At Waltham Forest we are ambitious for our people, our communities and our services

Driven by our sense of Waltham Forest, the place and its people, we constantly develop and evolve. Waltham Forest is London’s first Borough of Culture and 2019 MJ Council of the Year. Our opportunities are real: a new university campus, £300million new shopping centre, 10,000 new homes over the next ten years, re-invigorating a much-loved 950-seat theatre back and a new hospital at Whipps Cross. 

However, we face challenges: 45 per cent of our children live in poverty, tackling the housing crisis and our ethnicity and gender pay gaps, creating an authority as diverse as the people we serve.

We need people that thrive in creating solutions and unlocking potential in all areas. Our Technology Team has transformed the IT experience of customers and staff. We have migrated to cloud services and infrastructure, redefined public web and transactional services, retained control over our core technology and network, and enabled new ways of working for our staff.
