London Borough of Waltham Forest

 

Director of Commercial Estate & Investment

 

Waltham Forest For All

 

There is a real buzz about our corner of London and we are looking to build on our successes and realise the huge potential of our people and the opportunities we face.

As the Mayor of London’s first London Borough of Culture, 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.  Our new Place Directorate is at the heart of delivering the Council’s ambitions for economic and housing growth, both directly and indirectly, through our plans, services and, most importantly, our focus on delivery.  

As Director of Commercial Estate and Investment you will lead the Council’s property estate and asset management functions, securing outstanding financial and social returns from our existing portfolio, developing a pro-active pipeline of acquisitions and shaping and implementing our investment strategy.

 

About Waltham Forest

Just 20 minutes from the City of London and the West End and with over 500 acres of blue and green space including Europe’s largest urban wetland at Walthamstow Wetlands and Epping Forest, “London’s Great Forest”, we are well placed to deliver our ambitions for new neighbourhoods.

We are one of the most diverse areas in the country a vibrant and strong sense of community. An estimated 53% of residents are from a minority ethnic background and around a quarter of residents (26%) are born outside the UK - compared to 35% in London and 14% in the UK as a whole.

 

Our Place Directorate is responsible for most of the Council’s £550million Capital Programme that will deliver new school places, new homes and affordable housing, community and cultural venues, transport infrastructure, economic growth and regeneration, and new neighbourhoods including a new community as part of the transformation of our iconic Town Hall Campus.  Our draft Local Plan Review articulates the aspiration to deliver 10,000 new jobs and 18,000 new homes over the next 10 years with 50 per cent affordable housing that prioritises local residents. Our teams will be responsible for making this happen.

MJ’s Local Authority of the Year 2019, our values demonstrate our approach as a Council; be radical, make and create, and act with fellowship. You will embody these behaviours, have a compelling track record of success and the proven ability to work collaboratively to deliver our ambitious growth plans and transformational projects.

 

About the Role

You will be the lead officer providing strategic direction, leadership, operational management and financial control for the planning, delivery and commercial management of the Council’s property estate, asset management and facilities management functions.

You will lead the development and implementation of an Investment Strategy; you will optimise the use of the Council’s current assets to achieve financial and social return on investment and outcomes and develop a proactive acquisition and disposal pipeline.

We are looking for someone who will work collaboratively and inspire others  to design and deliver dynamic investment and asset management strategies and programmes that support the Council’s regeneration and inclusive growth ambitions and optimise Return on Investment and the value of the corporate estate.

We will look to you to define our capital investment requirements and lead on the development of property maintenance and improvement programmes.

 

About You

We are interested in speaking to candidates from both the commercial and public sectors with a track record of delivery, a passion for public service and improving outcomes for residents along with a relevant qualification, such as RICS.  You will bring leadership experience of effectively shaping and maximising the value of significant property portfolios and expertise in securing appropriate acquisitions along with the skills and motivation to build strong and effective corporate teams.

If you are commercially minded, with a focus on delivery and driving a financial and social return on investment, we want you to join us. We are keen to hear from anyone who meets the job criteria and we firmly believe that diversity produces the best team performance. We are proud of and driven by our Diversity Rationale and aim to have a workforce, at all levels, that reflects the communities we serve.

Our values are at the heart of everything we do and will guide the way we work with each other, our partners and our communities.

This is a central role for someone to make their mark in helping us transform our coastal city and the services we deliver like never before.  

 

Our success however, in common with all cities across the country, masks issues related to poverty, inequality and fairness. This is against a backdrop of ongoing reductions in local government funding, rising demand for our services, and the impact of COVID-19.

 

Working for Brighton & Hove City Council means you’ll be joining one of the largest employers in Sussex and an organisation that’s active in its community and developing its transformative journey so we can continue to do the best for the city. For us, a fairer city with a sustainable future is a:

Head of Integrated SEND

A challenging and rewarding role – leading an integrated SEND agenda that’s key to the ambitions of one of the country’s largest unitary authorities

Salary up to £95k | Buckinghamshire Council (hybrid working)

 

 

The role

Reporting to the Service Director for Education, you will play a vital role in leading an Integrated SEND team, overseeing operational management, financial control, and statutory duties for the service area.

 

Utilising your expertise in SEND legislation and policy, you will lead 3 area SEND teams and a dedicated Educational Psychology service, and will be tasked with providing strategic direction to secure improvements that have already been made whilst developing the team for ongoing success.

