Dear applicant,

We are delighted that you are considering joining our team at Lambeth.

Our Future, Our Lambeth sets out an ambitious vision for this amazing borough - to become a borough of equity and justice, with neighbourhoods fit for the future, one of the safest boroughs in London and somewhere that everyone can call home.

As someone who grew up in South London under the shadow of inequality, this is a vision that speaks directly to my values and my aspirations for Lambeth. It’s important, ambitious and exciting.

Our newly formed Communities, Governance and Change directorate has been set up to lead delivery, across the council and the borough, of our Lambeth 2030 Plan. It brings together strategy and communications, human resources and organisational development, legal and governance and our proposed new functions in relation to corporate delivery and community partnerships.

We are now recruiting for a number of roles that will be critical to our success:

  • Human Resources and Organisational Development: The roles we are recruiting for in HR are hugely important for us including a new Assistant Director for Recruitment and HR Operations, two new Strategic HR Business Partners and more roles to be confirmed.
  • Corporate Delivery: We are looking for an experienced leader of transformation and change to take up the role of Assistant Director for Corporate Delivery.
  • Equity and Justice: Our new Assistant Director for Equity and Justice will lead the development and delivery of our work to tackle racism and discrimination in our community and to promote equity and justice across our workforce.

It couldn’t be a better time to join us!

You will be working alongside a great team – we are highly driven and ambitious for our council, our residents, and our place and we work together collaboratively and support each other, drawing on our collective strengths, expertise and experience.

I am really looking forward to seeing your application and to working with successful candidates to do great things for this amazing borough in the years to come.

All best wishes

Amy Buxton-Jennings
