Senior Area Manager x3
Creating new opportunities for affordable homes
The housing crisis is one of the greatest challenges facing the capital – and the Mayor of London has ambitious plans to tackle it. The Greater London Authority (GLA) is working hard to make genuinely affordable homes a reality for more people. The scale of the challenge is huge, but so is our commitment. Together we can build a London for everyone.
Working within a defined area of London (North East, North West or South), you will foster close working relationships with local London boroughs at Director and Portfolio Holder level with a view to increasing the number of genuinely affordable homes. That means developing an understanding of neighbourhood regeneration and development opportunities, then promoting and brokering new initiatives, projects and programmes with major external partners such as government agencies, house builders, funding bodies and financial institutions. Expect to lead negotiations for complex commercial agreements, including development and funding agreements.
Your goal is to ensure the effective use and management of public funds and land assets, so a background in regeneration, development or the investment sector would be helpful, as would a relevant professional qualification. We value diversity of thought and experience, and encourage applications from those who can offer a new opinion or perspective. Experience of managing large investment programmes and carrying out detailed project management is essential. You will also need effective relationship management and negotiating skills. As this is a senior-level role, the ability to manage a small team of staff in a performance-oriented culture is key.
Please apply using your CV and a two page (maximum) covering letter. It is important you provide evidence of your skills, knowledge and experience and information outlined in the person specification for the role. Short listing will be carried out on the information on your CV and covering letter.
London's diversity is its biggest asset and we strive to ensure our workforce reflects London's diversity at all levels. You will be able to demonstrate a clear commitment to, and achievement in, promoting diversity, equality and inclusion. We welcome applications from everyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith or disability.
We are committed to being an inclusive employer and we are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. We would welcome applications from candidates who are seeking part time work as this role is open to job share.
In addition to a good salary package, we offer an attractive range of benefits including 30 days’ annual leave, interest free season ticket loan, interest free bicycle loan and a career average pension scheme.
