Group Chief Executive Officer

Location: Dagenham
Organisation: BD Group
Reference: BDG001

The BD Group, a commercial company that combines the best of private sector commercial approaches and customer focus, with a public service ethos is reinvesting profits back into the people and communities of the Borough. The scale of our ambition has no limits, having trading successfully since its inception in April 2018, the BD Group is wholly-owned by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and operates as an independent organisation with a private sector governance structure, headed by a non-executive Chair and Board.

Having established commercial and education partnerships and purchased a 20-acre pharmaceutical site on behalf of the Council, we are successfully developing the site as a higher education centre for universities and a high-tech business centre, attracting media companies for both film and television. Barking and Dagenham is one of the East London Growth Boroughs, combined with the Council’s ‘Can Do’ approach to create an area of rapid and dynamic change, it is deemed to be the main growth area in London over the next 20 years with unparallel strategic potential to deliver for its community.

As the new Group CEO, you will bring an incontestable track record of stakeholder management, driving operational change and performance, whilst building capability across the Group’s trading entities. With strong commercial acumen, your strategic leadership will bring credibility and confidence with our partners. You will have delivered exceptional results and improved services at the public-private interface. Moreover, your strong value base will put our community at the heart of everything we do.
