Help make Cornwall Council an even better place to be

Cornwall Council is seeking two Heads of Service to join our Neighbourhood Services Directorate to work closely together to oversee, develop and enhance the beautiful environment that Cornwall Council and its many stakeholders care so passionately about. 

  • Head of Environment Assets and Service
  • Head of Environmental Growth and Performance Services

The roles are defined to enable the development and enhancement of existing strategies and design fresh strategy and policies to tackle challenging emerging agendas such as climate change. There is also a need to translate strategic aspiration and council policy into operational service delivery by working closely with partners, contractors, town and parish council's and volunteers.  

This is an exciting opportunity to help put Cornwall at the forefront of best practice in the way in which the Natural and Built Environment assets and services are managed and which include public spaces, countryside (and access), beaches, cemeteries, closed churchyards, historic and archaeological sites and structures e.g. engine houses, forest, sites and trails, AONB, country parks, coastal defences, coastal paths.

Cornwall Council is committed to safeguarding and is an equal opportunities employer.
