Senior Project Manager
There is a real buzz about our corner of London. Our distinctive culture-led approach to economic growth and regeneration is driving one of the fastest growing local economies in London. We are intensely ambitious for Waltham Forest, investing in the Borough’s future, and creating a legacy that will beneﬁt our residents for years to come.
We aim to be bold in harnessing the power of our unique strengths and assets – our communities, our people, our staff and our heritage.
We are growing the delivery team to accelerate our £533 million Capital Programme, implementing our plans for new neighbourhoods, delivering 27,000 new homes by 2035 and creating communities that are equal and fair for all residents as part of our 15-Minute Neighbourhood Framework ambitions and the Local Plan.
We have adapted at speed to the current economic climate to deliver vital services for our businesses and residents during these difficult times. We’ve kept our major construction programmes delivering, whilst maintaining a focus on return on investment and maximising social value for our residents.
We have an exciting opportunity to join our Capital Delivery Team within our Property and Delivery Division (shortlisted for LGC’s Large Team of the Year award 2023) as a Senior Project Manager.
