Repairs Manager – London Diocesan Fund (LDF)

London Diocesan Fund is seeking to make the appointment of Repairs Manager to its Housing and Property 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. At the London Diocesan Fund (LDF), we seek to do all that we can to support mission and growth in the Diocese of London, using our resources to help our parishes and worshipping communities serve over 4 million people.

The Repairs Manager is responsible for reactive repairs across the LDF’s £850m occupied and let residential assets, a substantial portion of the total £1bn portfolio. Central to the role is the endeavour to deliver an exemplary standard of service in every customer engagement whilst overseeing essential maintenance works.

The LDF’s residential portfolio is divided into two key areas: homes of the clergy and privately let assets:

  • Operational housing – 400 homes occupied by members of the clergy.
  • Let residential portfolio – circa 150 properties generating a gross income of £3m.

Reporting to the Head of Housing, the newly created post of Repairs Manager will be part of an established team who oversee the planned and preventative maintenance, lettings and quinquennial surveys and works of the LDF’s housing portfolio. As an experienced housing maintenance professional or building surveyor (with a relevant trade experience, degree or industry qualification) you will possess strong contractor management skills with a natural customer centric approach.

The Repairs 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.

Whilst we welcome applications from people regardless of their background, we particularly encourage applications from women and those from ethnic minority backgrounds as they are currently under-represented within the organisation at this level.

Closing date for applications is midnight on 24th January 2021.

First stage interviews with MRG scheduled for w/c 25th January 2021.

First stage interviews with LDF scheduled for 4th February 2020.
