This is a rare opportunity to work flexibly across two London Boroughs through our Shared Staffing Arrangement (SSA). Within which you’ll have a senior leadership role in the Environment and Community Services Directorate with high expectations that you will contribute skillfully to the continuous improvement of what we do and how we do it both within that Directorate and in support of the Corporate whole.
