London’s growth offers more challenges and opportunities than ever for lead Planning roles, so imagine what it’s like working across not one but two major Boroughs. As the jointly employed Assistant Director responsible for Planning & Transport Strategy, you’ll be doing exactly that. You’ll be serving over 500,000 residents and thousands of businesses across an area that stretches from the Green Belt at London’s edge to the new American Embassy close to its heart. It’s a chance to work on everything from the protection of Richmond’s rich built heritage through to the largest regeneration site in the country at Battersea and Nine Elms in Wandsworth.
‘We’re delighted to have been able to uncover and shine a light on these places through the work with our Heritage Action Zone partners.’
You will manage the delivery of commissioning, quality assurance and contract management across the Community & Housing department.

Managing the delivery of frameworks and other such buying solutions for the department, in line with council standing orders and EU procurement regulations, you will be responsible for delivering commissioning legislation and guidance as set out in the Care Act.
