Build your legacy at Basildon

Here at Basildon Council, we create opportunities to improve lives every single day. We look after around 172,000 people, all living and working across our towns, and Borough. It’s our job to make sure they thrive. We do that by being  ambitious and dynamic with our approach to service, and overcoming challenges with creative solutions. We work in this way across the whole council, making it a place where your career can thrive too.

As the Commercial Services Manager, you’ll explore opportunities to provide better services and evaluate their risks. You’ll ensure the services are designed around customers’ needs and respond to changes that will result in the best outcomes. Building strong relationships with partners, government bodies and stakeholders will be a major part of your role. And, leading effective management of commercial contracts and suppliers.

You’ll need extensive knowledge in a wide range of operational areas, and managing projects with strong customer focus. You’ll be able to show us examples of complex programmes you’ve led that resulted in culture change. Also, your supportive and motivational nature will not only guide your team, but help you adapt to change as part of a multi-disciplinary department.

We’re accessible to London and other parts of Essex, thanks to our great car and rail connections. We offer competitive holidays, which increase with your length of service, and a pension scheme. You can also get childcare vouchers, discounted rates for health, fitness and local stores – and free parking!
