Make a difference to the lives of our residents.
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is a great place in which to further your career. With a focus on shaping public services that are people-centric, we strive to deliver results that are of the highest quality and make best use of the resources that are available to us. This creates a truly innovative and collaborative workplace in which we are keen to learn from what our colleagues are telling us – so if you have ambitious ideas that you would like to put into practice, this is the place to do just that.
Join our Resident Safety Contracts & Compliance team which sits within Property services, and you will handle the day-to-day management of third-party suppliers who are working on both domestic and communal systems. Benefitting from the support of a highly skilled, technically-minded team who care about making a difference to the lives of our local residents, you will maintain oversight of a wide range of outsourced gas contractors as they deliver planned works and repairs. Seeing to it that the highest standards are being maintained, you will provide advice on the condition of installations, and you will make recommendations on the development of future maintenance programmes. Maintaining an excellent knowledge of changing gas and water regulations, you will also assist in the procurement and delivery of communal and domestic boilers.
