With an established arts and cultural hub and unrivalled regeneration, including the Garden Town Otterpool Park, the area is well connected, with London just under an hour away via the High Speed rail link and access to mainland Europe via the Channel Tunnel.

While our modern offices are in the heart of Folkestone, with easy access to transport links, local shops, entertainment facilities and the seafront, we have a flexible working culture that supports and encourages remote working where possible.

The ideal candidate will be part CCAB qualified with extensive experience of providing professional advice to senior managers and Members. You will need to be able to adopt a strategic perspective while overseeing operational delivery, have strong project management skills and the ability to undertake and analyse financial modelling. But above all else, if you’re able to build effective working relationships swiftly, be a team player but with ability to operate on your own initiative, and are excited by our large and challenging agenda, then we want to hear from you.
