A role with roots in the community

The Role

Chief Executive

£115k - £120k

Our new Chief Executive will be a passionate advocate for both people and place: providing clear leadership and direction that empowers and enables staff; and working closely with our partners to identify and deliver the best outcomes for our district.

It’s important that you are open-minded and outward looking – someone who can respond quickly to opportunities that present themselves and ensure that our organisational resources are aligned to the right initiatives. You will model the approach that we want others to adopt – promoting innovation, encouraging commercial thinking, and leading change from the front. Positive and optimistic, but pragmatically well-informed about the challenges that we face, you’ll work closely with our political leadership to promote Epping Forest, supporting economic growth while protecting the natural assets that, coupled with our proximity to the capital, makes our district a destination of choice.

We want to hear from individuals with proven leadership credentials, who have successfully led change and delivered sustained improvement in their career to date. We’re looking for commitment over time, and a readiness to be a visible and accessible presence in our community. If that sounds like you, Epping Forest could be the ideal location for your next move.
