Executive Director Growth

London Borough of Barnet
Up to £168,000

Barnet is London’s second largest borough by population, home to 390,000 residents. While the population has grown by 9% over the past decade, the borough is defined by its unique heritage and well established diverse communities. Reflecting this, Barnet Council is committed to ‘caring for people, our places, and the planet’. The council is now looking for a high-powered Director to deliver its exciting growth strategy as part of its long-term plans to make Barnet an even greater place to live, work or study.


Barnet has one of outer London’s most ambitious growth programmes, with major development and regeneration schemes and delivery of 1,000 new affordable homes for our thriving communities by 2026. We work in strong partnership with our developers and communities to ensure growth and development is managed responsibly and improves the lives of all our residents. From Brent Cross Cricklewood to Colindale and Edgware and the myriad of sites in between, this is an outstanding opportunity to play a significant and influential regeneration role.
