The Role:

As a Housing Project Manager in our new directorate of Housing Services and Resident Engagement, you can make your own powerful contribution to our residents’ quality of life. You will deliver and manage a workforce strategy and performance framework to ensure we have the people and skills in place to provide an efficient, consistent and responsive housing service for the future. This will mean taking the lead on a number of programmes of work, as well as key strategies and processes – in workforce development and beyond.

You’ll be part of passionate and dedicated team that’s centred on the needs of the communities we serve.  It’s a fast-paced environment with a focus on finding new opportunities to collaborate, engage, and drive improvement and culture change. Working closely with senior managers and teams will be pivotal to your success.

Please refer to the Job Description for more information.

About You:

You’re likely to have expertise in developing workforce strategies and performance frameworks, ideally in a public sector or housing context. With experience of leading people and projects, you’ll have good insights into organisational development, along with excellent stakeholder and partnership management skills. You’ll be able to point to a track-record of successful transformation projects. Analytical and creative problem-solving skills are vital. In this busy environment, the ability to manage conflicting priorities is also key.

The Council is committed to achieving diverse shortlists to support our desire to increase the number of staff from underrepresented groups in our workforce. We especially encourage applications from a global majority background and, while the role is open to all applicants, we will utilise the positive action provisions of the Equality Act 2010 to appoint a candidate from a global majority background where there is a choice between two candidates of equal merit. If you are from a Global Majority background you can self-declare this to the hiring manager as part of our positive action commitments.

What We Offer:

Westminster is an amazing place. We are home to more than 200,000 residents from all backgrounds, over 50,000 vibrant and vital businesses and three-quarters-of-a-million people work in Westminster.

Westminster City Council’s strategy is to work towards a Fairer Westminster. A Fairer Westminster is one in which our communities are at the heart of our decision-making and help to determine the city’s future. By working directly with our communities and other partners, we can build a more inclusive city that celebrates our diverse communities, and where residents, workers and visitors from all backgrounds will feel welcome and safe.

At Westminster City Council, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive workplace and employer of choice. We encourage and welcome applications from people from all backgrounds and aim to have a workforce that, at all levels, represents the communities we serve. We champion equality, diversity, inclusion and wellbeing and aim to create a workplace where everyone feels valued, has a sense of belonging and is empowered to be their best, that is the Westminster Way.

The Council is a Disability Confident Employer. If you have declared a disability in your application, we guarantee an interview if you meet the essential criteria of the job. If you are invited for interview, you will be asked if you need any reasonable adjustments in order to attend, and we will make these wherever possible.
