Thank you for your interest
in this position.

It’s such an exciting time to join us right now. Lewisham is a fantastic place to live, work and visit - we’ve got ambition, passion and so much potential. We’re on an exciting journey, and as we transform the way we work, we’re committed to providing every Lewisham resident with the best possible services. Our new Director of Law, Governance and Elections will play an important role in our senior leadership team, being the Council’s Monitoring Officer, helping to us to shape our next steps and reporting directly to myself.

It’s our people that make Lewisham so special. We’ve got strong communities and we’re one of the most diverse boroughs in the country. We’re proud to be the UK’s first Borough of Sanctuary, which recognises our values of inclusion and equality. Lewisham is also a cultural hotbed, and we’re excited to be the London Borough of Culture next year.
Of course we face significant challenges too, and we’re looking for an inspirational leader who is passionate about local government to lead and develop our legal, governance and elections services.

The successful candidate will be central in helping us deliver on the findings of our recent Local Democracy Review, including enhancing our openness and transparency, increasing public involvement in Council decisions and promoting effective decision making. In addition, they will work with colleagues in the services to ensure we reflect best practice, and have a modern, agile and customer focus. Our talented elections team will also be preparing for Mayoral and Local elections in May 2022 so the Director will need to support their work too.

If you share our values and believe you have what we’re looking for, I look forward to hearing from you.
