Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
The postholder will provide administrative support service to all aspects of learning and development activities undertaken by the Performance, Insight and improvement Team, particularly in relation to the Adult Social Care Skills Academy, and across collaborative projects where the Team has a lead responsibility.
In addition, the postholder will contribute to the overall governance and process management of the performance, insight and improvement activities that support the delivery of good quality outcomes.
