Rushmoor is a borough with serious horsepower. Home to Farnborough and Aldershot, we have a long and proud tradition of attracting the very best; this appointment is no exception.
This role will suit a technically-accomplished aspiring leader, who wants to make a lasting difference to the place they serve. Profoundly motivated by our mission – to Listen, Learn, and Deliver Better – you’ll embrace the challenge and the opportunities presented by our plans to transform the borough. You’ll be part of a newly formed management team so there is real impetus for change and a wealth of new ideas to work with. As a qualified accountant, your professional expertise will ensure that these good ideas are founded on sound financial viability and clarity around expected return on investment. With an opportunity to bring a strategic financial focus to regeneration, economic development, housing, and ever-better services, there’s no better place to bring your talents.
In 2017, we agreed our vision for 2025. At the heart of our plan is the ambition to truly become an open and enterprising council. Making that happen requires us to change how we work, so that we can make the best use of what we have by working in new, innovative ways to deliver our priorities for the benefit of the county’s residents and communities.
We will need to focus on solutions rather than problems and in so doing create the right leadership and governance structures that will see our staff and members work more effectively alongside our partners. It also requires a resolute focus on engagement and communication to ensure we are listening, sharing information and genuinely building trust with residents, communities and staff.

‘We need to create a national retrofit programme to deliver our 2050 goals. This will not only help drive demand but allow greater scale to cut the costs per property.’
AXA believe an ‘epidemic of financial anxiety’ amongst renters is fuelling this greater political engagement.
