Kingston is a vibrant and beautiful place, with a strong track record of delivering change across a wide range of services. Our mixed model of delivery, including several shared services, has served us well so far but we now need to refresh, embed and strengthen our approach so that we can meet the financial challenges through to 2020 and beyond. Strong partnering, strong resource management and cultural transformation will be key to achieving this but, even more important, is our determination to work closely with our communities and neighbourhoods to protect the vulnerable and build resilience and prosperity within the borough. With ambitious housing targets, the need to tackle pockets of inequality and protect the quality of the environment, we will need to work collaboratively with our public and private sector partners to ensure that the borough remains attractive to both residents and businesses.
As Chief Executive, you will need to bring high levels of community focus, energy, commerciality and entrepreneurialism necessary to take us on the next stage of this exciting journey. You will possess excellent stakeholder management and strategic partnering capabilities and be politically astute. Your leadership and strong track record of delivery will speak for itself.
If you are seeking the opportunity to work with a forward-thinking and ambitious local authority, which places great emphasis on doing what’s right for its communities, we want to hear from you.
