Are you looking to make a difference in Adult Social Care? Brent Council presents an opportunity to work in the Commissioning Residential and Nursing Team. 

Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.

The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.

Brent Council’s wholly owned housing company, i4B, has negotiated the purchase of a brand new apartment block in Wembley Park which will provide much-needed affordable accommodation for key workers across the borough and beyond. The block will be used to retain and recruit key workers in London. If you are successful in applying role this role, you will have the opportunity to move into one of the apartments. More information on the apartments can be found at:
