Improve your skills as you improve quality of life for our residents.
In Kensington and Chelsea, we put local people and local businesses at the heart of decision-making, working in partnership with them to provide quality services that are responsive, effective and efficient. Across the borough, our Estates Services teams collaborate with residents of council-owned housing estates to look after shared amenities and outdoor spaces. We also work to combat anti-social behaviour, fly-tipping, litter and graffiti. Our aim is for everyone to have a clean, safe, healthy place to live.
Working across a clearly defined area of the borough, you will manage a team of Caretakers, as well as a number of contractors, ensuring they deliver efficient frontline services day to day. Highly visible to the community, you’ll also deal with complaints and provide emergency response to ensure the safety of residents during any incidents. Making sure your team stays highly motivated and performs well will be a key challenge. You will also look after their health and safety. It’s a great opportunity to learn and develop as a manager while improving people’s daily lives.
Please refer to the Job Description for more information
While estate management experience would be useful, it is not essential, providing you are capable of carrying out inspections and identifying problems and shortfalls in service. Well-organised, you’ll be able to keep track of stock and equipment, and to plan workloads for your team. You’ll also have good health and safety awareness. Calm under pressure, you’ll have strong communication skills and a genuine commitment to customer service.
In return, you can look forward to a package that includes a competitive salary, a high-quality pension scheme and generous annual leave plus bank holidays.
