We are looking for a highly organised, motivated, and confident individual to deliver a full community liaison and customer care service to our London new build sites, specifically in the South East London area, with the requirement to multiple sites in Woolwich, Sydenham and Thamesmead.

Previous experience in a Resident / Community Liaison role within the construction industry is essential. Experience in dealing with customers, members of the public and strong administrative skills are of great importance. 

We require you to have excellent communication skills and a good command of the English language, as you will be our client’s initial point of contact for understanding their resident liaison requirements. You will also ensure consistent communication to both clients and residents throughout the project lifecycle, using relevant media platforms and arranged meetings/visits. In doing so, you will build customer confidence and satisfaction whilst promoting a positive company brand image.

Responsibilities will include undertaking community liaison activities such as events with local schools, colleges, and universities across the region to promote Lovell to future candidates, work towards our Section 106 & Social Value obligations and engage with the community. Also, you will attend resident and communication events including open forums, conferences, and meetings to support the community and ensure that any complaints are dealt with effectively.

Achieving our Considerate Contractors Scheme (CCS) requirements, working towards KPI targets for resident satisfaction and monitoring the Community Engagement Strategy will ensure that our residents and clients have the best customer experience possible.

Candidates should ideally hold a valid CSCS card; or you will be required to undertake the test to become a cardholder. You will also require a valid driving licence as you will be expected to travel to different sites.
