Waltham Forest is a vibrant Borough, rich in culture and diversity, where their residents and businesses recognise Waltham Forest as the best place to live and work in London.
In October 2020 the Council adopted the Public Service Strategy, a new and radical direction for Waltham Forest, setting out how they plan to tackle the immediate challenges faced by residents, businesses and communities through the Covid-19 pandemic. The strategy has been developed through extensive consultation and inspired by the views of their residents. The Public Service Strategy makes the best use of the Borough’s unique strengths and assets – both people and physical – building upon their track record of success which saw them awarded MJ Council of the Year in 2019 and London’s first ever Borough of Culture. The strategy sets out four key priorities, each underpinned by a five-point plan, which shape the Council and everything it does:
Public Service Strategy priorities:
- Connecting people with jobs
- Safe and healthy lives
- Their 15-minute neighbourhood
- Confidence in their future.
These four priorities are at the heart of the capital investment portfolio, which invests more than £524.5m in new homes, improvements to council housing, school places, economic growth and regeneration, transport infrastructure, health and community investments and major corporate property initiatives, supporting the Councils growth strategy in the coming years.
Waltham Forest Council have ambitious and bold plans to improve their housing service delivery and have re-designed their Operations teams to deliver. Supporting WFC residents to live safe and healthy lives is a key element of both the Council’s Public Services Strategy and the Housing Strategy.
The drive by the Housing Assets team turns these strategies into reality by delivering the Housing Strategy 2019/24 – “Enabling the Delivery of Decent, Safe and Sustainable Homes"
Their transformed Housing Assets Service is seeking a number of applicants for the following Key posts below to help make their ambitions a reality. The council can offer an attractive salary and benefits package.
