There is a real buzz about our corner of London.
As the Mayor of London’s first London Borough of Culture, Waltham Forest is London’s culture hotspot and one of the greenest and fastest growing areas in the capital. With fantastic connectivity, huge investment potential and limitless ambition we are fast becoming well known for economic growth and regeneration credentials.
Over the past few years Waltham Forest has changed drastically as a place; excellent schools, new homes, good culture facilities and investment in our public realm and transport infrastructure. Community entrepreneurship and the increase in creative businesses choosing to set up business here emphasises the sense of fellowship and cohesion that the borough invokes.
Our ambition for Waltham Forest residents is that everyone benefits from ‘Good Growth’ and better life chances.
Our new Economic Growth and Housing Delivery Directorate is at the heart of delivering the Council’s ambitions for growth, both directly and indirectly, through our plans, services and, most importantly, our focus on delivery.
We aim to be bold and radical in harnessing the power of our unique strengths and assets – our communities, our people, our businesses and our heritage.
An exciting opportunity has arisen within the council’s employment team, which sits within the Employment, Business and Skills directorate. We are seeking a highly motivated and capable individual to join our Employment Team to support the delivery and activity of our Jobs Brokerage.
The ideal candidate will have a strong background in employment, regeneration and economic development. You will have a proven track record in working on successful employment projects, including stakeholder engagement activities, project development and delivery.
In this role, the successful candidate will manage a team of Job Brokerage Officers to deliver a set of outcomes and objectives, working with residents to support them into sustainable employment. Experience of working on funded programmes including ESF, GLA and ESFA would be welcome.
You will be a confident communicator, with good problem solving skills and the ability to find creative solutions when faced with issues and challenges. You will have good written skills as you will be regularly asked to write reports, briefings and prepare presentations for senior managers and elected members.
