Fixed term until 30 November 2018.

Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils are committed to improving the quality of life for everyone living in, working in and visiting east Suffolk. Already a progressive and successful partnership, we are in the process of combining our two authorities to create the largest district council in the country, delivering vital services to those who need them most.

Our councils are an exciting place to work and a great place to make a real difference to people’s lives.

Your role will be based at the Leiston Together offices and will involve establishing a Business Association in Leiston to provide support to local businesses in partnership with various stakeholders. You will also undertake a review of public sector assets in Leiston and design a method for increasing public access and use of local public resources in the town.

You will have excellent interpersonal skills, including the ability to influence, communicate and negotiate at all levels. Experience of business development and the current challenges and opportunities facing small and medium–sized enterprises (SME’s) will be essential as well as experience of managing and co-ordinating a programme of activity.

In return, we can offer great opportunities for training and development and we will give you all the support we can to build a great career with our organisation. There is also a superb benefits package including flexible working options and as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme and pension scheme.
