Hackney has a thriving night time economy with an international reputation. Balancing the needs of our local residents with those of licensees and visitors, is an important part of our work to make this borough a place for everyone. Hackney Council is now looking for someone with excellent communications skills and experience in licensing to lead on this work.
As Late Night Levy Manager, you will have responsibility for implementing our Partnership Night Time Economy Action Plan. Day to day this will involve meeting with the Late Night Levy board, Pub Watch and a number of different groups. You will be liaising with councillors, our residents, police and other enforcement teams - as well as our local night traders.
We need someone with excellent influencing skills, who can build effective working relationships with our diverse communities. You should be a strategic thinker and be able to communicate our long-term vision in a way that engages a variety of people. You should have excellent presentation skills and be able to prepare written reports and compile statistics as needed.
Although you will be based within our licensing team, you will need to be self-motivated and able to manage your own workload. As first point of contact for all aspects of the Late Night Levy, you will have to prioritise competing demands and establish effective admin systems. Although you won't be a budget holder, you must be able to keep accurate financial records and ensure we have a clear audit trail of any spending.
To thrive in this role, you should really understand the essence of our local entertainment scene and the legalities of licensing. This work involves a lot of face to face interaction and you should be able to deal with complex issues in a sensitive yet professional manner. This role involves visiting premises during trading hours and you will be working some evenings and weekends, occasionally outside in all weathers.
We need someone with experience managing small projects. You must also have a solid working understanding of the Licensing Act 2003. Experience working in licensing management or with late night traders would be ideal.
