Lead the united borough of Brent

Ours is a borough like no other. A place where vibrant, contrasting cultures shine. Where there’s the chance to transform the landscape for our communities. A borough that strives towards a vision of culture, innovation, empathy, and shared prosperity, by standing together as one. Here, diversity is seen as a strength – and we’ve placed it at the heart of our ambitious Borough Plan.

As Head of Revenues & Debt, you’ll develop and manage our Revenue Services which have recently been brought back in house. Through expert leadership you will ensure all these services work more corporately to benefit the council. With responsibility for collecting £141m in Council Tax and a range of debt for other services, you’ll be in charge of a key area with around 100 staff. You’ll provide strategic direction, planning, governance and budget management, while looking after stakeholders and building partnerships. You’ll also manage all relevant outsourced services, meaning you will need to be strong on contract management.

An experienced senior manager, you’ll already have strong knowledge of Council Tax and Debt Recovery and will know how to ensure best practice in these areas. You’re also adept at delivering customer-focused services and improvements through complex change programmes. Resilient and able to manage people, processes and performance, you’ll bring a track record of achievement and a gift for collaborative working.

Ready to join a council that expects high standards of integrity and professionalism? If so, we’ll give you the chance to change an extraordinary piece of London for the better.
