Ensuring that an investment in Lancaster West is also an investment in North Kensington, we are working closely with local communities to provide new jobs and training opportunities, promote health and well-being, and put a green recovery at the heart of Grenfell recovery.

Focusing on sustainability and carbon neutrality, you’ll work effectively with residents, service providers and community partners to coordinate and support a range of projects. You’ll liaise with colleagues across all levels of the Council and beyond, communicating information clearly and concisely, managing both your own time, and the time of others. Most importantly, you’ll be fully immersed in shaping the future of community service provision, and part of a a forward-thinking team that is working to make tangible, positive changes to the lives of residents in the local area.
