We are the largest local authority social landlord in London, managing 55,000 homes lived in by 40% of Southwark’s residents. We are home to over 18,300 businesses including iconic London venues and social enterprises. We have a young, diverse and growing population. And we stand together. At Southwark we’re committed to making our borough just and fair, and taking positive action to tackle inequalities. Our residents and communities are our greatest asset and the passion we have for Southwark is shared by millions of Londoners who enjoy our outstanding cultural offer, use our hospitals and attend our universities.
Our new Strategic Director will share a deep-seated commitment to listening to and working with our communities to deliver change and improve lives. They will listen to and empower our staff and residents to deliver our ambitions and demonstrate what can be achieved when whole communities come together.
Your thoughtful use of the council’s resources will ensure we use every penny effectively to transform areas like Canada Water and Old Kent Road and deliver our promises to residents on jobs, homes and better transport to make Southwark fairer, greener and safer.
