Ambitious, welcoming and creative. That’s Eastleigh Borough Council.
Have you got what it takes to be Eastleigh’s next Chief Executive? If you do, then we offer a challenging and exciting opportunity for an exceptional and inspiring individual to lead the staff at our innovative and high achieving organisation. Eastleigh is located at the heart of south Hampshire. We have an enviable and impressive record of completing major projects and initiatives over many years. Our ‘can do’ culture says our job is to fix problems and improve quality of life for our residents. We deliver great District Council services but are so much more than that.
Our achievements include delivery of major capital projects from a new leisure centre to securing the future of the Ageas Bowl, to creating longterm commercial income to protect services from cuts, whilst reducing council tax in real terms for 18 years running, and tackling the housing crisis as the Borough’s leading housing developer.
We do all this with clear ambition to tackle the climate emergency, improve health outcomes and secure our economy with innovative planning, partnership working, great staff and strong leadership. We have strong financial and political stability which means that policies and projects can be seen to fruition – it is a place where ambitions can really be achieved.
We’re looking for an inclusive, authentic and inspirational chief executive committed to the highest standards of public service, who can inspire our dedicated staff and embody our culture and values in their own work. With outstanding commercial acumen that understands how to balance quality with value, you will also have exceptional partnership-building capabilities, underpinned by the ability to get things done.
