Would you like to assist in the delivery of a wide range of housing growth and regeneration projects?

In this role, you will work with a range of external partners from both the public and private sector to ensure that housing projects are delivered on time, are resourced appropriately and that housing projects delivered with partners meet local need and contribute to the council’s vision to make Wigan a place where people want to invest, live, work and visit.
