Head of Regeneration and Sustainability

Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council is one of the country’s largest Town Councils, serving over 100,000 people. We have bold plans for our Royal Town and big ambitions. Behind our aspirations is significant investment earmarked for regeneration and transformation. It’s a hugely exciting time – especially for our Head of Regeneration and Sustainability. If you have relevant experience, including managing partnerships, contracts, and budgets, you could take on a role where you’ll deliver vital objectives. Interested?

You will:

  • Represent the Town Council to deliver all facets of the Sutton Coldfield Town Centre Masterplan (SPD)
  • Play a leading role in supporting the Town Centre Regeneration Partnership and the new Town Board, to drive forward and deliver multiple complex projects.
  • Lead in coordinating the delivery of other related initiatives, such as the Active Travel Delivery Plan and in developing bids to attract new resources to the Town.
  • Build and maintain a range of relationships – statutory and other key partners, developers, local businesses, and community groups – to ensure Sutton Coldfield Town Centre and other areas across the town remain a great place to visit, live, work and invest.

It’s a broad role that demands both an operational approach and a strategic mindset. You’ll also need to be used to development planning and dealing with senior stakeholders. In other words, you’ll be working at a high level within Regeneration and Sustainability, and influencing contacts at the very top, so you’ll need the ability to collaborate and maintain positive working relationships. If you’re a tactful negotiator, so much the better – you understand business constraints whilst representing the Council’s best interests. Problems on the horizon? You will also be a forward thinker, working closely with the Chief Executive to resolve any issues.

Finally, if you are able to deliver and monitor the performance of complex projects, balancing strategic priorities with day to day problem solving, we would love to hear from you.

We are a small, cohesive team and we hope you will help maximise the opportunities ahead of us, for the benefit of our community. Join us and help ensure that the Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield becomes an even better place to live, work and visit

Closing Date: 5th August 2024 (12pm)
