Job role
Contract Type
Full time

Improving our environment is key to helping to make Islington fairer.


The Role

We are a busy, densely populated place. Space is in short supply – especially open space – so managing it well and using it creatively is vital. Tackling poor air quality, protecting and promoting our parks and open spaces, ensuring the borough is clean and tidy and promoting an inclusive economy are all top priorities for us.

As Corporate Director for Environment and Regeneration you will lead on all these areas. You will also have a critical role in shaping Islington the place – and enabling the council to deliver on its other priorities: from steering the planning decisions that will help us build more genuinely affordable homes and support a more inclusive economy, through to improved community safety.

You’ll bring strengths in project management and a highly developed awareness of leading change, as well as translating corporate objectives into meaningful action on the ground. You’ll need an eye for detail to ensure that day-to-day delivery is on track, but we’ll also want you to continually look to the future, exploring new opportunities and keeping our services on the front foot.

You will share our values and be passionate about helping us shape the Islington of the future.

Closing date: 12th April.
