They say Ashford has some of the clearest and brightest night skies in the South of England.  That sometimes the stars can look close enough to touch.  There's clarity about our aspirations for this incredible Borough too.  And those aspirations are absolutely within reach. 

Uniquely placed and internationally connected, we are already home to some of the fastest growth and most innovative development in the country.  Residents and visitors benefit from outstanding leisure activities and a growing cultural offer, together with a necklace of charming villages and beautiful countryside.  Not only is Ashford a great place for people and for business, it's also a great place to build a career.

We are building a future of economic prosperity and growth, a place of quality housing and thriving town centres. We are actively investing many millions of pounds in key infrastructure, housing and commercial opportunities.

We have brought together our finance, housing and property services into one directorate.  You will explore the opportunities these linkages present in order to maximise investment  income and service delivery.  Your leadership and commercial acumen will generate returns for the Council as well as improving Ashford the Borough.

About you   

To realise our limitless potential, we need to recruit the brightest stars. Are you a commercially focused finance professional with a track record of successful deal making?  Regardless of sector or background you will be an innovator and an achiever.  Come to Ashford and join us in bringing about real and meaningful transformation.
