Director of Environment & Highways

Slough Borough Council
Slough, Berkshire
up to £119,000

Slough Borough Council is never far from the headlines at the moment - the challenges are well documented, but there’s been much less coverage of Slough’s recovery and improvement journey. There is a new corporate plan in place outlining Slough’s commitment to residents, including a determination to close the healthy life expectancy gap and improve the life chances of the borough’s children and young people. There is also a new top team in place – all focussed on turning the council around. Slough has already made some great progress but there are still mountains to climb. That is why the council is looking for an extraordinary group of senior leaders to join them for what will undoubtedly be the biggest and also the most rewarding challenge of their careers.


The Director of Environment and Highways will have responsibility for delivering key environmental front line services, maintaining and improving the borough’s transportation and highways network and acting as the council’s lead professional for engineering and highways. Slough Borough Council is looking for a creative, dynamic and transformational leader with a commercial mindset as well as the grit and ambition to transform service delivery, performance and culture while driving efficiencies and generating income. This exciting, yet challenging role, will require strategic and operational grip, ambition and a passion for thinking differently.
