Our projects are some of the most innovative and exciting in London - we therefore need people who are proactive and creative in the face of a challenge and are motivated by the search for a solution.
We have restructured our Planning service to combine Regeneration, Planning, Economic Development and Housing. The shared service will enable more joined up working between the separate teams and ensure that we are all working towards the same goal - to make our borough the best place to do business in Europe. We have a strong reputation for taking on big projects and are excited for our future.
