Chief Executive

Up to £190,162 p.a.

Southend-on-Sea is truly a City like no other. It’s a vibrant, entrepreneurial, and can-do City, where people want to get things done. It is a place of contrasts and diversity, with a burgeoning cultural scene, a place of business enterprise, but also escapism and fun with London just 45 minutes away. A City by the Sea where the vision, impact and potential are limitless.

For such a unique City we need a special Chief Executive. Someone who can deliver results today while steering us into and maximising the future potential. Your ability to drive performance in the here and now, as a truly values based leader, with the confidence to work with and support our political leaders will be most important.

Working collaboratively, inclusively, and inspirationally across the Council and with our partners, businesses and stakeholders will be second nature to you. We are fiercely proud of our City and our people and with a new Chief Executive we can meet our ambitions together.
