We need someone who appreciates the importance of customer focus. You will demand excellent standards and quality from staff, contractors and our Building Maintenance DLO, working collaboratively to improve our overall performance.

You must be able to work effectively within the context of Hackney Council’s wider strategic objectives and have the ability to lead and adapt to change.
We need someone with excellent communication and relationship building skills, with a strong commitment to resident engagement. Your track record will show you can motivate multi-disciplinary teams, find creative ways of tackling problems and successfully promote cultural change.
