About the role

In this strategic leadership role, you’ll be essential to making change happen by leading a new wave of council house building, tackling rogue landlords, improving equality and inclusion, working to prevent homelessness, supporting the city’s recovery and renewal from the Covid-19 pandemic and providing regulatory services to our neighbourhoods and business community.

You’ll need to show that you can influence, advocate and negotiate on behalf of Brighton & Hove, empower your staff, support our elected members, and collaborate with our partners and communities to realise our city’s immense potential.

We’re proud of our reputation as a city which values diversity and protects and enables the most vulnerable. We’re committed to being a fair and inclusive employer and public service provider and an actively anti-racist council.  We particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background, LGBTQ, as well as those who identify as disabled to apply.
