As Cabinet Executive Support Manager, you will lead an Executive Support Team providing strategic and efficient executive support to the Mayor, Cabinet and Deputy Cabinet Members to support them in their leadership roles.

Hackney is London's most diverse and dynamic borough. Stretching from the edge of the city, to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, it is an area of rapid economic growth, particularly in the tech, media, fashion, and other creative industries. Hackney has more green space than any other inner London borough, some of the capital's best schools, and first-class transport connections, which combined with excellent local public services and a thriving arts, cultural and retail sector, are fast making it one of London's most popular areas to live, work and visit. The challenge for Hackney is to make sure that the borough's economic growth provides benefits for everyone who lives here, and to create opportunities that will transform the lives of local people.

We know that staff are key to our success, and we are seeking people with ambition, creativity, and commitment to our values to help us achieve the best for the people of Hackney.
