Welcome Letter

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for your interest in the Service Head posts. These are all high profile roles in a leading council, in which you will be making a significant difference to the organisation, its people and our residents.

Tower Hamlets is a fast-paced, fast-growing and changing borough. We have gone through a challenging time, but our Mayor, members and senior management team are committed to our transparency agenda, which places accountability at the heart of decision making across the local authority.

The borough's economy is thriving; more homes are being built here than anywhere else in the country and our schools are recognised as some of the nation's best. Our Annual Residents' Survey consistently says that the council is doing a great job in delivering services to residents. We have an excellent story to tell.

We are looking for individuals to support the ambitious growth and development agenda for the borough through leadership and strategic direction to the Council's Corporate Strategy and Equality service, Legal and Democratic Services function and Communications and Marketing service.

You will need to be collaborative in style, able to promote the profile of your service internal and externally, due to the credibility you hold through your track record of success in your chosen area. You will be someone able to build strong relationships and maintain those in place at the Council, successfully leading and motivating your team to do the same.

These are all demanding positions, where you will have the chance to shape the service you lead and play a key role in ensuring they become innovative and high quality services.

I look forward to your application. For an initial discussion contact Andrea Trainer or Mark Mukasa at 020 7399 3990

Yours sincerely,

Melanie Clay
Corporate Director, Law, Probity and Governance
Tower Hamlets Council
