Job Description

As Director of Resilience and Recovery you will provide strategic leadership to the Directorate as a whole.  You will build relationships across MHCLG, Government and with local partners, playing a part in the HMG resilience community.

The Director has direct responsibility for three divisions who between them: lead relationships with Local Resilience Forums as they prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies and incidents; develop our local situational awareness, building on a new data and digital capability created during the pandemic; develop strategy and policy on strengthening local resilience and recovery, as part of a whole society approach.

The Directorate and its teams have gone through considerable change over the last 18 months as we built capability and innovative approaches through the pandemic.  A real strength of the Directorate is the way in which teams work collaboratively and in an agile way to deliver outcomes.  There is an opportunity for the Director to build on this, setting clear direction for the Directorate and shaping local resilience in the period ahead.

Leaders in MHCLG are also expected to role model our principles and values which complement the wider Civil Service Leadership Statement; you can see these within the candidate pack.
