About Us:

Use your skills to improve the quality of housing in the private rented sector.

In Kensington and Chelsea, we put local people and local businesses at the heart of decision-making, working in partnership with them to provide quality services that are responsive, effective and efficient. We want to be the best council, committed to protecting the health, safety and welfare of our residents and the public. We work to ensure that homes in the borough’s private rented sector are safe and well managed by responsible landlords and letting agents. We work with landlords to create a thriving professional private rented sector whilst tackling those who fail to provide a decent, safe home.

 The Role:

Joining a supportive and expanding team of like-minded professionals, you’ll carry out investigations and inspections of private sector housing, including houses in multiple occupation within our mandatory and additional licensing schemes.  You’ll advise on energy efficiency measures, and where necessary enforce health and safety standards using the full range of powers available.

There’s a high level of ‘hands on’ casework and project work, dealing with everyone from vulnerable tenants to professional portfolio landlords. Your overall aim will be to provide a high quality, customer-focused service that contributes to the overall improvement of housing conditions across this diverse borough.

Please refer to the Job Description for more information.

About You:

Committed, passionate and resilient, your background could be in anything from surveying, building and planning to housing management, but you will need a good basic understanding of construction and some experience of enforcement.

We offer full training in risk assessment, energy efficiency and other technical areas, as well as peer-to-peer mentoring. Also important is your ability to connect with residents, and fully understand their issues, so we’re looking for strong interpersonal skills.

Well-organised and systematic, you’ll be able to research and analyse information, and follow complex processes. You will also be joining an organisation that is focused on your career and development. Regular one to ones will give you the opportunity to plan a career path, identify training and qualifications needed to get you there and support in achieving your goals.

There has never been a better time to join RBKC as we go from strength to strength delivering outstanding services to our residents and community.
