At the Heart of Brent
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here. The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
Brent Council is seeking to strengthen its corporate governance arrangements by appointing two additional Independent Members to its Standards Committee. The Council’s Standards Committee is responsible for promoting and maintaining high standards of conduct by members (including co-opted members) of Brent Council. In particular, the Standards Committee has a key role to play in monitoring and enforcing compliance with the Brent Council Members’ Code of Conduct which sets the standards of conduct expected of its members when they act in an official capacity.
The successful candidates will have a keen interest in standards in public life and a wish to serve the local community and uphold local democracy. They will have sound decision making skills and be able to maintain independence, impartiality and integrity at all times.
