The Role

Chief Executive LB Merton
Competitive salary

A Great Place – Shaping a future Merton

Merton is a high performing and very diverse borough with a strong track record of delivering change across a wide range of services. We are proud of what we have achieved for our communities through strong partnering, strong resource management and cultural transformation but we also realise that there is still more that can be done for our residents to tackle inequality across the borough and create empowered and cohesive communities.

This is an exciting opportunity to rethink how we provide services into the future and how we can shape the borough to create opportunities, bridge inequalities and build resilience and prosperity.

As our new Chief Executive, you will bring high levels of community focus, energy, commercial nous and entrepreneurialism necessary to shape a future Merton. You will possess excellent stakeholder management and strategic partnering capabilities and be politically astute. Your leadership and strong track record of delivery will speak for itself. If you are seeking the opportunity to work with a progressive and ambitious local authority, which places great emphasis on doing what’s right for all its communities, we want to hear from you.
