We are looking for an exceptional candidate to fill a major new role for the authority as Head of Investment, working directly with the Director of Regeneration to lead on the Investment programme for the Council. 

The primary purpose of this role is to build the Councils investment platform, and its reputation, to deliver the regeneration agenda for the City and grow and develop the local economy of Wolverhampton.

We are at a pivotal point in time for our city, with the potential for exponential growth.  The successful candidate will need to be a strategic thinker, with an entrepreneurial mindset and understanding of both national and international inward investment markets, as well as capital and property opportunities, being adaptable and able to deal with ambiguity and change.

You will lead on significant pieces of work on behalf of the Director, to ensure delivery of our ambition vision for the city.  This includes capital investment, Tourism and cultural Trade and Investment, and overseeing the development of an investment portfolio and delivery strategy.  This will mean building and managing effective relationships with Councillors, and external partners across complex issues and a number of services.

You will have sound relationship management with contacts, and organisational skills that can improve and create excellent relationships with internal and external key stakeholders and investors.

The post will work with the regeneration leadership team.
