Welcome to the Tower Hamlets recruitment website for the post of Chief Executive. From here, you will be able to access information on the role along with information about the community we serve and the ambitious plans we have to improve their quality of life. You will get a further sense of this from the key messages from the Mayor and Conservative Group Leader which are attached.

Tower Hamlets is an interesting and exciting environment in which to operate. We are a fast paced, fast growing and changing borough. The economy is thriving, more homes are being built here than anywhere else in the country, more and more people want to live here, and large-scale and ambitious regeneration and infrastructure projects continue to bring fresh opportunities. We still face challenges. We have a fast growing population and this scale of growth impacts across all services. This is one of the cross-cutting priorities to which you would bring innovative leadership.

If you strive for a sense of achievement there are a wealth of opportunities to demonstrate how you can bring sustainable leadership to the Council. You will lead the Council out of direction and also steer the Council through the challenge of continuing to deliver excellent services despite the reduction in Central Government funding. This means taking full advantage of the opportunities presented by large regeneration projects to provide benefits to our community.

It goes without saying that this is a demanding position but it will also be hugely rewarding and Tower Hamlets is a great place to work.
