If you are applying as a secondment please make sure your current line manager would be supportive of this if you are successful.

Are you an experienced manager with a track record of driving efficiencies and developing strategies? Do you have excellent communication, organisation, and leadership skills? If so, we want to hear from you!

We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Strategy Manager to join our collaborative and innovative Strategy team, which is part of the Infrastructure Business Information, Strategy and Assurance team.

Working at one of the largest councils in the country, you will work with a variety of services and reviewing options for a wide range of assets across the county.

At Kent County Council, we value bravery, curiosity, compassion, and responsibility. We are committed to building a culture that is flexible, agile, curious, compassionate, inclusive, empowering, and externally focused. If you share these values and are passionate about improving the lives of residents in Kent, we encourage you to apply for this exciting opportunity.
