Could you lead Woking into the future?

Our current Chief Executive is stepping down after a long and successful tenure. We’re looking for new leadership to move us into the next phase of developing Woking’s exciting future.

‘Inspirational’ is often a word associated with Woking. The borough has influenced artists, writers, musicians and business leaders, who have each gone on to create significant moments that have shaped a future rich in culture, sustainable resources and economic success.

That’s because we’ve nurtured a reputation for getting things done, putting residents first and creating the best sustainable environments and opportunities for people and businesses to thrive in. Exciting developments, such as our award-winning museum and gallery, The Lightbox, and the soon to be completed Victoria Square, which will bring new housing, jobs and business to the heart of Woking, are powerful symbols of growth. Our public realm has never looked more attractive, but we are always looking forward.

As Chief Executive, you’ll lead our council and continue to build excellent relationships with our partners across the region. Your ability to create long-term visions will be balanced with a hunger to move at pace and get things done – to listen to residents, work with elected members, promote pride amongst officers and continue to enhance Woking’s brand and reputation.

To learn more about this exciting opportunity please visit or, for a confidential conversation, call Clare Connor (0161 408 0703) or Greg Hayes (07423 243415).
