Welcome from our Chief Executive

Dear Applicant

Thank you for your interest in the Corporate Director, Place in Tower Hamlets. You will be joining a Council that is making massive strides towards becoming one of the best places in London to live and work. This post is pivotal to our continued success.

You will have overall responsibility for leading major cross-cutting projects such as the regeneration strategy and delivery, successfully managing the bringing back in house of the waste contract from April 2020, the rolling out of a major programme of neighbourhood renewal and the management of our move to the new Town Hall in Whitechapel in 2022. A key task for you will be to ensure the council maximises the impact of its investments across a number of areas. You will be responsible for wide-ranging service areas such as Housing (including being the client for Tower Hamlets Homes, our ALMO), Energy and Sustainability, Capital Delivery, Asset Management, Growth and Economic Development, Planning and Building Control and the Public Realm.

Our corporate structure is designed to better enable us to deliver the council's priorities, encourage cross council working, transform our services and be more efficient. The job that you are applying for will make a significant contribution towards our future.

You will demonstrate good corporate leadership and take a holistic view to service delivery and partnership working. You will be focused strategically on shaping Place in Tower Hamlets to benefit residents and those who work in and visit our borough and you will be ambitious for the impact that public services can have in making a difference to people's lives.

You will have strong leadership qualities and will work with colleagues but also challenge and stretch them. 

This role offers huge potential for someone who is forward thinking, who is up for the challenge in this busy and demanding role which offers exciting and rewarding opportunities for your career.

If you are interested in being part of our future I look forward to receiving your application.

Yours sincerely

Will Tuckley

Chief Executive