 

A recent Ofsted inspection identified multiple strengths and recognised the considerable activity that is happening as part of Buckinghamshire Council’s focused SEND improvement programme.

 

Objectives will include:

 

• Ensuring the highest levels of quality, consistently.

• Developing a team that is forward-looking and proactive, with a culture that is confident, robust, and resilient.

• Working with partners to improve the provision of health services for children and young people with SEND.

• Managing a £140m capital expansion programme over the next 5 years to ensure that as many local children as possible receive high-quality education within Buckinghamshire.

 

 

Overview

Buckinghamshire is a successful, growing place with fantastic natural assets, a highly productive economy and many resourceful and thriving communities. However, we are far from complacent and our new and ambitious unitary authority is well placed to tackle the challenges associated with growth, an aging population, climate change and inequalities in both opportunities and outcomes – particularly for our children and young people.

 

Children’s Services is on an improvement journey and as our very recent Ofsted report shows, we have continued to improve despite the pressures of the pandemic and have built solid foundations for future success. Relationships with partners are strong and our collective response to the pandemic has strengthened and deepened our work together.

 

We have a big, ambitious agenda for Buckinghamshire, and our teams work collaboratively and at pace to make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people across the county. As the new Head of Service, ISEND, you’ll play a key role in helping us to achieve our ambitions.

 

 

Candidates

This exciting role offers real career development potential for an experienced SEND or educational psychology professional who is seeking an opportunity to show what they are capable of, and have a real impact on the lives of children and young people with special education needs and disabilities.

 

Working with the parent community as well as colleague in health, children’s social care, and education, and reporting into an independent improvement board and the DfE, excellent collaborative partnership-working and communication skills will be required for success.

 

A candidate briefing pack will be available soon.

Harrow is a diverse borough, and we want a leadership team to match. As such, we’re open to a range of unique talent and experiences. If you have the right attitude, leadership potential and transferable skills then we want to hear from you.

 

Harrow represents all that’s good about outer London life – but it could be even better. We’re determined to create a thriving, modern, inclusive and vibrant borough that residents can be proud of. Our ambitious plans have put affordable, high-quality homes; jobs and investment; and cleaner, greener Neighbourhoods at the top of the agenda. Now, we need inspirational leaders to lead the way – and build a better Harrow.

 

As Director of Regeneration, you’ll help us achieve our regeneration goals. It means setting strategic direction and providing the vision to guide our plans. Our £multi-million programme covers everything from new schools and homes to new employment spaces – and requires expert co-ordination. You’ll lead and marshal the public sector, private sector and community, and oversee progress through the Harrow Strategic Development Partnership (HSDP).

 

To ensure our teams are delivering at their best, you’ll champion service transformation, steer change programmes and drive exciting improvements.

Plus, you’re aware of relevant legislation, regulations and industry standards.

 

While this is a senior local government role, we’re keen to hear from people with experience or looking to step up in their career as well as those with transferable experience currently working in other sectors. Your leadership, attitude and focus on service are what’s important. We’re committed to development here at Harrow, so we’ll support you to be successful if you bring the right attitude.

It’s a chance to take charge of key areas including street cleansing and waste services; waste strategy; transport strategy; traffic and highways infrastructure maintenance; environmental health; private sector housing; licensing and enforcement; parking operation; and commercial services.

 

However, to achieve our goals, you’ll also need to lead strategic direction and provide the vision to make plans happen. To drive improvements – that put customers front and centre – you’ll need to champion service transformation, steer change programmes and make the most of technology.

 

At this level, you’ll be responsible for managing finances, honing performance and developing Environmental Services via smart commercial thinking. Strong strategic partnerships will play a big part and you’ll foster collaboration.

 

It all adds up to a hugely exciting role at the heart of our Place Directorate Management team. And for this kind of challenge, we need a very special leader.  

 

We’re looking for a resilient and determined professional who’s an excellent communicator. Enthusiastic and politically sharp, you’ll bring a proven track record in Environmental Services management (or equivalent) and strategic thinking. Thanks to this background, you can manage complex, inter-related services, achieve transformation and co-design in consultation with residents. Plus, you’re aware of relevant legislation, regulations and industry standards.  

 

While this is a senior local government role, we’re keen to hear from people with experience or looking to step up in their career as well as those with transferable experience currently working in other sectors. Your leadership, attitude and focus on service are what’s important. We’re committed to development here at Harrow so we’ll support you to be successful if you bring the right attitude. Support those stepping up or transferring from other sectors.

 

If you also have the credibility to build partnerships and get the best out of teams, now’s the time to join us. Create the best-ever Harrow.
