Welcome from Janet Senior, Interim Chief Executive

Dear applicant

Thank you for taking the time to consider applying for this exciting opportunity with Lewisham Council.

As part of the Council’s Executive Management Team, you will be instrumental in leading our Community Services Directorate, delivering a range of complex services directly and in collaboration with both the public and voluntary sector.

With responsibility for Adult Social Care, Public Health, Crime Reduction, Public Safety, Regulatory Services, Culture, Leisure and Community Development, you will be an outstanding individual with significant local government experience of delivering services at a strategic level. You will have the authority and credibility to build collaborative relationships with internal colleagues, politicians, partners and local communities.

As a statutory DASS for Lewisham Council, you will also demonstrate a thorough understanding of the challenges and opportunities for adult social care and the current national policy agenda. We have well established integrated health and social care services so you will need to have an excellent understanding of how integrated services for some of our most vulnerable residents can be further delivered.

In a financially challenging climate, you will have a track record of innovative delivery of effective services, demonstrating an ability to engage and lead others in transforming the way services are delivered to meet changing demands and circumstances.

If you want to be part of delivering an exciting portfolio of services and would like to join our corporate leadership team, we look forward to hearing from you.

Janet Senior

Interim Chief Executive
