Go for it.

We think we’re doing well here at Hart District Council. Officially the ‘least deprived local government area in the UK’* (not to mention ‘the best place to live’**), we’ve radically improved our efficiency, outsourced our central services, halved our headcount, cut our expenditure by 25% over the last four years, and been recognized as the most improved council in the South East. Oh, and we’ve maintained the quality and range of our services and improved our performance.

And we’re optimistic about the future too. There’s lots of scope for further efficiencies, and new opportunities and challenges arising every day. We want to embrace the localism agenda, engage with our communities, transform our approach to IT, and secure major improvements in the district’s infrastructure.

This isn’t just about managing the status quo. You’ll optimise new working methods, push the sharing/outsourcing agenda, manage our relocation to new offices, help develop key partnerships and continue to transform the way we work. In return we’ll give you as much responsibility as you can handle, and the chance to prove yourself at senior management. We recognize you’re ambitious, and we’ll help you move your career on.
