Imagine a diverse city full of contrasts, a strong identity and residents who are proud to live there. A bustling city center, a hub of renewal, commerce, housing, leisure and economic growth. A place that is home to high quality education, invests in infrastructure and employment initiatives, attracts foreign investment and provides local people with jobs for the future. It’s Bolton.
We emerge from the pandemic stronger than ever, facing challenges together, and it is this strength that will allow us to continue to realize our Bolton 2030 vision, born of the pride of our place and the aspirations of the local populations, with a simple ambition at its heart; a borough where our children will grow up in a vibrant place, built on strong and cohesive communities, thriving businesses and healthy residents.
As Deputy Director of Environmental and Regulatory Services you will be responsible for key local ‘front line’ services including waste management, street scene, green spaces, bereavement services, fleet management , licensing, environmental health, trade standards and enforcement. .
Services that not only ensure that our neighborhoods are well maintained, but play a vital role in promoting health and well-being, giving people access to attractive and well-maintained outdoor spaces, attracting investment and honoring our commitment to improving the environment. Together with the Director of Place Services, you will lead our modernization program, achieve efficiencies, adopt new technologies and develop new innovative service delivery models. Experience in developing effective relationships with staff, elected members and unions is essential, fostering a “One Council” culture, working collaboratively with internal colleagues and strategic partners, and promoting and the strengthening of external relations outside the borough.
