Lambeth is transforming

Lambeth is one of London's most vibrant and exciting boroughs, with an expected increase of 40,000 residents over the next 15 years. Our top priority is making it even better for the people who live and work here. We're doing this through an infrastructure which includes building new homes and creating jobs in a high quality environment, connected to Central London.

Because of this, we're attracting internationally renowned developers who recognise that Lambeth is the perfect place for regeneration and investment. It's set to be the driver for the economy in Central London. And this success is likely to continue.

The sheer pace of change means that the Borough is offering unprecedented career opportunities that you won't find anywhere else in London right now. That's why we urgently need more people to help us deliver our ambitious plans and capital programmes.
