Waltham Forest, at the heart of East London, is one of the fastest growing areas of the capital with significant areas of development potential, providing an attractive offer to investors, developers and businesses alike. These unprecedented levels of growth have led to significant increases in the number of jobs and businesses being created in the borough. We want to capitalise on the opportunities created by this growth to improve the quality of life for all residents in the borough. This vision is outlined in our Economic Growth Strategy.

This post will have a key responsibility for coordinating activity under our ‘Think Work’ delivery plan with a focus on Construction and Built Environment, which is one of our key growth sectors. This workstream aims to ensure that local people have the skills and ability to benefit from the opportunities emerging as a result of regeneration and to access high quality employment in order to achieve one of our corporate priorities; to improve residents’ life chances.

The post will have responsibility for overseeing the launch of our Advanced TEC Centre, setting up governance structures, maintaining accountability and providing support to develop a curriculum of cutting edge building technology education and training led by the intelligence provided via our relationships with developers and their supply chain.

We are seeking an energetic and experienced regeneration or economic development project manager to join the Employment Business and Skills Service to support the delivery of our ambitions and deliver key employment projects. We are particularly interested in people who may have special interest or experience in developing employment programmes in key growth sectors, working with developers, employers and through procurement and social value processes to unlock employment and training opportunities for local people.
