Job Details

Deliver a 21st century model housing estate that is carbon-neutral by 2030

Following the Grenfell Tower tragedy, a commitment was made to undertake a comprehensive refurbishment of the Lancaster West Estate, delivered sensitively and collaboratively with residents. 

As part of a council commitment to deliver carbon-neutral council housing by 2030, the scope of the refurbishment now embraces all elements that will improve the energy performance of the homes we manage.
 

The Role:

This is a complex, innovative and highly visible programme of national significance, part-funded by central government and the European Union. It includes the simultaneous retrofitting of some 795 properties alongside the installation of a renewable heat network. 

As Net Zero Project Manager, you’ll work closely with consultants, contractors and residents to embed a range of sustainability initiatives and energy-saving measures within the refurbishment. This will include everything from windows, insulation systems and mechanical and electrical systems such as MVHR and PV panels. 

You’ll need to manage contracts and overall plans to ensure projects are delivered on time, on budget and to specification, so there’s a strong organisational and commercial element to the role.

Please refer to the Job Description for more information. 

About You:

You’re likely to have experience of working in sustainable construction, a track record of methodical project management, and a wide-ranging knowledge of building energy performance. Although technical expertise in housing refurbishment and procurement is important, you’ll also need strong public engagement skills. Consultative, collaborative and engaging, you’ll be sensitive to the needs of a traumatised community while also ambitious to achieve a positive legacy. Outstanding communication, negotiating and influencing skills are essential. 

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.

About Us

Kensington and Chelsea is one of London’s most vibrant and recognisable boroughs. It has many unique buildings, famous museums and beautiful parks. Although the borough is geographically one of the smallest in London, at just over 4.7 square miles, it is one of the most densely populated and diverse areas in Europe. It is home to the world-famous Notting Hill Carnival. Kensington and Chelsea Council (also known as RBKC) aims to provide high quality services to improve the lives of its residents and to make the borough a better place in which to live, work, and visit.

Housing and Grenfell

This department is responsible for housing, communities and improving the lives of local residents.  This includes landlord services and estate management, planning, refurbishment, and advice and support to help maintain healthy and safe homes.

A significant part of our work is focused on creating stronger communities, by working together with local residents on recovery following the Grenfell tragedy.  

In response to London’s affordable homes crisis, we are committed to building more social housing to help people on lower incomes to live, work, and raise their families in the borough. Housing also covers landlord services and estate management, planning, refurbishment, and advice and support to help maintain healthy and safe homes.

Our housing team also work closely with affordable housing providers and other agencies to manage homelessness and give support to older residents to live independently.  Find out more about our vacancies here.
