London Diocesan Fund is seeking to make the appointment of Senior Property Services Manager to its Housing team.

The Church of England in London is vibrant and at the heart of communities throughout the capital. The Diocese of London comprises parishes, chaplaincies, and missional communities in London north of the River Thames. The London Diocesan Fund (LDF) seek to do all that they can to support mission and growth in the Diocese of London, using resources to help parishes and worshipping communities serve over 4 million people.

Reporting to the Head of Housing, the Senior Property Services Manager is a newly created post responsible for the continued transformation of its housing management service. The LDF have a £1bn property portfolio, of which circa 400 assets are dedicated housing for clergy. With a mixed portfolio (ranging from more modern to heritage assets), the Housing team are responsible for all ingoing works, quinquennial works, compliance, refurbishments and planned and reactive maintenance.

Central to the role is the endeavour to deliver and drive an ethos of exemplary standard of service within the team. As an experienced leader in housing maintenance or building surveying (with the relevant degree or industry qualification) you will possess strong contractor management skills with a natural customer centric approach.

The Senior Property Services Manager appointment offers the opportunity to have a direct impact on the lives of the clergy in the Diocese within an organisation which supports the wider and local community. The LDF are offering a competitive salary, generous pension contribution and leave allowance alongside private healthcare.
