The council has come a long way over the past few years. We are already winning awards, but our ambition is much greater than being good. We want to become a recognised leader in excellent public service and help improve more lives at a faster rate than ever before. We will achieve that by bringing together our residents, partners and other stakeholders to solve problems and create more opportunities.
We have just established a new data, performance, research and insight function to strengthen our ability to make the best use of the data that we hold so that we make better decisions and target our resources more effectively. Our teams will play a central role in delivering change at pace across the entire council with a focus on digital innovation and partnership working to achieve the best outcomes we can for our residents and businesses.
Our new operating model brings together roles across the council in professional job families. They will benefit from professional leadership and development programmes co-ordinated by our Corporate Strategy and Transformation Service within the Chief Executive's Office.
We would like you to join us on this exciting journey. Bring your skills and expertise to Tower Hamlets to drive our transformation and make a real difference to people's lives in one of the most exciting areas of London.
