Attractive salary and benefits


Southend-on-Sea is a place like no other. And what a place to live, work and play. A vibrant, entrepreneurial place, with a burgeoning cultural scene, we are a place of escapism and fun, where the underground meets the mainstream.  Our vision, impact and potential are limitless.  Forget the norm.  Forget expectations.  Forget the beaten path.  Southend is the alternative seaside experience.

For such a unique place we need a special Chief Executive.  Someone who can deliver results today while steering us toward our vision for 2050.  Your ability to drive performance in the here and now, as a truly values based leader, will be your most important quality.  Working collaboratively, inclusively and inspirationally across the Council and with our partners, businesses and stakeholders will be second nature to you.   We are fiercely proud of our place and our people and know we have everything we need to meet our ambitions.  Come to Southend and make the extraordinary happen.
