Thank you for your interest in this exciting opportunity at Rushmoor Borough Council. This is an amazing place to live and work, and I believe now is a great time to join our team.

We have tremendous opportunities to deliver economic growth and the continued regeneration of our town centres, with a number of exciting developments already under way and more in the pipeline. At the same time, we face complex challenges: some within our direct control, others as a result of the wider regional and national context.

Our continued drive for modernisation is something that is in our own hands, and the newly-appointed Chief Executive and Executive Directors are building capacity and confidence within the Council. The Council’s main programmes – Rushmoor 2020 and Regenerating Rushmoor – focus attention and resources on the Council’s priorities, and members of Cabinet have agreed new portfolios. A new Learning and Development Programme for staff has been launched, as well as a new Behaviours Framework that puts the customer first, where innovation is encouraged and challenge is essential.

So all the ingredients are in place to drive the Council forward, and this role, working with colleagues, will be at the heart of Rushmoor’s transformation in coming years. With your leadership and drive, we’ll get there much quicker. Make no mistake: it's a role that is both challenging and demanding, but you will be well-supported by Members and the Senior Team, and your success will only be limited by your own ambition.

Working with like-minded people, in a modern and dynamic environment, we have much to offer you and your career ambition. So come and join us, and play your part in improving the lives of the residents of Rushmoor.

The Council has engaged Solace in Business to support us in making this important appointment and I encourage you to contact Steve Guest, Head of Executive Resourcing, on 020 7976 3311 to discuss the opportunity in more detail.
