As an alliance of seven West London boroughs, home to around two million people with a rich diversity and with a GVA of £73bn, we work successfully together on a range of key strategic work programmes to deliver improvements and efficiencies for all of our residents. With 20 years’ experience of partnership working, the West London Alliance (WLA) is committed to an enduring programme of collaboration and innovation to improve outcomes for West London.

We work closely with public, private and voluntary sector partners to shape our priorities and drive inclusive growth, reduced costs and public service reform. We have developed a strong track record through our approach to joint working and are looking for a Director to identify, seize and secure further opportunities for the Alliance. Working with Leaders and Chief Executives of the Councils, you will be expected to provide expert policy and strategic advice to provide real benefit to West London.

In order to successfully take on this key role you will need to clearly demonstrate your strong partnership, senior leadership skills, your acute understanding of local government, and an excellent delivery track record. This should be supported by an ability to lead and manage a wide range of significant cross cutting programmes where an ability to influence through a systems leadership approach is a must.

If you believe that you have the breadth of skills and experience to bring to this challenging but exciting role, we look forward to hearing from you.
