No two days will be the same. You will be at the heart of transformational projects, building effective relationship across wider stakeholder groups to support our business objectives. Working closely with Place Department colleagues to ensure a coordinated and consistent approach, you will lead on and provide consistent briefing and management control for all of Nottinghamshire County Council’s dealings with the Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership (D2N2 LEP).

This Growth and Economic Development Officer role will have close engagement with the Leader of the Council, two elected Members and the Chief Executive. All need properly briefing about the meetings they attend (especially but not limited to, the D2N2 LEP Board, the D2N2 Investment Board and the European Social Investment Fund (ESIF) Sub-Committee).  In practice, this means turning the information and intelligence passed through organisations and identified via routine liaison with colleagues, specialist departments and at meetings into: high-quality briefings, slides and reports. This approach will inform and task departmental officers and support our elected Councillors and senior officers in relation to major cross-cutting issues for the Council and for Nottinghamshire.

You’ll work with colleagues across the Council and beyond, drawing on experts, and building and maintaining long-lasting collaborative relationships. You will be involved (on occasion leading) several projects to accelerate business and economic growth in Nottinghamshire. All aimed at ensuring the County reaches its potential for supporting local businesses to grow and expand.

Disabled applicants who meet the essential shortlisting requirements will be guaranteed an interview. A job share scheme is available for all full time posts: both permanent and temporary, unless otherwise stated. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks.
