It's an exciting time to be part of the Heathrow team. In June 2018, Parliament gave us the go ahead for Expansion. This isn’t just about a new runway. It’s about transforming the UK’s hub airport and securing the UK’s future place in the world.
This landmark decision will generate economic growth benefits worth up to £187 billion and create up to 180,000 new jobs across the UK. What’s more, it’ll pave the way for new domestic routes and up to 40 new international destinations. Construction will begin in 2021, but the work to make this huge project happen begins now. Which is why we’re looking for a whole host of people to join our Expansion department in areas from Finance and Airline Strategy to Community & Stakeholders.
Join us as a Residential Relocation Support Manager (Senior) and you’ll have huge scope to make your mark on what will be one of Europe’s largest infrastructure projects. You’ll shape its success in all sorts of ways, focusing in particular on our local communities, a more sustainable future, our millions of passengers, businesses in the UK and beyond, and all of your colleagues working at the airport.
As well as competitive salaries, we’re committed to providing a whole host of great benefits that make this an even more rewarding place to work. They include an excellent pension scheme, life assurance, access to private health insurance and, in IT, flexible working. We actively try to create part-time opportunities and use remote technologies to enable people to work from home.
We also have a range of initiatives designed to help people in our surrounding communities get to and from work cost-effectively and sustainably, from free travel on local buses through to subsidised rail fares. Not only that, when you get here, we’ll nurture your skills and do all we can to help you reach your full potential.
Be part of the 78 million passenger journeys we make happen each year. An incredibly important part.
As a Senior Residential Relocation Support Manager, you will manage the newly created Home Relocation Support Service team. It will provide a high level of customer service to residents and help them through every stage of the Bond process (using a case management approach), supporting them to proactively develop a plan to relocate.
Your Role Will Involve:

- Leading on the design of a property matching solution, helping residents in the Compulsory Purchase Zone to relocate to other areas close by.

- Representing the property team in meeting residents, stakeholders, and attending frequent community events to help promote the Home Relocation Support Service and residential compensation schemes. This role will require flexibility in responding to requests for meetings with residents and could involve some evening and/ or weekend work.
