Corporate Projects Officer
About us

Mole Valley lies at the heart of Surrey. The towns of Dorking and Leatherhead are the District’s main centres.

Our purpose built open-plan offices have recently been refurbished. We are located opposite the Sports Centre which offers a swimming pool, sports hall, gym, aerobics studio and café and Dorking Halls, which provides a range of facilities including a café, cinema, theatre and concerts.

We operate a dynamic lively and professional environment and are a very approachable team.

About the role

This is a fantastic opportunity to come and join our small, dynamic, hard working team. We lead on a number of projects and initiatives, which benefit our local communities.

You will play a crucial role within the team, delivering on a diverse portfolio of projects. At present these include, but are not limited to, the delivery of our Car Parking Strategy, Rural Community strategy and a range of Youth initiatives. To deliver these projects, the post holder will have the opportunity to work with colleagues across other services, Members of Council and a wide range of external partners and stakeholders.

The post is based in Dorking, although on occasion you will be required to work throughout the district, with the possibility of the occasional evening meeting and weekend working.

About you

We are looking for a self-motivated and confident person with strong organisational and time management skills, an excellent communicator and with a flexible approach to work demands. You will be able to demonstrate a passion and commitment for making a difference in the community. You will have the ability to quickly establish strong working relationships with colleagues and partners.

We need someone who is able to remain calm under pressure and on occasion, work to tight time lines.

If you enjoy variety, where no two days are the same and working within a small team to ensure we get the job done in a friendly and enthusiastic manner, then this role is for you.
