Dear Applicant,

At Kingston, we are passionate about our Royal Borough and our communities that make it a great place to live, work, study or visit. Our intention is to be a Council that embraces our rich heritage whilst planning for the future. We are redefining the relationships that we have with our residents, community groups, businesses, voluntary sector and central government agencies. We want to be known as a Council that is an exemplar for citizen engagement with high quality, well designed and sustainable development.

The person who is appointed as the Assistant Director, Strategic Planning and Infrastructure will help to strengthen our profile nationally and internationally whilst ensuring Kingston’s many communities are fully engaged and receive consistently high quality services. The challenge for the new Assistant Director is to shape and inspire an exemplar development management service whilst leading on the delivery of Kingston’s Local Plan. Leading a professional planning service that is central to achieving our growth ambitions, you will be critical to ensuring our key sites deliver optimum benefits for Kingston.

This is a career defining role for the right individual to transform and improve services and provide exemplary strategic leadership to create a world-class built environment and infrastructure in South West London. The successful candidate will work closely with leaders across our organisation, communities and businesses and support our wider corporate priorities.

If you believe you can offer the right mix of planning and delivery experience, influential leadership, drive and innovation during a time of transformational change, we very much look forward to hearing from you.
