Is this the career springboard you've been looking for? Now is the time to take the leap!

A fantastic opportunity to be at the forefront of strategy development, this role is so much more than just the core work of a policy team. As the Senior Policy Officer you will play a key role in managing an outward facing team that works right across the organisation, with a range of different partners in order to achieve the best results for residents and communities?

Working within the Chief Executive's Service, no day is the same. You will have a leading role in taking forward some of the Council's highest profile projects such as Andover Vision, Romsey Future and the development of the next Corporate Plan. You will work closely with the Policy Manager, Senior Managers and Councillors across a range of subject areas and have the opportunity to develop your management experience managing a small team of policy officers.

You will be joining a Council which has a growing national reputation and was a finalist in last year's MJ Awards - Local Authority of the Year category. We have a track record of developing talent and enabling people to grow as a result of gaining experiences and insights beyond the core work. This post will really suit someone who is ambitious, keen to develop their experience and who enjoys making things happen!

Test Valley is one of the most beautiful parts of the country to live and work in. With the post being based in Andover, it's easily commutable via road and rail networks from Basingstoke, Winchester, Southampton, Salisbury, Newbury and Wiltshire.

Ready to take the leap, then we would love to hear from you!
