Emersons Green Town Council is seeking to appoint an innovative, forward thinking, and proactive Environmental Services Manager to not just manage the Council’s grounds maintenance and assets function but to also drive the green agenda within the Council and be an active part of the senior management team, supporting the Town Clerk and Deputy in ensuring the Council achieves its targets and aspirations.

Based in Emersons Green itself, with a population of around 17,500, a precept of £306k for 2023/24 and an annual budget of just over £400k, it is a satellite town to the large nearby city of Bristol.  The Council has an ambitious programme of growth, with aspirations to ensure the very best services and facilities are provided for its residents and visitors.  There are also a number of projects which the Council wishes to undertake and complete as soon as possible.

The Environmental Services Manager will lead on managing the Council’s environmental needs, requirements, and aspirations in its widest sense, as well as manage a small staff team directly.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they have relevant experience – a track record of service achievement, commitment to public service, be motivated, community focused, and possess sound managerial, communication and organisational skills.  A crucial requirement of this post is also to be highly competent with IT  and social media.  Candidates should ideally have a knowledge of local government.

Attendance at evening meetings and weekend events may be required, for which time off in lieu will be granted.  Emersons Green Town Council is committed to Equality of Opportunity and actively welcomes applications from all sections of the community.

A relocation package will be negotiated for the right candidate.

This process is being managed by a third party acting for the Town Council.  For an informal discussion and to access the Recruitment Pack and an application form then please call Mr Reg Williams on 07494 760535.
