With the future of major regeneration programmes now sitting within the outer London Boroughs there is no better time to join Enfield Council.

Their flagship regeneration programme is Meridian Water, the regeneration of an 85- hectare site; our delivery approach is without precedent - the Council has taken control and will act as Master Developer for the site -37 hectares of land have been acquired, £170million of infrastructure funding has been secured from government, planning obtained for 3,000 homes and a partner for the first 1,000 homes has been selected.

The delivery of Meridian Water demonstrates Enfield's ambitions as a local authority. For us, Meridian Water is about delivering our passion for successful communities with high quality housing to make sure that we create places that enable our communities to prosper. It must be holistic; it must involve all stakeholders and it must promote successful placemaking. Sited next to the Lee Valley Regional Park and with its own brand new railway station, the new neighbourhood is sharply focused on delivering sustainable homes, world class public spaces and community facilities, and providing future residents unparalleled access to both nature reserves and connections to the city centre, Stansted and Cambridge. We are looking for an experienced and dedicated development professional to join our Commercial team and support the delivery and viability of this important work.

This work will be focussed on early development stages which include entering into commercial land agreements with development partners.
