Message from Bev Smith, Chief Executive

Thank you for your interest in this role. If successful, you will be key to moving forward the work of our Economic Regeneration, Business Focus and Cultural Services sections, building upon our strengths and at the forefront of exciting developments.

The Head of Economic Regeneration will need to support our journey of improvement and enable team working to create a collaborative relationship between officers and members. All of this will help us provide a better service to our residents and businesses and support our ambitious plans for growth and development.

North West Leicestershire District Council is focusing on the opportunity for growth: more and better businesses, across all sections of the economy, creating more and better jobs for local people and reasons for people to live and visit here. The Head of Economic Regeneration post will give you a golden opportunity to use all of your prior knowledge, skills and experience together with passion for local economic development and working in partnership, as part of the council’s executive team.

The Council is in the project delivery phase of many initiatives across the district and the role is crucial to enabling and making these projects a reality for the benefit of our communities. Examples include the final business case for the Future High Street Fund; the Coalville Regeneration Framework and delivery which includes the regeneration of key brownfield sites; a new cinema in Coalville; a programme of public realm projects including Marlborough Square; asset purchase to support regeneration; and programmes to support our towns including Kegworth, Castle Donnington, Ibstock and Measham.

The Coalville Project encompasses a programme of projects, events and initiatives across the council and involving a broad range of stakeholders. The Head of Economic Regeneration is tasked with supporting the achievement of this ambitious vision, leading on the growth agenda and delivery of the Coalville Project.

This post will continue to ensure the council is open for business and supports the need for the district and community to grow, balanced against the need to conserve our historic and green infrastructure.

You must have considerable economic regeneration experience within a local authority setting, but just as important will be your positive and creative approach, strategic understanding and collaborative management style.

Bev Smith
Chief Executive
