Dear Applicant,

Thank you for your interest in the London Borough of Redbridge. This is an exciting time to be thinking of joining the Council.

Redbridge is an amazing place to live with high performing schools, outstanding green spaces and affordable housing all located only 15 minutes from London Liverpool Street station. We are proud of our vibrant, diverse communities and our residents love the things that make Redbridge special.

Earlier in 2017 we asked five residents to form a Streets Commission and worked with them and resident focus groups to create a strategy – Our Streets, a Strategy for Great Neighbourhoods – which will guide and inform our work in Civic Pride. We will move away from an approach where the Council makes decisions for residents to one where we put residents and communities at the heart of our decision making – involving them and helping them achieve what they want for their community.

This new neighbourhood approach will be based around localities and the structure in Civic Pride enables us to be organised in a way that delivers the very best for our residents.

Whatever role you are interested in, this is an opportunity to join the Council at a critical time; to shape the future, to bring your expertise to work with an existing group of staff who are committed to Redbridge and what it stands for.

You will need to be a team player to succeed, and the drive and determination to deliver an ambitious programme of change at pace. If that’s you, we would love to hear from you.

Good luck with your application.

Caroline Bruce

Corporate Director of Place

London Borough of Redbridge
