Job opportunities with the Community Hubs team!

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Redbridge is an ambitious, diverse and exciting east London borough. We’re one of the fastest growing parts of the country, and one of the most diverse boroughs in London. As a council, what we do is driven by changing our relationship with local people to make Redbridge a great place to live.

The Community Hubs programme is a flagship initiative at the heart of our vision for the borough.

We are working with residents to co-design and run five Community Hubs and a Civic Hub in accessible locations across Redbridge. Each hub will reflect local priorities and enable a range of activities and support across the local area. Hubs are physical buildings where local people can come together and use services such as libraries, GP surgeries and community spaces.

You can find out more about the programme here:
