About the job 

Are you a problem-solver? Innovative? Collaborative? An inspirational leader and someone who sees opportunities rather than challenges? Can you influence and negotiate to achieve sustainable solutions to difficult issues?

This is an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated, creative individual to join our new Mobile Multi-Functional Team. You will be joining Newcastle under Lyme Borough Council at an exciting time as we develop and improve our services under our One Council transformational change programme.

We are looking to recruit a Mobile Multi-Functional Team Leader to assist our Mobile Multi-Functional Manager in shaping how the team and service is developed and implemented.

You will manage a range of enforcement, community safety and neighbourhood services including fly tipping, stray/dangerous dogs, abandoned vehicles, unauthorised encampments, untidy gardens, PSPOs, CPN/CPNWs, the town and neighbourhood rangers and off-street car parking, ensuring that relevant regulations and standards are adhered to and that case files are correctly and accurately compiled. You will develop a multi-skilled team to deliver these services and assist with the migration of further appropriate activities into the unit.

In your daily work, you will interact with a broad range of people from within NULBC and externally, including partner agencies, government departments, suppliers, technical specialists and peers. You will respond to service requests from our community and provide advice as required. You will work with our Customer Hub and other teams to implement digital workflow management systems, field-based technology and streamline processes to be as effective and efficient as possible.

You will provide guidance, technical and specialised business knowledge to the Mobile Multi-Functional Manager, the Head of Neighbourhood Delivery, elected members and other appropriate stakeholders, and taking account of standard practices, strategies, policies and specialist legislation, enable your service areas to operate more effectively and efficiently.
