The Role

Few roles offer the scope, profile and potential of this opportunity. Islington is a high profile borough, with complex and often deeply rooted challenges. And an incredibly rewarding place to work.

 

Chief Executive 
c. £180k


There’s an excellent foundation for our new Chief Executive to build on and a refreshing clarity of focus and direction. We are committed to creating a fairer Islington and it’s important that this ambition resonates with your own core values. We’ve already achieved a lot. To do more it’s important that we can continue to improve how the council operates, establishing better cohesion and consistency across services and ensuring frontline delivery is connected to overall strategic objectives. You’ll help to make this happen.

It’s important that you are solutions-focused, and that you can balance the strategic and operational demands of the role. It’s likely that you are already experienced within an urban setting and that you bring a full appreciation of the dynamics of working within a political setting - working with and through others will be a vital element of the role. 

We want a Chief Executive who can see things through the eyes of residents, ensuring that our work is outcome focused, and our resources effectively targeted to the things that matter most to our community.
