*The Role *

Lewisham Homes is working to address housing needs in the borough through the active management of a housing stock comprising 13,000 rented and 5,000 leasehold dwellings.

This role will be responsible for managing the Clerk of Works Service thereby ensuring that our £40m pa building refurbishment programme is carried out in accordance with the contract documentation and relevant good practice.

The programme is delivered through external surveying and construction partners. The post-holder will manage the in-house Clerk of Works Service that reports to our Construction Delivery Manager and the consultants appointed under the building contracts.

Good record keeping is essential for this post. Consequently you will need to have good written and verbal communication skills as well as a sound knowledge of construction technology and relevant contract law.

The successful applicant will be able to demonstrate a track record of acting as a Clerk of Works on major construction programmes whilst displaying the behaviours that are needed to lead teams of in-house staff.
