Give our borough the best.

Help build a brand new Property Management team to serve Camden’s communities.

Something exciting is happening in Camden. We’re launching a new Property Management Service that’s better for our borough. To take on an agenda that’s bursting with varied and interesting projects, we’ve restructured our team and created a number of senior roles. Join a Council that cares about its people – and be part of something new.

As our Contract Resourcing Team Leader, you’ll make sure that our Property Management professionals have the materials and supply chain to deliver all kinds of projects. Leading a 12-strong Procurement team, including Building Surveyors, you’ll manage a budget of £380m over five years.

It’s a huge capital investment and we want to spend it wisely. That’s why we need you to oversee the procurement of all work packages. We’ll trust you to ensure scoping surveys are robust and work packages reflect resident feedback as well as our requirements. You’ll then create scoping packs for mini-competition processes. You’ll also be in charge of procurement strategy and see that we have the contracts in place to deliver services to our residents. With suppliers, costs and contracts to manage, you’ll be right at the heart of our new Property Management Services.

You’ll also have a good grasp of financial management including open book accounting and final account processes. In addition to commercial acumen, you’ll have natural people skills.
