Newlon Housing Trust is a successful charitable housing association and one of the major providers of new affordable housing in north and east London.


In this important role in Newlon’s senior management team, you will represent the Property Services Department and take the lead in managing and developing the Special Projects Team.


With responsibility for the control of major, large scale refurbishment projects within Newlon’s existing stock, including all fire safety-related major works projects, you will report to the Assistant Director, liaising with stakeholders, residents and contractors to provide end-to-end project management for the projects, from initial investigations through to building remediation and potential Court or Arbitration matters. You will ensure each individual project runs as smoothly as possible, is delivered on time and within budget, and to Newlon’s usual high standard.


With substantial professional experience as a Surveyor, Construction Manager or similar, and a relevant qualification at Level 4 or above, you will have a proven management background with the ability to lead a team of professionals and deliver substantial planned maintenance works programmes and complex construction projects. You will have first class project management and communication skills, along with sound knowledge of housing property law, industry standards and property related health and safety. You will ideally have membership of a relevant professional body such as RICS, CIOB or CIH, and you must be able to travel easily from site to site so use of a vehicle would also be an advantage.


In return, you can expect 27 days holiday, a non-contributory pension, excellent benefits and a flexi scheme. You’ll also be working out of purpose-built offices that form part of the award-winning Hale Village regeneration project and are situated just two minutes’ walk from the major transport interchange at Tottenham Hale.


Given the scale of our ambition, you will need to be passionate about wanting to make a difference to our communities and boroughs. Moreover, your strong value base will put our communities at the heart of everything we do.   


This is an extremely exciting and prosperous time to join Newlon. If you are interested in this key position, then we look forward to receiving your application.
