Our services perform well and we have some areas of outstanding success - most notably Ofsted’s assessment of our Children’s Services in 2018. But we're equally aware of areas of our work where we can improve performance, and are committed to making this happen. We have well-established partnerships in place, which are opening up new models of provision and exciting opportunities for innovation across our services.
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. Each of these senior roles 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.
