The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and London Borough of Wandsworth present a unique opportunity to be part of a team who are working together to create a ground-breaking shared staffing structure across both boroughs.
The Leasehold and Procurement Section operating within Wandsworths Housing and Community Services requires an officer to administer contract procurement processes within the Department's Housing Division and also process requests for information from solicitors acting for clients who are in the process of buying or selling leasehold properties which they own, where the Council is the freeholder/landlord. The emphasis in contract procurement is to ensure the efficient and timely tendering and letting of all construction, consultancy and term contracts. The emphasis in relation to pre-assignment of lease enquiries is to ensure that these are responded to within a tight time frame. Training will be provided. Both areas of work require administrative skills to ensure that processes are strictly complied with and that all responses to correspondence are accurate and clear. The post also involves ensuring that records relating to major works scheme are maintained. You will have excellent time management skills to ensure that multiple deadlines are always met and have the ability to produce quality work with minimum supervision. The ability to utilise IT applications including the use of MS Word and Excel packages is essential, together with excellent communication, written, verbal and numeracy skills.
