Can you deliver Growth for all…?

Apply for this exciting role to lead on Medway’s monumental regeneration programme, ensuring all our communities benefit from developments across Medway. Our regeneration programme includes Medway’s Housing Infrastructure Fund Programme worth £170m, Rochester Riverside, our flagship regeneration site, and our ambitions to deliver new commercial workspace for businesses at Innovation Park Medway.

You will report to the Director of Place and Deputy Chief Executive, ensuring there is a clear strategic vision for your services driven forward at pace. You will work closely with our partners and stakeholders to create the next chapter in Medway’s story. We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and dedicated Assistant Director to join the Regeneration, Culture and Environment Directorate at Medway, who can bring new ideas and a track record of delivery to help shape Medway’s future.

We are ambitious for the people and place of Medway. Medway is a great place to live, work, learn and visit and the Director of Place and Deputy Chief Executive is keen to share our story with you. 

Please note: This post is permanent and funded from capital. This role is aligned with the HIF Programme, albeit other capital projects may be delivered beyond March 2024 which the AD Regeneration would be responsible for.
