Executive Director, Economy, Investment and Public Health

Essex County Council
Salary up to £160,000 plus allowance

We are busy towns and cities, port communities, rural villages and have the longest coastline of any county in Britain. We are also critical to the country’s growth agenda. We are Essex. The strength of Essex is its people and we are here to nurture a safer, better connected society that empowers our residents and celebrates the county’s diversity. We want to work locally to create homes not houses, places not developments and communities not estates.

The Role

We are currently seeking a new Executive Director, Economy, Investment and Public Health, who will lead a strategically vital portfolio of services and work alongside our numerous partners including the district councils and central government.  By securing inclusive and sustainable economic growth and improving health and wellbeing, you will ensure Essex’s built environment creates jobs, generates wealth, and improves the quality of life for all our residents.   Your expertise in capital investment, regeneration, housing supply and how this agenda can impact the wider determinants of health will be underpinned by your passion for building powerful relationships and networks at a regional and national level.
