Introduction from Rokhsana Fiaz - The Mayor of Newham

Dear Candidate,

Re: Head of The Mayor's Office.

This is a very exciting time in Newham and we are grateful that you have taken the time and trouble to look into the opportunity to become one of our Director’s and Public Health Consultants in the most dynamic borough in England.

Newham is one of the youngest and most diverse boroughs in England and Wales. Host to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and home to the largest urban regeneration site in Europe it boasts a vibrant and thriving culture and community.   Located within the historic East End of London, the borough has one of the most diverse populations to inhabit a single geographical area, with all ages, races and beliefs speaking at least 100 different languages.  

With a new, ambitious Mayor driving a bold new agenda, we are looking for talented individuals who share our commitment to putting people at the heart of everything we do.

We are pursuing ambitious plans for transformation; to face the challenge of balancing the need to make large-scale efficiencies with our plans for modernisation, whilst working through what are an ever changing landscape, and the delivery of service excellence.  

The complexity of delivering success in all three disciplines through integrated provision and partnership arrangements will take considerable skill and leadership capability. We are looking for individuals who will provide the expertise and enthusiasm to help us advance our ambitious agenda.  

All roles will work closely with Members and the Newham Strategic Leadership Team on all aspects of the development and delivery of their various portfolios, together with leadership oversight of a diverse range of staff within the Directorate. 

While it is essential to recognise the scale of the challenge, equally it is essential not to underestimate the opportunities and dynamism within the Council and across its partners.

Please take a look at the further information and please contact us if you wish to discuss the role further. We look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Rokhsana Fiaz
Mayor of Newham
