Working for Woking

Located in Surrey just 25 minutes from central London, Woking is a small borough with the ambitions of a modern, cosmopolitan city.

For the last three years, Woking has been ranked in the top three locations to live and do business with strong growth prospects. (LSH UK Vitality Indexes 2023, 2022 and 2021)

The borough is already home to many high profile, multi-national organisations including McLaren, Worldwide Wildlife Fund UK, Asahi and Italia Conti Performing Arts Academy.

Transforming our service for a fitter future

We’re going through an intensive period of change from top to bottom, from the back office to the front line. Over the next two years, the pace at which we’re working will be faster than almost anything else in local government.

To make this happen, we’re looking for new team members who are brimming with ideas, resilience, and energy to shape our transformation journey. Above all, meet the needs of our residents and make a difference to their lives.

If you want to make an impact and looking for that career defining moment, you’re looking in the right place. Apply to join us now and be part of our change journey.

Operational and leadership roles

Our operational and leadership roles will be critical in supporting organisational change and how we work with partners.

Woking is proud of its ambitious, collaborative approach and we’re looking for leaders who can build on these foundations, whilst delivering change.

We know that the drivers of trust are integrity, responsiveness, reliability, openness, and fairness. We’re looking for people who can help us put the highest standards in place which give residents confidence.
