Location: Melton or Lowestoft
Salary: £35,934 - £39,782 pa
Job Type: Full Time, Fixed Term for 3 years (37 hours per week)
Closing Date: 11:30PM 9th Sept 2020
Your base of work will be their offices in Melton or Lowestoft, but there are opportunities for flexibility with potential regular home working or working flexibly across their partner offices.
They are looking for an individual who is educated to degree level or equivalent, who has previous experience of developing, managing and delivering strategies within the public sector and an understanding of the role of the visitor economy. You will need excellent communication skills and the ability to work collaboratively with a wide range of partners and stakeholders
The visitor economy is more broadly defined than the tourism sector. As well as holiday accommodation, visitor attractions, and travel businesses, it includes the arts and creative sector, cultural venues, performance spaces and performers, heritage buildings and natural landscapes and the broad sport, leisure and active lifestyle offer.
Pubs, restaurants and other hospitality businesses are also integral to sustaining domestic and international visits, and rely on these visitors to survive. There is therefore a strong inter-relationship and dependency with much of the wider economy, particularly high streets.
In return, the Council can offer great opportunities for training and development. They want you to stay with them for the long-term, so they will give you all the support they can to build a great career with the organisation. There is also a superb benefits package including flexible working options and purpose built brand new office accommodation, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking.
