Westminster is an amazing place. The heart of a global capital, home to Parliament and royal palaces, the vibrant West End and thousands of historic buildings. While Westminster is of national and international significance, as importantly it’s home to nearly a quarter of a million people.
We want somebody who can see beyond the bright lights and sights to ensure we maintain our reputation for first class and cost effective services to our residents. That means maintaining the outstanding reputation of our schools, delivering job training to help someone get that start into the work place, delivering 1800 new homes so people have the chance to live in affordable housing.
The Chief Executive we are looking for needs to be as driven by these ambitious challenges as the task of ensuring the West End remains a glamorous magnet for visitors. This is an authority where councillors are firmly at the helm. We now need a truly exceptional Chief Executive to lead our outstanding team of officers and turn our ambitious plans into reality.
You’ll be an experienced leader confident in high profile and complex situations, determined to ensure Westminster remains at the forefront of change and innovation. This is a hugely demanding role in a member-led organisation. Westminster works at pace, so will you.
Your reward will be driving change here in the centre of the capital. And of course the job comes with the package and profile you would expect from the City of Westminster.
