Two years after the Grenfell tragedy we are changing our whole culture to put the needs of communities first and better engage with our residents, especially those who live in more deprived parts of the borough. We are now reorganising our senior team to look at creative and imaginative ways of generating more social and affordable housing and maximising benefits for all of our communities.

Reporting to the Chief Executive, you will lead a new corporate programme management office to coordinate and drive organisational change across the whole Council. Programme management skills will be as important as the ability to support the political leadership of the Council. Your leadership of the Communications Service will ensure you have a key role at the heart of the organisation, ensuring our strategies and work programmes are fully aligned across the Council.
