An exciting opportunity has arisen to help deliver improvements to our Borough’s Public Realm. You will be helping our front-line services and local communities work more effectively together by grading the cleanliness of our streets, identifying gaps in our service and coordinating a rapid response and consulting with community groups on how we can improve our caretaker role.

Tower Hamlets is one of the most diverse and exciting boroughs in London. Our busy streets and public spaces provide a wealth of culture, commerce and community for those that live in, work in and visit the borough. These characteristics create unique challenges for our council teams responsible for maintaining acceptable standards of cleanliness, which can leave some high footfall areas under-provisioned outside of the regular, scheduled, activities.

Interested applicants must have a passion for delivering a cleaner, greener and safer Borough - you will want to find ways to stop littering, dumped rubbish, graffiti, stickering and fly posting, as well as have the ability to observe, record, report and follow up on all street and public highway defects. We are looking for self-motivated, enthusiastic and engaging individuals who can demonstrable the ability to communicate with people from all ‘walks of life’ and are capable of having ‘difficult conversations’.

  • Identify, plan and deliver new ways of working with local stakeholders to influence longer term behavioural change and encourage greater council/community partnership
  • Following up on reports, enforcement and user issues in a timely manner, tackling deterioration to the fabric of the Public Realm through wear & tear and antisocial/illegal activities such as, but not limited to, littering, fly-tipping, graffiti, flyposting, and dog fouling.
