This is a demanding role, offering variety and an opportunity to learn new skills and develop your knowledge. The successful postholder will be someone who can communicate and negotiate effectively both verbally and in writing to achieve the best outcomes for borough residents and secure best value for the Council. You will be offered regular supervision and support, access to training opportunities, and experience the benefits of working with friendly and supportive colleagues.
