London Borough of Enfield
Salary circa £175,000

We have big ambitions to invest in Enfield for everyone in the borough and, we have a clear plan in place to make it happen. We’re future proofing our strategies and our resources to deliver for our communities, and that’s where you come in.


As our new executive director and statutory S151 officer, you will provide strategic, empowering leadership across finance, revenue and benefits, digital services and procurement. Just as importantly, you’ll be a driver for change and improvement across the council and play a key advisory role to chief officers, the executive management team, the Leader of the council and Elected Members. This role is more than balancing budgets. This is realising a vision and creating clarity of direction and purpose for Enfield staff right across the organisation and ensuring we work at pace to maintain momentum.
