Royal Greenwich is proud to be a borough synonymous with first class modern services alongside our Maritime history, Greenwich Mean Time and Royal Status. A world heritage site, our communities remain vibrant and diverse and our elected members are ambitious to realise the potential of the borough whilst responding to our financial challenges and a growing population. Growth, progress and innovation are critical but we remain completely focused on ensuring that we meet the needs of our communities by working closely with residents, partners and businesses. Securing the very best outcomes for our children and young people and providing high quality housing remain our top priorities.

We have high expectations of the impact and organisational leadership that our new Chief Executive will inspire across our workforce, partners and other stakeholders. We expect whoever is appointed to strengthen our profile, increase tourism and attract businesses and inward investment whilst ensuring our most vulnerable children and adults are safe and supported and that our public places are safe and enjoyed by our residents.

To be successful, you will need to have a strong strategic grasp, experience of management and governance of a large complex organisation and bring a strong track record of delivering outcomes for communities that have made a
genuine difference.
