Lead change in Havering.

Havering is on an exciting journey of transformation as we modernise our services for residents and improve the quality of the external environment, as well as deliver our hugely ambitious new build regeneration programme to provide much needed homes for the borough’s residents. We now need an exceptional senior leader to further our ambitions for a cleaner, safer, prouder borough that works together with our residents.

As Director of Neighbourhoods, you will provide pivotal strategic leadership and direction for the Council’s full range of regulatory and non-regulatory services across the areas of Public Realm, Highways, Traffic and Parking, Planning, Transport and Registration, and Bereavement. With a passion for public service and putting customers at the heart of all you do, you will develop strong links with residents, building effective platforms to create a real impact amongst our communities.

With a proven track record of leading change within an environmental services context, you will inspire Council-wide collaboration and deliver truly excellent services, ensuring that our borough remains a safe, well connected and enjoyable place to live and work.
