London Borough of Newham

About us:

We know that many residents are facing challenges. But there are also lots of positive developments going on in the borough - the 2012 Games, the opening of Westfield and thousands of new jobs coming in.


Newham Council is a great place to build a career. We will give you the scope and encouragement to really get on in an exciting and interesting environment where you can learn and develop new skills. Our employees reflect the people they serve in our community.

Newham Dockside, our new headquarters, is a modern air-conditioned office at the heart of the Royal Docks area of Newham.

Most of Newham's back office services have moved from their widespread locations throughout the borough to these new headquarters at the Royal Docks.

Locating staff together in modern, flexible office accommodation enhances integration across services, as well as generating efficiencies from the disposal of ageing, expensive to maintain and dispersed buildings. We will break down the barriers that have prevented us from offering the standard of service that our residents are entitled to.

But this is not just about where we work; it is also about how we work.

To improve the services we offer we also need to explore the way we work. If we can accept that there are better ways of delivering our services through new ways of working then we can begin to move forward with Delivering Excellence.
