Senior Building Safety Manager – Property Services

Full-time, Permanent

Salary: £59,929 per annum, plus eligibility to participate in the Performance Related Pay Scheme

Location: Hale Village, London, N17

Newlon Housing Trust is a successful charitable housing association and one of the major providers of new affordable housing in north and east London. And right now, we’re looking for a Senior Building Safety Manager.

We’re looking for a talented individual to play a leading role in supporting our Property Services Director and the wider Executive team, by ensuring that Newlon fully complies with the Building Safety Act.

Following Dame Judith Hackitt’s review of Building Safety and the Regulatory System, this role has been created to prepare Newlon for the anticipated changes in regulations, in terms of developing policies and processes, working with the Head of Building Services building a team of Building Safety Managers and developing our safety case and safety management system.

This will involve taking responsibility for the leadership and development of the Building Safety Team, ensuring that all fire and building safety duties are carried out effectively and robustly in all Newlon’s high rise and/or higher risk residential buildings.

In addition, you will make sure that Newlon meets its obligations in respect of reporting on compliance and receiving necessary approvals/certification for these buildings from all relevant regulatory bodies.

You’ll already have a demonstrable track record of success in a professional management role, combined with a degree or at least Level 4 diploma level qualification in a relevant technical construction related discipline. Membership of a safety related institution (CIOB, RICS, IFE, IFSM, IFE, IFSM, IOSH, or equivalent), is also essential, as is a good understanding of housing property law, industry standards and good practice.

You’ll proven experience of the diverse duties this role demands, including the line management of a dispersed professional team, contract and budget management and the project management, analysis and review of audits and investigations.

In return, you can expect 27 days holiday, a non-contributory pension, excellent benefits and flexi time. You’ll also be working out of purpose-built new offices that form part of the award-winning Hale Village regeneration project, and are situated just two minutes’ walk from the major transport interchange at Tottenham Hale.

Closing date: 11:59pm, Wednesday 14th April 2021.

Assessments (Virtual) will be held on: Monday 19th April – Thursday 22nd April 2021

Interviews (Zoom) will be held on: Friday 30th April 2021

Newlon Housing Trust is a charitable housing association and a committed Equal Opportunities employer.

No agencies please.


The Newlon Group consists of Newlon Housing Trust, the parent of the Group, and its five subsidiaries – Outward, Newlon Fusion, Access Homes, NewlonBuild and NewlonInvest.

We all work closely together to provide a comprehensive range of high quality community services.

Newlon Housing Trust is a not for profit Community Benefit Society and a charitable housing association. Newlon owns or manages around 8,000 affordable homes, primarily in nine boroughs in north and east London, with many more in development. These homes are made up of a mix of affordable tenures and we provide housing for people nominated from local authority waiting lists, specialised accommodation for Key Workers and Shared Ownership homes to help people take their first step on the property ladder. Working in partnership with Outward we also provide housing for people with a wide range of support and care needs.

Outward is a charity working with more than 1,000 people who need additional care and support to live their lives and realise their full potential. They provide a range of specialist services for older people, people with mental health issues, young people and people with learning disabilities, including a specialised service that supports people on the autism spectrum. Outward works across north and east London, employs over 400 staff and runs an innovative and award-winning volunteer programme. It also provides a number of specialist services in Bromley and a rural retreat at Nutley Edge in East Sussex.

Newlon Fusion is the Group’s community regeneration charity. It works alongside the Trust’s Community Services team and with a wide range of partners to support Newlon residents and the people living in areas where Newlon has housing. It also delivers activities and services at the Lascar Wharf community centre in Limehouse.

NewlonBuild is the Group’s construction arm. It is a private company limited by shares and provides design, build and development services for the Group. It is also able to invest in market housing. It has an independent Chair and is serviced by the Trust.

Access Homes is a small non-charitable housing association which, like the Trust, retains any surpluses to invest in housing activities. Access also provides services to leaseholders. It does not employ any staff.

NewlonInvest is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Newlon Housing Trust which makes commercial investments in housing development.
