Why Bassetlaw?

Bassetlaw in North Nottinghamshire is a district on the move, with the area set for a once in a generation multi-billion-pound investment. To help take advantage of this opportunity we are looking for a dynamic Head of Service to have an influential role in the delivery of some ground-breaking projects and continuing the improvement journey for our essential services.

Bassetlaw has been selected as the future home for the UKAEA's STEP prototype fusion energy plant, a globally significant project that will bring unprecedented levels of investment into the area. Added to this, we have successfully secured significant Government investment totalling £62m to deliver a programme of regeneration projects.

Our recently adopted Vision 2040 provides a clear set of priorities to direct our resources where they will have the biggest impact and to build on our legacy of energy production, manufacturing and logistics to become the greenest, most sustainable district in which to live and work.
