Who we are looking for?
We are looking for capable individuals with the enthusiasm, ambition and skills to deliver a Green recovery and tackle the Climate Emergency. These are unique positions which will have great influence over delivering the innovative demonstrator projects that feature as part of the programme. With the innovation in mind, you may not be able to demonstrate that you have ‘done this before’, so we are looking for individuals who have the capability, understanding and potential to make our programme a success. However, as a subject matter expert you will likely be able to demonstrate as a leader in the environment field with a strong track record of delivering transformative environmental change.
Additionally, we have connected our programmes to our values:
Lead with Heart
You love Hounslow and want to make a positive difference to its residents and communities. You might already be involved in local projects and community initiatives within or outside of the London Borough of Hounslow. You like to learn and have already sought out information about One Hounslow. You are curious about what needs to be achieved and excited about the possibilities for the future.
You’re brimming with ideas for how to make things happen for the better in Hounslow. You’re ambitious and will put your hands up for opportunities that help you to develop. Change is your bag – you like to be challenged, to learn and develop and bring a fresh approach to each opportunity.
Pass on the power
You’re comfortable with complexity and can see the big picture. You are motivated by outcomes for the organisation, not personal glory. You know how to make things happen for the common good, without always directing or managing delivery.
Harness the Mix
You’re a people person. You like to collaborate, but know when to lead. You understand how to get people to work together to make things happen. You are clear and honest in your communications and can challenge, encourage and enthuse. You know about working in an Agile way, or are keen to learn and understand how Agile could help you work collaboratively to achieve our goals.
Be a rock
You know how to make things happen. You’ve delivered positive outcomes for the borough or its partners already and know how to measure success. You want to make a difference and be responsible for the delivery of successes and the management of the challenges that come with this.
