Job Description

Head of Environmental & Commercial Services

Salary: £82,340

Moray is a diverse area of natural beauty where people choose to live, learn, work and enjoy life.

With an unrivalled quality of life, friendly welcoming communities and the ability to respond to change quickly, Moray offers a unique and exciting opportunity to influence and shape the future of public services in the area.

We are an ambitious authority, embracing new challenges and encouraging innovation and our Head of Environmental and Commercial Services needs to be able to thrive and inspire in that environment. This is a challenging opportunity to shape the future direction of the council, to improve and modernise services for people living in Moray and put their needs at the heart of responsive service delivery.

We have ambitious plans to enhance the lives of our community and are looking for a dynamic, forward-thinking and highly organised individual to join our management team and help deliver our ambitions.

Our Heads of Service must be resilient and highly motivated. We are looking for someone whose drive, enthusiasm and creativity will bring clear strategic insight and direction to this demanding role. An exceptional candidate who has substantial experience and success in managing at a senior level and who can demonstrate a track record of delivery of top quality public services is required. You need to be an innovative thinker, focused on effective outcomes and capable of delivering tangible results through effective people, resource and financial management with a continuous drive for improving standards whilst achieving best value.

As Head of Service, you will take the lead role for ensuring that key environmental and commercial priorities are delivered. This includes:

  • maintaining an efficient road network and an effective waste management service
  • working to deliver the Council’s Climate Change Strategy including promoting and developing active and green travel across the authority
  • delivering flood risk management plan actions for Moray while also developing surface water management plans and implementing surface water infrastructure improvements in vulnerable flood risk areas, all taking due cognisance of the impact which climate change is having on flood risk management in our area
  • ensuring that service infrastructure is fit for purpose, including our bridges, depots, harbours and waste infrastructure

If you can help us with the challenge of making the most of constrained financial resources and increasing demands on council services to continue to improve outcomes for Moray, we would welcome your application.
