Our Future Ealing plan has been transforming the way that the council delivers local services to ensure their sustainability and to focus our efforts and resources where they can have the most positive impact.

We want Ealing to be a place where people live fulfilling lives. A place where services and surroundings enhance every resident’s world. For that, we want leaders with the skill, drive and inspiration to bring improvement through innovation.

It’s all about bringing improvements and boosting performance as a trusted, collaborative leader. You’ll ensure robust financial management, give high-level advice and get projects delivered. You’ll also champion our ‘One Council’ approach, with seamless co-operation.
