Working in Milton Keynes
Milton Keynes is one of the UK’s fastest growing cities that offers people a great place to live, work and visit, and is home to over 14,000 businesses and over 265,000 residents. In mid-June we published our refreshed Council Plan - our vision is for a more prosperous, green and fair Milton Keynes, as we recover and grow following the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over the coming year we aim to deliver significant regeneration and new house build programmes, reduce child poverty, build new schools, tackle homelessness, review some of our major contracts (such as waste) and much more!
The finance team will be at the centre of many of these key programmes and we are now looking for people to join our team and help support these important pieces of work.
