On 1 April 2019, we will become East Suffolk Council – a new ‘super district’ authority, replacing Suffolk Coastal and Waveney. It will be the largest district council in the country, providing high quality services to a quarter of a million people across east Suffolk. Our councils are an exciting place to work and a great place to make a real difference to people’s lives, delivering vital services to those who need them most.

You will deliver on the shared ambition of Suffolk Public Sector Leaders to identify and implement the delivery of three short term transit sites in Suffolk.

You will work with partners organisations such as District, Borough and County Councils, Suffolk Police, external consultants and statutory authorities to identify sites, assess for viability, oversee the planning process and ensure effective communication and consultation with local stakeholders.

You will have robust project management skills, preferably from a property development or planning background, which you can deploy in a political environment.

You will hold a professional qualification or have equivalent experience at season professional level in a related field with a proven track record in project management of large scale developments.

In return, we can offer great opportunities for training and development and we’ll give you all the support we can to build a great career with our organisation. There’s also a superb benefits package including flexible working options and purpose built brand new office accommodation, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking.
