Destinations PMO Lead - PO6

Waltham Forest became the Mayor of London’s first-ever London Borough of Culture in 2019. It is home to an abundance of culture, creativity, and enterprise – including the award-winning William Morris Gallery, Vestry House Museum, Fellowship Square and the internationally recognised nature reserve, Walthamstow Wetlands, along with a wide range of ambitious arts, events, and experiences throughout the borough.

As a Destination borough, our ambition is for Waltham Forest to be recognised as the best place to live, work, study, visit and invest in London. Our cultural offer is world class, generating and creating tangible social and economic impact for our local neighbourhoods. We ensure we achieve all of this in a sustainable way by maximising our commercial opportunities and responding effectively to the climate emergency.

We continue to aim high and ensure that Waltham Forest continues to grow as a Destination borough, engaging residents, enabling creativity, celebrating our individuality, and utilising our resources to ensure viability, impact, and legacy -  a place where diversity flourishes. We are working with local creative enterprises to curate an exciting and engaging cultural offer and destinations programme, building on our rich heritage from across the borough to bring together our residents, communities, and visitors to share and participate in an array of experiences.

We are currently looking for skilled and passionate individuals to join us to establish Waltham Forest as a platform for local enterprise and a thriving destination for local people and visitors, celebrating local communities, creativity, and diversity. 

The Destinations PMO lead is an exciting role as part of the recently implemented new Destinations team structure, and key to realising the Destinations Strategy https://democracy.walthamforest.gov.uk/documents/s87295/Appendix%201%20-%20Destinations%20Business%20Plan.pdf.  As a member of the Destinations Leadership Team, you will have overarching responsibility for establishing effective programme and project management to enable, track and measure the impacts of the complex Destinations Change Programme, and support the team with its delivery. 

We’re looking for experience of developing and delivering complex, high-profile programmes, and highly effective ability to work with a fast paced team and a wide range of stakeholders, including members, senior officers, residents and communities.  Experience of working at a senior level in a local authority would be beneficial.
