For the last ten years Salford has maximised its location, assets and capacity to deliver tangible benefits for the growing population of both Salford and the region. Billions of pounds have been invested in new infrastructure and public realm, new homes, education and health facilities, new businesses and shops, from major developments to city parks, revitalised waterways and green spaces. The City's regeneration prospectus, Salford 2025 sets out an ambitious vision to continue this transformational change founded on a commitment to contribute significantly to the Greater Manchester growth agenda.
The City Council's Regeneration Team led by a Development Director plays a key role in delivering this ambition on behalf of the City Mayor and City Director. Due to promotion of the previous post holder, an exciting opportunity has now become available for an ambitious regeneration professional with a robust commercial background to play a lead role as Head of Development promoting the continued growth of the City.

The ability to work in partnership with the private sector to promote innovative ways to secure commercial and public finance and investment funding together with a clear demonstration of market awareness are crucial. The post will also provide strategic programme and project support to major cross-cutting capital investment projects and programmes across the City, overseeing the work of the Regeneration and Development Teams.
This is a senior role within the Regeneration Team and you will need to have significant experience of leading, implementing and managing a range of policy and strategy initiatives, programmes and/or projects that deliver physical and economic transformation.
