A message from the Corporate Director
I am delighted you are interested in working at Harrow Council and I hope you will find the information on this site of interest and that you are encouraged to join us at this critical time in our improvement journey.
Harrow is a high performing council. We have made great strides in recent years. However, there is still more that we want to achieve; and we need help and new ideas.
Environmental services play a very important role in the quality of life in Harrow. Residents consistently tell us that keeping the borough clean, green and safe is their top priority. In addition to high recycling levels, our innovative partnership with the Police keeps crime low and has delivered many exciting initiatives. But we want to get even better.
Regeneration is high on our agenda. Our high-profile £1billion regeneration programme combined with our target to achieve 3,000 new jobs and 2,800 new units of housing in the Heart of Harrow is an exciting, once in a generation opportunity to improve Harrow for the better.
But all of our work has to be underpinned by a strong ethos of engaging and involving our residents in our decision-making process. In this challenging financial climate, it is vital that residents get to have their say on the big decisions.
I am looking for three ambitious and energetic people to join the team who can help me deliver on our ambitious agenda for the future. As well as your professional expertise I am particularly interested in your leadership approach and track record of managing change and creating successful relationships with staff, partners and stakeholders.
If you want any further information please do not hesitate to contact our advising consultants at GatenbySanderson.
I really look forward to receiving your application.
