Leadership in Hackney

Join Hackney’s leadership team

“The last two years have seen our certainties overturned; the way we work, how we interact with our residents and colleagues, how we provide services, how our local economies function. The pandemic has given us new challenges, but more than anything, it has intensified our existing challenges, and our focus on them. We are really concerned about the way that Covid has impacted on our communities and worsened inequalities. This is why we have been very quick to reset our corporate priorities, thinking about how we rebuild a better Hackney that is for all our diverse communities.

Brick wall with a rainbowBefore Covid, we were working to make Hackney fairer, safer and more sustainable.  Now those things are even more important, and more urgent.  We are determined that out of this uniquely challenging set of circumstances, we will renew ourselves as an organisation, and our commitment to our underpinning values. We will rebuild a better Hackney than the one we saw at the start of the year.

The people who apply for senior level roles in the organisation, will be vital to helping us overcome these new challenges, and meet our ambitious goals, together as one team. We are looking for exceptional individuals with creativity and vision, with a track record in leadership, and who can share our passion and commitment for Hackney, and for building a fairer future for everyone who lives here. We look forward to welcoming you to Hackney Council.”

We are driven by recruiting the best and people to deliver for the diverse communities of Hackney. We are underrepresented by Black and Asian and Minority Ethnic people, and disabled people, at senior levels so we particularly welcome applications from these groups, so we have the best and widest pool to choose the best from
