About us

Ealing is a place with huge potential. It’s one of London’s largest boroughs, has over 350,000 residents, and with over half from BAME communities, is rich in cultural diversity. We’re home to the world-famous Ealing Studios, a number of major parks and conservation sites, a leading modern university in the University of West London, and a wide range of important businesses and enterprises. As a Council we aim to engage with our communities, and work with them in partnership. We want all our residents to have their voices heard, and our bold and imaginative ambitions are matched by our determination to do things differently.

About the role

In this important role, you’ll manage a group of high-rise and high-risk residential buildings, ensuring compliance with all the legislative regulations for building and fire safety, and take responsibility for one or more areas of building safety. Leading a small team of Building Safety Officers, you’ll procure and manage inspection, servicing, maintenance and repairs contracts for statutory compliance areas for the Council’s social housing stock, and review and approve the relevant compliance areas in relation to the refurbishment of this stock.

You’ll have a range of additional tasks, including communicating building and fire safety to all residents within high-rise and high-risk buildings, monitoring the status of buildings including the completion of repairs, fire risk assessments actions and scheduled maintenance, and reviewing and updating the building safety case. We’ll also expect you to liaise with housing and legal teams to ensure access to properties to allow the completion of essential maintenance work, and maintain Health and Safety records relating to the buildings under your management.

About you

With a relevant qualification or equivalent professional experience, and membership of an appropriate professional body, you’ll have experience of working in a similar environment, and practical knowledge of budgeting and cost savings. An inspirational leader with a solid record of professional development and the management of various technical disciplines, you’ll possess the skills to analyse contractors’ designs and specifications, and be familiar with commercial and domestic installations.

With plenty of project management experience and knowledge of procurement and tendering processes, you’ll be capable of creating specifications and pricing documents. We’ll look for practical experience of the management of estate operations, and knowledge of safety legislation and its practical application. You should also have a thorough understanding of relevant codes and the practical control of sites, and possess the skills to communicate with a wide range of different audiences.

Ealing Council is committed to building a workforce which reflects the diversity of the borough’s residents, encouraging applications from people of all ages, abilities, genders, sexual orientations, ethnic backgrounds and faiths, and aspires to create an inclusive workplace were everyone can be themselves at work.

The dwindling case for living in London

Published

The recent debate around ‘levelling up’ may be missing something. I would argue that there is another way to consider geographical inequality – and, by this alternative measure, a levelling has been under way for more than 20 years.

I’ve spent three decades working in advertising, so it’s unsurprising that I tend to view economic life through the lens of consumption. By contrast, mainstream economists tend to view disparities through the medium of earnings or wealth. To me, measures of wealth should include not only the quantity of money you have but the breadth of worthwhile options available in choosing how to spend it.

Let’s put it another way. If you live in a boring village, and suddenly a great pub or café opens on the high street, then by my measure you have become richer; by the economist’s measure you have not.

Things that would once have been available in London decades before the provinces now appear everywhereat once 

There was undoubtedly a time when you were richer in London in two ways. You had more money, but you also had a far more exciting range of ways to spend it. Now not so much.

London is a great city but, in terms of consumption quality, it has not improved markedly in the past 20 years. Over the same period, many smaller cities and even towns have advanced rapidly, significantly narrowing the gap. The kind of things that would once have been available in the capital decades before making it to the provinces – like sushi – now appear everywhere at once. Consider Turkish barbers, who seem to have taken over the country in only five years. (I can remember a time when it was enough just to get a haircut without having burning methylated spirits flicked in my ears. Back then I just didn’t know any better.)

This levelling is especially true of anything in the digital world: Amazon gadgets, Netflix films, Asos fashions and PlayStation games hit Aberystwyth the same day they hit Islington. But it also applies to the physical environment, as anyone over 50 can attest. I went to Manchester and Sheffield for the first time in 1989. Compared with London, they were then, let’s be honest, utterly rubbish. Now, when I visit those same cities, I experience mild ‘northern envy’. There are interesting places open everywhere. Northerners have better cars, because they have more money left over after paying for housing. And they are much better-looking, because they can nip home to get changed before going out.

Relatively speaking, London has improved far less dramatically than these provincial cities have. (New York, many aficionados argue, has got worse.) OK, the Tube is better than it used to be. Uber is a handy addition. But some things are awful – the last pleasure of driving in London ended when they put speed cameras on the Westway. Accommodation costs for the young wipe out any salary gains.

CLAIM

By my measure, high property prices won’t just hit Londoners once – they’ll hit them twice. Not only do high rents wipe out what you earn, they also put at risk London’s once unassailable advantage as a great place to spend what money you have left. Creative businesses of any kind require space at a price which allows them to take risks. For a time, London found this space by moving its heartland from west to east. But suppose the people supporting what Douglas McWilliams calls ‘the flat white economy’ flee altogether? In my own experience, Kent suddenly seems weirdly full of fascinating restaurants founded by London exiles. If more of these people leave, the case for staying weakens further.

Londoners always say things like ‘Yes but there’s the theatre’. Let’s face it though – even Shakespeare left London for Stratford in his mid-forties. As he no doubt found, the theatre is all very well, but it’s nothing like being able to park outside your house.
