Chief Operating Officer

Basingstoke Together, the Business Improvement District (BID) for Basingstoke Town Centre started work on 1st April 2016. After a successful initiation of the BID our founding Chief Executive has moved on and we are now seeking an inspirational leader to build on our start-up success and steer the BID into the future.

The BID brings together a wide cross section of businesses from national retailers and independent shops to world class cultural facilities and the regional offices of major corporates. The core aim is to cement Basingstoke's position as a key regional destination, ensuring a great visitor experience, and working with key partners to successfully deliver the next stage of the town’s growth and evolution.

Basingstoke Together is now seeking an exceptional candidate with wide ranging experience to lead the BID, to consolidate early successes, and to play a key role in shaping Basingstoke for the future. The post will involve managing a small team and working in partnership with key local stakeholders to achieve the objectives of the BID.

You will need to have at least three years experience of strategic leadership of a business, organisation or partnership and of working with businesses in a town centre environment.

Basingstoke as a place has an exciting growth agenda, and now is a pivotal time for town centre businesses, who are seeking a collaborative and inspiring leader to be part of the success story.
