Make a great borough even better

Ealing has vibrant town centres, superb parks and open spaces, and diverse and growing communities. However, there’s always room for improvement and we’ve got some exciting opportunities. 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. At its heart, Future Ealing has three priorities: Good, genuinely affordable homes; opportunities and living incomes; Ealing is a great place – and you’ll make it even better. 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.

As Assistant Director for Surveying & Compliance Services, you’ll be right at the heart of our plans. Working in an ever-changing market, you’ll manage Building Control; Surveying; Dangerous Structure; Repairs & Adaptions; Home Improvement; Local Land Charges; and Housing Safety Compliance services. You’ll be responsible for making sure that social housing meets the highest standards. Plus, you’ll be driving the delivery of some key service projects.

By providing excellent outcomes across a diverse range of services, the role will help deliver the Place vision: To foster everyone’s ability to live fulfilling lives in the ways that they choose: through the long-term stewardship of the borough’s environment & economy and by connecting people to the strengths in our communities and to each other.

It is imperative that you can drive performance and deliver improvement as a trusted, collaborative leader. You’ll ensure robust financial management, give high-level advice, develop policies and inspire terrific performance from your diverse team. You’ll also champion our ‘One Council’ approach, with seamless co-operation and equality. We’re also looking for someone who will be encouraging diverse talent, you’ll support and inspire your team to give their all.

To win the confidence of colleagues and partners, you’ll bring experience in building control and compliance, plus knowledge of disabled grants and land charges. Both private and public-sector backgrounds are welcome and commercial thinking is valued. But what really matters is the ability to work closely with partners and foster an open, inclusive environment.
