Description:
InvestSK is an exciting new initiative launched by South Kesteven District Council. As a private company wholly owned by the Council, InvestSK brings together a talented team of economic development, arts, heritage, tourism and place-management professionals, all with one vision: to drive the growth and prosperity of the district for all.

The company’s brief is both a complex and challenging one, with the team firmly focused on working with the private and third sector but retaining strong links with the public sector to ensure effective delivery and accountability. As a new company, there will be an initial focus on ensuring the best systems are in place for it to operate at optimum efficiency, building confidence through quick wins that sit within a clear strategic approach, and building team integration. There must always be half an eye to commercialisation and attracting external funding to complement core funding and this commercial approach will increase over time.

Anyone joining the team must be comfortable with a flexible, agile environment, willing to deploy their own initiatives and skills-set whilst fully respecting the capabilities and views of colleagues. This role will appeal to someone with a go-to attitude who can also demonstrate the capacity of a rounded, holistic perspective and the ability to involve and inspire others – acting as the CEO’s right-hand in delivering InvestSK’s vision.

At InvestSK, we are keen to develop our staff by supporting them in adopting new and challenging responsibilities – growing our people as well as the district.

The role of Assistant Chief Executive is a new position, closely supporting the CEO and leading on one of the company’s strategic themes: Regeneration & Place-making; Culture; Economic Development & Skills. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate extensive experience at a senior level in one of these disciplines.

The closing date for applications for this position is Sunday 10th February.

Supporting the CEO in the operations of the company: financial and accounting management; service provider contracts; company administration.

Ensuring the satisfactory delivery of one of the company’s key strategic thematic areas including performance and financial monitoring. Working closely with the team leads to ensure effective programme management, budgeting and project delivery, as well as staff development and line management. Building effective relationships with strategic partners, relevant to the company’s interests, the growth of South Kesteven, and in particular the area of thematic delivery. Establishing and maintaining a positive and productive relationship with InvestSK’s sole member, South Kesteven District Council, across all aspects of the company’s work. Ensuring InvestSK is a visible and credible deliverer of projects across the whole South Kesteven district area, as well as a partner of choice for external parties. ESSENTIAL SKILLS

Excellent corporate operations experience, including financial management, governance, operations, and contract management. Excellent programme and budget management skills.
