The Role

Salary - Up to £127,000.

When you work for Waltham Forest, you’ll join one of London’s most diverse boroughs, championing the needs and perspectives of local businesses, council members and communities. We won Council of the Year in 2019, and we’re dedicated to building on this success with a new Corporate Director of People.

This role is vital in supporting our Chief Executive and Leadership Team, as you will provide strategic direction on all people and organisational development, equalities, diversity and inclusion activity and business support initiatives.

We’re looking for someone politically astute, who’s committed to our vision of positive change for the borough. You’ll be educated to degree level, and have CIPD accreditation, or an equivalent qualification. You might have previous council, central government or NHS experience, or even a more corporate background.
