Coastal Partnership East is a partnership of four local authorities, Great Yarmouth Borough, North Norfolk District Council, Suffolk Coastal District Council and Waveney District Council delivering a resilient and comprehensive coastal management service. Whilst the partnership may only be a year old it is already recognised as a great example of how Maritime Local Authorities should manage their coastline. Recognised as an innovator in partnership working, we are evolving rapidly and we need an exceptional individual to complete the management team.  

We are looking for a dynamic and experienced Coastal Engineering Manager to lead the coastal engineering team.  As a creative, enthusiastic and a highly motivated engineering professional you will inspire, guide, develop and manage our engineering team. You will need to be an exceptional communicator, able to work with our Board, senior officer group, key stakeholders and the communities we serve. Your skill and professionalism will be vital to help the development of our partnership and the delivery of an integrated and adaptive approach to coastal management.

You will have significant experience of delivering major projects with a range of civil engineering disciplines including construction safety management and an excellent knowledge of CDM 2015 requirements. You will have a sound understanding of coast defence projects and a good grasp of funding requirements for coastal projects.

In return, we can offer great opportunities for training and development. We want you to stay with us for the long-term, so we’ll give you all the support we can to build a great career with our partnership organisations.

If this is you, then we’d like to hear how you can contribute to this development now and for an exciting future. For an informal discussion regarding this post, please contact Bill Parker (Head of Coastal Partnership East) on 01394 444553.
