Are you ready to power change?

At Southwark, we are committed to creating a better future for – and with – everyone who calls our borough home.

Over the last year, we’ve listened to thousands of residents, who have told us what they love about Southwark and what they’d like to change. Their feedback has helped us to develop a vision of what we want our borough to be like in 2030. Now we want to make that vision a reality. And we know we can achieve it if we make the most of our greatest strength: the power of our people.

That’s why we’re recruiting to a range of critical roles in our HR business partnering and employee relations teams. Together, the colleagues we recruit will work with leaders and people managers at every level of the council to create change and help us achieve our vision.

Join us and help to create a next generation workforce that is skilled, resilient, and fit for the future.

We know the kind of colleagues we are looking for – collaborators and change-makers who care about people and share our commitment to public service.

By harnessing our individual and collective contributions, we have the power to create a better future for Southwark.

“Southwark is a values-led council and our beliefs – in the power of people and the vital importance of tackling inequality – define who we are. If you are passionate about developing people and you want to create a fairer, brighter future, please take a look at our jobs and apply.”

─ Ben Plant, Director of People and Organisational Development
