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.
Property is a key enabler for the Council, and with changing models of service delivery following the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, there are significant opportunities to help shape the Council’s property estate to ensure high levels of service for our residents and to create a modern estate for the long term. The Property & Delivery division is at the forefront of the work to drive the Council’s recovery from the effects of the pandemic and this role is key to unlocking opportunities.
As a Valuer and Surveyor in the Housing & CPO team, within the Commercial Estate & Investment property service, you will help deliver a high quality and professional Valuation and Asset Management function, leading specifically on the valuation service for our right to buy disposal work, but more widely on housing disposals, acquisitions, strategic advice and on CPO and housing estate regeneration projects.
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.
Winners of MJ’s Council of the Year 2019, 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.
