Website BasildonCouncil Basildon Borough Council

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 Head of Regeneration, you’ll lead and manage complex projects across regeneration, and investment sectors. Working closely with the Planning service, you’ll confidently manage sizeable financial plans and provide strategic input for economic frameworks. As part of this, you’ll provide full support by preparing reports, attending meetings and giving sound advice. Ensuring that service delivery plans work well with wider council plans, you’ll have a hugely positive impact on our residents.

We’re looking for someone with at least five years of relevant, high-level experience across planning and delivery. Your ability to organise and motivate will help you when leading our in-house building company Sempra, as well as other specialist teams. You’ll also need a detailed understanding of the Thames Estuary Gateway and ASELA growth areas. And, as you’ll be the first point of contact for most areas, you’ll need to have great people skills.

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!
