Croydon Council is undergoing a transformation, ensuring that our services and people put Croydon residents and businesses at the heart of our improvement journey.
Over the next 3 years Croydon will be focusing on the economic recovery of a borough that has great potential for sustainable growth. Working with partners and stakeholders to support resilience, growth and innovation in our economy and providing employment opportunities for our residents we will be working across teams to support investment and employment opportunities All this in order to provide a great place to live, work and play for our rapidly growing population.
Croydon is an exciting place to be if you are a professional who wants to lead change – so we’re looking for an inspirational team player, collaborator and policy leader who shares our passion for Croydon.
Strong partnerships are the foundation for success in this work, as we need to find creative new ways of working together with other agencies, the private sector and funding bodies to deal with the financial challenges ahead; because with huge growth comes increased demand for services.
