Welcome to new and potential employees

Welcome from our Chief Executive, Kate Ryan

One of the largest district council areas in the country, New Forest combines the beautiful and varied natural environment of a national park and coastline with thriving market towns.

It's consistently ranked among the most desirable places to live in the country with the park at its heart and the majority of its 170,000 residents located on the periphery.

For us, it's about creating thriving and safe communities and a strong economy, providing homes, and supporting the most vulnerable, responding to the climate and nature emergency, and delivering excellent services that are future proof.

The district will see major changes over the coming years, thanks to some of the south coast's biggest regeneration projects along the waterside.

We have the Solent Freeport which includes Fawley Waterside, one of the south east's largest brownfield developments.

We also deliver homes as a council and work hard to meet the housing challenges in the area.

We recognise that not all our communities are the same and work with our town and parish councils and local partners to better understand and meet the needs of all our residents, including the most vulnerable.

With council commitment and the Leader and myself championing these priorities there's never been a more exciting and transformative time to join us.

At the heart of delivering our priorities is our staff. We aim to be an employer of choice and I firmly believe that having the best staff, who are well-supported, is key to delivering the best outcomes for our residents.

Building on this our transformation programme will invest in our staff, develop the skills and infrastructure we need and modernise our services at pace to be both financially and environmentally sustainable for the future.

We are looking to recruit people passionate about making a difference to our place. We also want you to be inspired by our values.

We provide a supportive environment to develop and deliver and we work hard to earn the respect and trust of our residents. 78% tell us they are satisfied with the way we run things, so if you would like to join a council with a reputation for innovation and proactive working to deliver even better outcomes to strengthen our local communities, we encourage you to learn more about our roles on our jobs website.
