There is a real buzz about our corner of London.
Our distinctive culture-led approach to economic growth and regeneration is driving one of the fastest growing local economies in London. We are intensely ambitious for Waltham Forest, investing in the Borough’s future, and creating a legacy that will benefit our residents for years to come.
Our Economic Growth and Housing Delivery Directorate is at the heart of delivering the Council’s ambitions for economic and housing growth, both directly and indirectly, through our plans, services and, most importantly, our focus on delivery.
As Principal Commercial Surveyor, you will help deliver a high quality and professional property advisory service for the division, providing commercial advice on the property aspects of our major strategic projects, linking in with our Regeneration and Planning teams to help shape new development in our key growth areas and taking a lead role in bringing forward development opportunities for the Council.
About Waltham Forest
Just 20 minutes from the City of London and the West End and with over 500 acres of blue and green space including Europe’s largest urban wetland at Walthamstow Wetlands and Epping Forest, “London’s Great Forest”, we are well placed to deliver our ambitions for new neighbourhoods.
Our Economic Growth and Housing Delivery Directorate is responsible for most of the Council’s £550million Capital Programme that is delivering new school places, new homes and affordable housing, community and cultural venues, transport infrastructure, economic growth and regeneration, and new neighbourhoods including a new community as part of the transformation of our iconic Town Hall Campus.
Our values demonstrate our approach as a Council; be radical, make and create, and act with fellowship. You will embody these behaviours, have a compelling track record of success and the proven ability to work collaboratively to deliver our ambitious growth plans and transformational projects.
