Winchester, the ancient capital of England, has so much to offer to those who live, visit or work here. There is a wealth of heritage and culture that makes our City unique and we are repeatedly named as one of the most desirable places to live in the country.
But it is not only our city that makes us special, we are a city in an amazing district: 240 square miles, 40% in South Downs National Park, bustling market towns and villages, business and retail opportunities at Whiteley. Our district is vibrant and diverse.
We are committed to doing all we can to protect our natural environment and ensure a climate resilient district. We have set ourselves ambitious targets: that that the activities of our council will be carbon neutral by 2024 and the district by 2030.
You will play a central part in delivering the Council’s ambitious priorities – joining our leadership team, listening to our communities, working with members, external partners and staff alike and taking on a key corporate leadership role as well as leading on your own portfolio of services. You can expect plenty of opportunity to develop your leadership credentials – our residents and our elected members have high expectations, and we have equally high expectations of ourselves. But it’s also a highly supportive and collaborative place to work.
If you want to make a positive difference for our communities, I look forward to receiving your application.
