Why does working in Barking and Dagenham interest you?
What are your ambitions for the borough?
What role does the community have in realising that ambition?
The community are front and centre of realising that ambition. We can all work as hard as we like to create an amazing place where we think people have choices and are able to live their best lives, but if that doesn’t align with the opportunities that people want and the lives they want to lead then we are wasting our time. So much of our older lives are formed from the opportunities we have access to when we are younger that we need to start really hearing what the young people need to thrive in the future.
