Revolutionising our relationship with stuff

ReLondon is the London Waste and Recycling Board, renamed - a partnership of the Mayor of London and London’s boroughs to improve waste and resource management in the capital and accelerate our transition to a low carbon circular city. Our mission is to make London a global leader in sustainable ways to live, work and prosper by revolutionising our relationship with stuff and helping London waste less and reuse, repair, share and recycle more.

ReLondon is on a journey of growth and development and our 2020-2025 Business Plan sets out our work programme for the next five years. To achieve our goals and ambitions we have created a new role for a Director of Operations and Governance.  

Reporting to the Chief Executive, the role of Director of Operations and Governance is a pivotal one within ReLondon. The post holder will manage and shape our resources – staff, working practices and services - enabling us to be professional and ‘future-fit’ as we grow and evolve as an organisation to realise our aspirations to reduce consumption-based emissions of CO2 and making London the world’s leading city for circular economy.  You will also be our principal advisor to the Board and the organisation as a whole on all aspects of corporate governance.

With a track record of working with boards and of leading and shaping multi-functional teams the successful candidate will join us as a key member of our leadership team at a crucial time in our development. We are looking for someone who is thorough yet adaptable, committed to high standards and an active team player, politically astute and able to communicate at all levels, but most importantly someone who shares our values and vision.
