Welcome.

Thank you for your interest in the Director of Place and Communities role. The role offers the successful candidate a great opportunity to be part of something special and to make a real impact.  It is a great time to join Ashfield District Council and I am looking for a talented, ambitious and motivated Director to help me shape the future of the Council and District.

I am proud to say that the Council has a strong track record of delivery having achieved a positive cultural shift, but there is room for further improvement. As part of a talented and successful Corporate Leadership Team, you will be involved in all aspects of the Council’s business and work across Directorates on key projects including the development of our new Leisure Destination, a new Local Plan, our Digital Service Transformation programme and our Cleaner and Greener agenda.

As a senior leader you will represent the Council at a regional level increasing our influence with key partners and securing commitment and resources to our objectives. Within your Directorate you will be empowered and accountable for delivering key objectives and projects alongside day to day delivery.

Ashfield has a lot to offer the successful candidate and I can assure you of a positive and flexible working environment in which you can develop your career and deliver tangible improvements for our residents.
