Haringey is a dynamic, diverse borough with a newly expanded Economic Development function set up to meet these challenges.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted on our business community and high streets unlike anything else in our lifetime. Haringey has responded by expanding their Town Centre Management function to cover town centres throughout the borough. The recently published Good Economy Recovery Plan and High Streets Recovery Action Plan sets out the challenge and what the council intends to do to address this critical period in the economy.
The post holder, reporting to the Haringey High Streets Manager, will take a lead on town centre management and business support initiatives in the centre of the borough (including Wood Green, Turnpike Lane and Green Lanes commercial centres) with a focus on working with the existing business networks including the business improvement district Future Wood Green and in ensuring our businesses prosper.
The ideal candidate will have proven town centre management or economic development experience in business engagement and support, project development and managing a project team, securing funding and commissioning work from consultants.
You will have the confidence and proven ability to drive forward complex projects, and will be regularly liaising with senior managers, elected members and a wide range of business stakeholders.
