Now is an exciting time to be in Basildon, with huge investment taking place in both our town centres and housing estates.

You will also be responsible for the preparation and sign-off of the Council’s Asset Management Plan ensuring that strategic discussions take place within and between each department and amongst elected members supporting and providing innovative ideas and partnership working.

The successful applicant will be able to find deliverable and innovative solutions that focus the capital and property programmes, turning them into realistic and achievable outcomes.
