Director of Economy and Skills
This is an exciting time for Westminster Council and for our residents and businesses. Our new Labour administration has ambitious new plans to build a fairer Westminster that puts our local communities at the heart of everything we do. As Director of Economy and Skills, you’ll play a key role in tackling inequality – leading the Council’s approach to community wealth building and supporting our residents with training and skills to access high value jobs. You will support the administration’s approach to reviving the West End which aims to reduce overreliance on chains, and will lead the strategy to support businesses up and down our diverse high streets and town centres including Harrow Road, Queensway, Edgware Road, and Kilburn Lane. Partnership and collaboration is central to this role – both within and beyond the Council.
Your passion for co-production and working alongside local people will be a critical success factor. We know that our communities are the local experts and want to ensure their aspirations are front and centre when rebuilding our economic powerhouse to work better for all our residents.
