It's a time of change and opportunity within Bexley. We’re reviewing key service areas to make more of our strengths and identify opportunities for improvement, and you’ll be encouraged to bring a discerning professional eye to this role’s portfolio. We already know that we are performing well in many areas, and maintaining these achievements will be vital.
Our position on the edge of London, with easy access to both the city and the countryside, make us a destination of choice for many people. Supporting sustainable growth within the Borough is a priority. We want to encourage inward investment, particularly in infrastructure, to help us create new jobs and much-needed affordable housing. With the appropriate infrastructure we currently estimate that we can deliver up to 31,500 new homes and 17,500 net new jobs across the Borough by 2050.
Our achievements are founded on the commitment and talent of our staff. As a senior manager our new Deputy Director will have a vital leadership role to play: setting high expectations, backed up by the right support and structures, to deliver the best for the people of Bexley.
We want to attract people who are passionate about what they do; excited by the prospect of leading transformation; and ready to expand and diversify their own knowledge and experience. It’s an opportunity for talented individuals to establish their leadership credentials in an organisation with a good track record, and an ambition to do more.
