• Job description

    This is a really exciting time for  Thanet District Council’s Tenant and Leaseholder Services, as we embark on a £20 million refurbishment and retrofit project for our tower blocks. 

    This project will improve both safety and energy efficiency as well as the  environment for 406 households.  It is a highly complex project due to the nature of the buildings, using multiple funding streams and requiring compliance with the new Building Safety Act.

    We are looking for a motivated professional to join our amazing team and to lead this exciting project.


    We need an exceptional project manager who has experience in leading projects from inception to completion. They will be able to deliver to tight deadlines within budget.

    The ideal candidate will be  a strong leader with exceptional communication skills. They will be able to manage a dedicated team to deliver this project, as well as working with our contractors.

    Residents must be kept at the heart of this project, there will be much disruption as we commence this work and new technologies are being installed. Our Senior Project Manager needs to ensure meaningful engagement with the residents ensuring all voices are heard throughout the process.

    If you are passionate about engaging with people and getting large projects over the line then we want to hear from you. If you have experience of delivering refurbishment works or retrofit measures to increase energy efficiency, this would be advantageous, but is not essential.

    If you would like to further information or an informal discussion about this position, please contact Kieran Cooper by email: [email protected]

    Our historic seaside towns of Ramsgate, Margate and Broadstairs and surrounding villages are rich in heritage and opportunity.  With 19 miles of stunning coastline, our beautiful Blue Flag beaches, the internationally renowned Turner Contemporary, and the UK’s only Royal Harbour are all just a short train ride from central London thanks to the high-speed rail link. Our proximity to the port of Dover and the Eurotunnel at Folkestone mean Europe is literally on our doorstep too. 

    All of this, combined with a flexible approach to how we work makes it an exciting time to join Thanet District Council. We have set our sights high. We want our residents to enjoy the highest quality services. We want to ensure that by listening to local people, working in active partnership and doing things in an innovative way, we can accelerate improvement to meet the challenges ahead.
