Salary Details:
43,548 - 46,656
Advertising End Date:

About The Role
Aylesbury Vale District Council are looking for a strong leader to manage our newly formed Business Development Team (Maternity cover – 1 year Fixed Term Contract)

As an experienced and highly skilled people manager, you will be providing the principal point of leadership and guidance to a range of colleagues, shaping and structuring key business development areas of our business. You will have the ability to communicate confidently to all levels, and will be looking to work in a forward thinking and challenging management environment.

While experience in Commercial Waste Services, Planning or Building Control would be an advantage, it’s not a requirement. You will be working alongside our experienced experts, and we will expect you to bring fresh ideas and the drive to implement them.

You will bring a wealth of experience of working in a people management position, but being able to demonstrate commercially-minded behaviours is as critical to this role as your ability to drive cultural change and to improve the customer journey.  You will be expert in monitoring and improving performance and will understand the importance of creating efficiencies and spotting commercial opportunities.

For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Victoria Caputa, Business Development Team Manager vcaputa@aylesburyvaledc.gov.uk

About Us
AVDC is at the forefront of changing the way that local authorities work in the future. We have adopted a more commercial approach where we strive to generate income streams and find more cost effective ways of operating.

Our vision is to secure the economic, social, and environmental wellbeing of the area. Our aim is to create more business opportunities, so that ultimately we can ‘give back’ to the community. We already have success in providing extra home and garden services for sale to residents under the Limecart brand, and the business support services we offer under the Incgen brand.

We pride ourselves on offering a fantastic, family friendly place to work. We promote flexible working with many opportunities for learning and development, along with an attractive benefits package. We have a state of the art head office at The Gateway, with easy access and free parking.

As an ambitious council with a strong culture based on clearly defined values, underpinned by a Commercial Behavioural Framework, we are looking for enthusiastic, commercially minded, motivated people to be part of our team.
