About us

THE EXTRAORDINARY STORY OF GIRO’S PERSUASIVE POWERS

 

Environment and City Management in Westminster City Council is a world of extraordinary stories. We love it when our work touches lives.

 

Take Stepping to the Beat, our 3k walk, jog or run for people with learning or physical disabilities or Autism, their families and carers. It’s a life-affirming, music-based event Coreen and Claudia are massively proud of - and they were keen for people to spread the word. So, imagine how thrilled they were when one of our residents, Giro, did just that. Advocating for people with disabilities at a planning meeting for transport in London, he was proudly wearing his event medal. And he decided to use it to encourage others. As he passed it around the room, Giro inspired lots more people with disabilities to get involved. Infectious enthusiasm goes a long way here.

 

The role

As a City Inspector you can make your own powerful contribution to protecting the interests, safety and wellbeing of everyone who lives, works and visits Westminster. In a nutshell, you’ll be responsible for making sure businesses and individuals comply with a range of different legislation and codes of practice. You’ll be carrying out investigations and helping keep our streets safe and free of antisocial behaviour. You can expect endless variety, since Westminster has the largest and most diverse night-time economy of any metropolitan area in Europe. There will be opportunities to learn a wide range of legislation and skills, spanning everything from licensed premises to gambling.

 

You can look forward to plenty of scope for building long-lasting working relationships with all kinds of people in this customer-facing role - from business owners to resident groups and the Metropolitan Police. Excellent customer service is the name of the game. From day to day, you might be resolving complaints or educating others about the impact of their actions. We’ll expect you to identify risks to the public, make quick decisions and use your powers effectively to stop negative behaviours. Our teams are diverse and we’re especially keen to see applications from under-represented groups, such as women and people from the LGBTQ+ community. This will help make sure we do a superb job for all the communities of Westminster. In our culture of openness and integrity, everyone has the chance to be their best.

 

About you

You’ll bring to the role proven experience in a customer-facing role, an aptitude for learning and the ability to build trusted relationships quickly and deescalate conflict. You should have experience of responding to complex complaints from the public and a range of stakeholders. You are used to working in partnership with a range of agencies and professionals. Good IT skills are also important. In some of our City Inspector roles you are expected to work shifts including evenings, nights and weekends.

 

What we offer

Westminster is an amazing place. There are 250,000 diverse residents, over 50,000 vibrant and vital businesses and three-quarters-of-a-million people working here every day.  Our mission is to create city for all. We’re an organisation that wants the very best for our residents: a supportive and safe environment, the chance to grow and learn throughout their lives, to build fantastic careers in world-leading industries, to have access to high-quality, affordable housing and to retire into the community with dignity and pride.

 

We want Westminster to be a place you can make the most of your talents and thrive as an individual. That’s why we’re proud to have won Best Health & Wellbeing Initiative in the 2020/21 Business Culture Awards. By being the best you can be, you’ll help us adapt to the changing needs of our organisation and communities.

 

At Westminster City Council, we are passionate about our aim to be an inclusive workplace for all that reflects the communities we serve, and we believe everyone is valued. We particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented backgrounds, including BAME, LGBTQ+ and those with hidden or visible disabilities. We’re committed to ensuring all our staff – regardless of gender, age, religion, sexuality, ethnicity or disability – can succeed. We value diversity and appreciate that people work in different ways. So, as a Timewise employer we work to provide flexible working arrangements and an empowering environment that enables you to be your best, that is the Westminster Way.
