Hemel Garden Communities Programme Director • £100k



Thank you for visiting this website to find out more about this key appointment.

Hemel Garden Communities is an ambitious development programme that will create green, connected and beautiful new neighbourhoods which will help to transform Hemel Hempstead and bring huge benefits to the new  communities it will create in St Albans District and for Hertfordshire overall.

We are now looking for a capable and accomplished individual to play the key role in lifting our vision off the page and bringing it to life. Someone who can build consensus among partners and momentum behind projects; who can ensure we allocate our resources where they will have the most impact; and who can articulate and lead a clear delivery path for our transformational outcomes: 11,000 new homes and 10,000 new jobs.

This is a role that requires exceptional relationship management and negotiation skills. You will need to work through different perspectives and priorities, while maintaining a sense of pace and purpose. You’ll need to have a good understanding of strategic Planning issues, (though a Planning qualification isn’t an essential requirement), you will know how to bring forward largescale development and you will be able to champion sustainable development and exemplar placemaking. 

For the right person this can be a career-defining role, with high profile and measurable outcomes, that will be part of our local area for generations. That kind of opportunity doesn’t come around often, and we look forward to working with the successful candidate to make it happen.

Good luck in your application.
