ROLES IN PROPERTY AND DELIVERY
There is a real buzz about our corner of London. Our distinctive culture-led approach to economic growth and regeneration is driving one of the fastest-growing local economies in London. We are intensely ambitious for Waltham Forest, investing in the Borough’s future, and creating a legacy that will beneﬁt our residents for years to come.
We aim to be bold in harnessing the power of our unique strengths and assets – our communities, our people, our staff and our heritage. We are growing the delivery team to accelerate our direct £580 million Capital Programme, implementing our plans for new neighbourhoods, delivering 27,000 new homes by 2035 - as set out in our draft Local Plan - and to support the management and development of our commercial estate which is valued at c.£75m.
Whilst COVID-19 has had an impact on all aspects of life. We have adapted at speed to deliver vital services for our businesses and residents during these difficult times. We’ve kept our major construction programmes delivering, whilst maintaining safety and supported businesses to keep trading within our commercial properties.
To support the delivery of our ambitious plans we are looking to recruit to a range of senior roles within our Property and Delivery team, part of the Economic Growth and Housing Delivery Directorate. The roles play a critical part of our response to the challenges faced by COVID-19, the continued transformation of the Council and boosting the local economy.
