At Southwark we’re committed to making our borough more just and fair, and taking positive action to tackle inequalities. Our residents and communities are our greatest asset and together we are moving forward from the Covid pandemic to rebuild our economy, deliver quality, affordable homes, give our young people the best start and create a greener borough to live, work and raise a family.

With a new Leader and Cabinet we’ve refreshed our borough plan and our focus on Southwark Stands Together, the work with Southwark’s communities and the council’s staff to tackle racism, injustice and inequality, underpins all we do.

We are seeking a Head of External Affairs to support the Leader, Cabinet, members and officers across the Council to fully understand and engage with our residents. With responsibility for public affairs and policy, external and internal communications, this is an influential, fast-paced role that works closely with our most senior stakeholders. Your policy and public affairs expertise and communications knowhow will of course be matched by your commitment to equality, our core values and your passion for a fairer society.
