"This is an incredible opportunity to lead the Finance Department and take on the responsibility of Deputy S151. You will inspire a team that has been transformed to align with the direction of the organisation and help it reach its full potential."

Maria G. Christofi, Corporate Director of Resources

Welcome

I am pleased that you are interested in joining Redbridge Council and considering applying for our Operational Director of Finance (Deputy S151 Officer) role.

A few facts about us. We have been named as the sixth most productive Council in the country and ranked top for Adult Social Care. The fastest growing and most diverse borough in London, we have kickstarted the largest programme of regeneration and housebuilding Redbridge has ever seen. We can also boast one of the best living environments in the capital.

This is an incredible opportunity to lead the Finance Department and take on the responsibility of Deputy S151. You will inspire a team that has been transformed to align with the direction of the organisation and help it reach its full potential. This will involve nurturing talent to be innovative, ambitious and, of course, continuing the robust financial management work that underpins our approach.

You will need to be energetic, have a positive attitude, be excited to effect change and work at pace. I am coming up to my 3-year anniversary working at Redbridge and have already seen huge achievements being made across the Council and specifically in financial resilience and sustainability e.g. balancing the budget in a sustainable way without the use of reserves.

We put our residents at the centre of everything that we do, because we want to make a difference to their lives. If you are interested in working for an up and coming Council that is fiercely ambitious and really cares about its residents - and are prepared to challenge yourself and deliver excellence - then this is the place for you!

Kind regards

Maria G. Christofi
