South Kesteven District Council has an ambitious Corporate Strategy and growth plans are at the top of our agenda.  Our number one priority is growing the local economy with the delivery of a multi-million pound strategic investment programme across five broad categories:-

  • Leisure and the visitor economy, retail and markets
  • Public realm and living
  • Gateways and transport
  • And Skills.

We will achieve this goal by focusing on three things, growth, agility and competitiveness.

We are building an organisation with a strong internal culture, within our Corporate Strategy we have a strong vision, a definite set of ideas, ways of doing business and values and behaviours.  We believe that how you behave does matter, therefore, we believe that values such as accountability, flexibility, agility and equity are even more important than skills.  With a strong emphasis on talent, and learning and development we will happily give you opportunities to grow, challenge and develop, if you bring a great attitude to your work.
