Asset Manager

Strategically managing land and council homes for the benefit of 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. We are committed to embedding lessons from the Grenfell tragedy and are undertaking a major capital programme to significantly enhance fire and building safety standards across council-owned residential and commercial properties.

The Role:

Develop your asset management expertise in a role that offers genuine freedom and scope for innovation. You'll maintain a strategic overview of Kensington and Chelsea's Housing Revenue Account (HRA) to ensure optimum use and performance. This includes modelling various investment and disinvestment scenarios and developing option appraisals, as well as reporting to managers and council members. You will also play a lead role in developing design and technical standards for all new-build and refurbishment projects. Success depends on working closely with a range of partners, suppliers, consultants and contractors, as well as your own small team. Strong governance is key, but so is creative thinking.

About You:

With a background and professional qualification in construction or property development, you're likely to have spent some time with a public-sector organisation or commercial asset manager. Highly analytical, you'll have experience managing component replacement and regeneration contracts. You'll need the ability to work collaboratively and to build productive relationships with a wide range of stakeholders, so strong interpersonal and influencing skills are vital. Commitment, drive and good organisation are essential, as is proficiency in Keystone software.

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.

We work in partnership with Hampshire County Council (HCC) who deliver many transactional services on our behalf. Although most communications will be from HCC, all selection and appointment decisions will be made by RBKC. Certain services are shared across more than one Council area to nearby neighbouring Authorities. This enhances delivery and reduces costs. Your recruitment information will advise if your remit extends beyond RBKC.

We will primarily contact candidates by e-mail throughout the recruitment process, please monitor your email junk / spam folder as our system generated emails may be allocated to these folders by your email settings.

We engage our staff with a variety of learning types including face-to-face and virtual learning because we want to ensure our staff understand our values and behaviours, grow their skills and develop their careers.
