaping, not merely lettable area and net yield. You’ll complete our recently appointed Corporate Management Team as we shape a prosperous, active and successful future for all of Reading’s people.
This is the complete digital role. You’ll provide a detailed vision of how to secure leading-edge technological advantage, oversee its design and procurement, and deliver it to our residents. We’ve already done much of the groundwork at service level, so you’ll focus on real added value. With expert knowledge of both change and ICT, you’ll have gained substantial senior experience in a digital-first business as well as in a public service organisation.
