Job Details

There is no better time to join Enfield Council.

Salary: £46,791 up to £69,850 (This comprises of a salary of £46,791 to £59,850 and a Market Factor Suppliment up to £10,000)

Our flagship regeneration programme is Meridian Water, the £7 billion regeneration of an 85- hectare site; our delivery approach is without precedent – the Council has taken control and will act as Master Developer for the site. 37 hectares of land have been acquired, planning obtained and the developer selected for the first 725 homes, our new station opened in June and we are currently procuring the developer for our next phase of development. A planning application has been submitted for the next 2,300 homes and we are also developing our meanwhile uses which recently saw the Field Day festival hosted on the site.

We require a dynamic, ambitious and experienced regeneration manager with rail experience to join our team to drive forwards the next phase of rail improvements unlocking the potential of the site through a step change in accessibility.

The role requires a broad range of skills and experience, with the aptitude to be flexible and adapt priorities in line with changing circumstances and need. The Council is particularly interested in candidates who have the experience and vision to drive forward an ambitious and innovative body of work.

The new Meridian Water Station was opened officially on 3rd June. This iconic station is London’s newest. We have successfully applied for additional funding to put in a 4th track to enable 6-8 trains per hour to serve the station. The successful candidate will lead on preparing the business case and overseeing the delivery of circa £40m of new rail infrastructure.

This is not your normal council job – we work at a fast pace, with a dynamic and a diverse team. If you have the right combination of skills and ambition, this is the place to be.

The role involves managing projects, budgets, stakeholders, staff and representing the Council’s aspirations for Meridian Water. We are looking for candidates who can maintain a commercial outlook within a local government context and those with a track record of successful delivery.
