Welcome note from Shaun Rogan, the Head of Corporate Strategy

Enfield is a large, diverse outer London Borough which increasingly faces inner London challenges. Enfield Council is a local authority with big ambitions to sustainably transform the borough, reduce inequality and change lives for the better .

Our corporate Policy, Partnerships, Engagement and Communities team is a highly effective and key business support function within the Chief Executive’s directorate that is helping to drive improvement and change within the local authority. We are now seeking to enhance our service offer to help secure additional investment in the borough. We require a dynamic and experienced Bid Manager with a track record of success to help us take our next step forward.

We want someone who can lead by example and draft bids to inspire our organisation and our community partners. We want someone who is a good listener and coach, someone who can help develop capacity and confidence in our borough and someone who is aware of the marketplace they will be operating in and has an eye for a future opportunity to bring funding into the borough.

We hope to recruit a person with the right leadership and drafting skills to deliver the additional income that can sustain neighbourhoods, enhance economic growth and help secure the additional investment in physical and social infrastructure our residents need.

In return we offer a great working environment and a chance for the right person to further enhance their skills and deliver in a role that will make a real and evidenced difference to the lives of over 300,000 people.

If you are interested in taking up the challenge of working with us, you can find out more about us in our Corporate Plan, “Creating a lifetime of opportunities in Enfield” that can be found here: . I hope it helps give you a greater feel for where we are and where we are heading.

We look forward to hearing from you.
