Your Nottinghamshire, Your Future
Nottinghamshire is a place of legend, famous for its history and unique heritage. It is a place of ambition, where people are industrious, pioneering and creative. It is a place where business thrives, creating opportunities and prosperity.
We have a fourfold vision for Nottinghamshire – to make it a great place to raise a family; to build a future; to enjoy later life and to start and grow a business. Nottinghamshire is at the heart of the Midlands Engine, is central to the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership and home to the East Midlands Hub Station for High Speed 2. Nottinghamshire ranks first in the East Midlands for superfast and fibre broadband coverage.
Our economy has already diversified, with strong foundations for the future. This requires promoting the conditions that will help businesses thrive and proposer, and where appropriate, working closely with local partners – especially when there is the potential to unlock significant investment. As our economy and population continues to grow, we are creating a place where people want to live, thrive and do business.
We are seeking three talented and enthusiastic people to help deliver our ambitious growth and development priorities. Complementing our award-winning team, you will be making a significant contribution to the County Council’s commitment of championing economic growth and creating the conditions to help new businesses thrive and existing ones grow. The roles will be based at our headquarters, in West Bridgford.
The role will involve some travel, mainly within the County. The usual working hours are 37 per week, but there may be occasion for out of hours working when visits are arranged to suit customers who may be visiting from overseas or long distances, or when attending occasional events and other off-site functions during evenings/unsocial hours
