Dear Candidate,

Thank you for your interest in joining us at Enfield Council.

We are a dynamic local authority driven by a clear vision of how we will transform the borough, address inequality and create a lifetime of opportunities for everyone who lives, works and learns in Enfield.

Our programme is ambitious and reaches across all areas of local authority operation and interest. You can read about our priorities and plans to create a lifetime of opportunities in Enfield.

The Council will continue to take a business-like approach across the whole organisation, ensuring the delivery of value for money services that are provided right first time, every time. We are building a workforce that can work flexibly, is highly motivated and adaptable as our service provision changes.

As Chief Executive, I recognise that recruitment of the right people into the key roles you see detailed here will be pivotal to the achievement of the goals we have set.

The Council needs to work in a smart, coordinated way to maximise the financial resources need to create a fairer Enfield. This is especially true given the additional challenges presented to us by the Covid-19 pandemic and the financial impacts resulting from it.

As our new Council Plan sets out, we want to support the creation of a borough that sustainably reduces inequality and provides opportunity for everyone. I believe we have the right proposals combined with a consistent approach to make this a reality.

The organisational values we seek to embed within our journey of change are a key part of what we want to achieve and resonate with the expectations of our residents.

The roles we are recruiting to are diverse and require credible and expert leadership. We need candidates with track records of success who possess an intrinsic understanding of the environment we are operating in and the challenges that lie ahead.

This local authority is not content to stand still and ‘fire-fight’. We are determined to press on to with our programme of sustainable transformation, making a positive and lasting difference to the lives of everyone who lives, works and learns in Enfield.

If you believe you have what it takes to help us achieve our ambitions and add value to our organisation, I encourage you to apply.

Best wishes

Ian Davis
Chief Executive
Enfield Council
