We want to attract individuals who can bring assured and current subject matter expertise to each of these areas. And we want people who can look beyond their own professional specialism; who can make connections across the council’s strategic agenda, working with colleagues and partners to ensure a cohesive, joined-up approach that draws on all the talent and resources we have at our disposal. Finally, we are keen to hear from people with leadership skills and aspirations: managers who encourage and develop others to innovate and modernise, and individuals who reflect on their own learning and professional development.
It’s a complex environment - often challenging, but incredibly professionally rewarding. Initiatives such as the development of a new garden community at Manydown and the £500m town centre business park regeneration at Basing View – both leveraging the council’s own extensive landholdings - demonstrate that we operate on a different scale to many, and this comes with high expectations. But if you are an individual who thrives in such a setting Basingstoke and Deane could be the ideal destination for your talents.
I wish you the very best of luck in your application.
