We’re determined to make Islington fairer. To create a place where everyone, whatever their background, has the opportunity to reach their potential and enjoy a good quality of life.
We also have an ambitious goal – to be the best council in the country – with every employee clear about the part they play and inspired, focused and supported to give their very best.
We want to build an organisation where employees feel valued, inspired and empowered to help us achieve our goals and provide the best services possible to our residents.
Our values and behaviours
‘Be Islington’ is about setting a clear challenge about what it means to be an Islington employee and sets the standard for every new recruit.
We ask our employees to ‘Be Islington’ – playing their part in working together for a fairer borough and to always be collaborative, be ambitious, be resourceful, and be empowering (‘CARE’).
Islington is an exciting and dynamic part of London experiencing rapid growth and undergoing a significant transformation in its transport environment. Islington Council is committed to creating a greener, healthier borough by making our transport more inclusive and enjoyable for everyone. For many of our residents the lack of secure, accessible and dry cycle parking prevents them from making regular trips by bike. We are working to deliver an ambitious programme of on-street bike hangars to improve conditions for our residents. This post will play a critical role in the delivery of our bike hangar programme, which includes leading both on the installation of bike hangars and the management of the rented spaces.
The Council’s Traffic and Safety plays a key role in creating better neighbourhoods, streets and public spaces to meet the needs of local communities and has won several awards for our ground-breaking work.
The successful candidate will be expected to have:
- Experience of working within a recognised project management framework
- A broad understanding of transport planning policies, principles and issues
- Experience in the delivery of transport or public space projects
- An ability to work collaboratively on a range of projects
- An understanding of and commitment to good customer service management practices
- An ability to use a range of approaches to change behaviour
- An ability to draft funding bids and lobby for investment
- An ability to provide expert advice to elected members, management and less experienced colleagues
The successful candidates must have very good communication skills and be able to work creatively and constructively wit
hin a team, with other parts of the Council and partner organisations. A crucial part of these roles will be an ability to work positively with stakeholders, the local community and elected members to deliver projects in line with the Council’s priorities.
Applicants are encouraged to contact David Shannon on 020 7527 4082 for a confidential discussion about this role prior to applying.
