A message from the Chief Executive

Dear colleague,

I am really pleased you are interested in working at Harrow Council and I hope you will find the information on this site of interest and it encourages you to apply.

Harrow is a high performing council. We have made great strides in recent years including a positive Peer review and receiving a ‘Good’ rating following a Children’s Ofsted Inspection.  However, there is still more to do and we are far from perfect!

You will lead a broad portfolio of services including Leisure, Housing and Environmental Services.  The latter play a very important role in the quality of life in Harrow. Residents consistently tell us that keeping the borough clean, green and safe is their top priority.  You will thrive on our ambition to deliver cost neutral services and the opportunity to capitalise on our wide ranging commercial successes which range from a Letting Agency, MOT Testing Station, Training Academy and Cookery School as well as new opportunities including a Harrow Housing Company. 

All of our work has to be underpinned by a strong ethos of engaging and involving our residents in our decision-making process. In this challenging financial climate, it is vital that residents get to have their say on the big decisions.

I am looking for someone to join the team who can help take the Council forward and deliver on our ambitious agenda for the future. I am looking for passion, creativity and a drive to succeed and energise the workforce.  As well as your professional expertise I am particularly interested in your leadership approach and track record of managing change and creating successful relationships with partners and stakeholders.

In return I can make you some promises.  You will be constantly challenged and stimulated.  You will be given the freedom to innovate and to get things done.  And you will have an opportunity to influence the way the organisation develops and to make a difference.

If you want any further information please do not hesitate to contact our advising consultants at Gatenby Sanderson.

I really look forward to receiving your application.

Michael Lockwood
Chief Executive
