Redbridge is an ambitious, diverse and exciting east-London borough. What we do is driven by changing our relationship with local people to support our vision. As a result, we've developed innovative ways to build our communities and transform our Council.
We are one of the fastest growing parts of the country and the third most diverse London borough. Our communities are attracted by a mixture of excellent schools, relatively affordable housing, high-quality open space and rapid transport connections into the heart of the City.
This is an exciting time to join us here at Redbridge and there are many opportunities to improve the lives of vulnerable people and children.
Our ambition is to create an inclusive, modern organisation with a culture of openness, customer focus and collaboration.
We care for the people who work for us. We want them to feel their days with us are the very best in their careers. We believe that supporting people to grow and achieve is good for everyone.
This post leads our engagement work with our customers and staff and our strategy to invest in development and learning for our workforce.
We are looking for an Engagement and Development Manager to join our People Delivery Team with the following attributes and experience:
- High quality leadership skills and a track record of leading change within a complex organisation.
- Strong understanding of learning and development strategies and methods.
- Breadth of knowledge of engagement and communication techniques.
- An inclusive leadership style and a strong commitment to equality and diversity, as a manager, a colleague, and as a provider of services to our community.
