Ambitious for Redbridge

Head of Capital – Regeneration, Property & Planning

The London Borough of Redbridge is changing fast with Crossrail’s imminent arrival fuelling investment in new homes, jobs and local facilities. The Council’s role in this agenda is also developing quickly as we look to play an increasingly prominent part in delivering, enabling and facilitating the investment needed to maximise the benefits of these opportunities for local people.

We are now looking for two senior managers who share our vision and commitment to supporting the development of a modern, vibrant and growing East London community. These roles will be responsible for leading key elements of a programme which is unlike any other. 

Our £120m capital programme, taking in school expansions, affordable housing and regeneration projects, is just the start. In the past month Cabinet has approved the establishment of a £50m Development Company initially charged with delivering its first 350 new homes within three years, established two funds seeking to acquire property as investments and to provide much needed temporary accommodation and signed off ambitious plans to deliver more than 6,000 new homes and 2,000 new jobs as part of the Ilford Town Centre Housing Zone. The ability to maximise the value of our asset base, individually and whilst working with others, and then quickly deliver physical change will be critical to our success. If you can bring capital, development and regeneration skills to match the ambitions of our leading Council, we could be building something very special together.
