Executive Recruitment

Welcome

We think Hounslow is extraordinary, it’s one of the largest boroughs in London with one of the most diverse populations on Earth. It is the fulcrum between central London and the suburbs and the axis for our global competitiveness as a City and as a nation. Our economy is one of the largest of any local authority area in the UK and we have a growing, dynamic, entrepreneurial community with excellent schools, wonderful parks and open spaces and world-class, historic attractions and locations. Hounslow is one of the fastest growing places in England, with one of the most diverse and connected communities on the planet.  We are London in one borough and we are the world in one place.

Our ambition is to be an outstanding council that serves an outstanding borough.

As part of our vision to provide modern future-focused services for our residents we moved to new offices, Hounslow House, in the heart of the town centre earlier this year. A move which frees up space to build over 900 new homes on our old site, provides excellent improvements for our staff and residents and supports our ambition to be a greener cleaner borough through increased energy efficiency and reducing our carbon footprint.

We have developed enviably strong working relationships with key partners which has seen us achieve high performing, integrated services across social care and health. We are working with local businesses and partners to create 4,000 apprenticeships to provide jobs and provide training and skills for a new generation of young people.  We are working closely with the Mayor of London to deliver against our ambitious housing targets and support our communities through creating an enhanced sense of place. And we are supporting our businesses and high streets through developing a vibrant night-time economy and creating a destination borough.

This is an excellent time to join Hounslow Council’s leadership team to help us achieve our ambition. We continue to face significant financial challenge, driven by our increasing population, and the impact of ten years of ever reducing resources and increased statutory obligations. We need a new way to respond to these external factors and we will need to fundamentally think how we deliver services in the future.

Both our new roles will have a fundamental responsibility in helping us deliver our public service ethos and achieve our ambition.
