The Extraordinary Story of Tiffeny’s Powerful Voice
At Westminster City Council, we don’t just listen to the voices and experiences of our residents, we listen to our people too. Tiffeny is a single mum whose young son has ADHD and before joining our team, she never thought she’d find a job that gave her flexibility and freedom to support her son’s needs. As a neurodivergent woman herself, she also never expected to be part of a team that not only supports her needs, but actively celebrates them, where people encourage her to be her true self. That’s what she found here at the City of Westminster
Working as an Engagement Officer within the Corporate Property team means that she gets to meet people from all walks of life within the community supporting the development of positive change, especially being the voice for young people where it matters, in education, training, or employment. Her experiences and her amazing ability to relate to others means that within the first few months of joining our team, she’d already made a huge impact on things like accessibility in the Borough. Tiffeny feels heard and that’s because we know how important it is to listen.
As a Customer Lead in our Corporate Property team, you can make your own powerful contribution.

We are looking for someone with excellent communication and organisation skills. Someone who can improve and develop our existing collaborative processes and create new ones where they see an opportunity for us to be more efficient and joined up.
You’ll need experience of working in a policy and service environment where you’ve been a single point of contact for partners, councillors, agencies, third party organisations and statutory bodies. We want people who know how to build strong working relationships with key stakeholders across the board, understanding their business, providing them with useful analyses and information, and empowering them to take decisions about the future and shape of the service. We aren’t afraid of radical change, and as Customer Lead you’ll need to be comfortable and confident in providing this type of advice to partners when you see a need to do things differently.
