Job Details

London Diocesan Fund is seeking to make the influential appointment of Head of Asset Management within the Parish Property Support 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. The London Diocese Fund (LDF) exists to support the mission of the Church of England in London; hence its strategy is nested entirely within the wider objectives of the Diocese’s Capital Vision.

The LDF has responsibility for 3,500 properties of which 1,800 support parish life. The Parish Property Support (PPS) team provide professional property advice to parishes alongside proactively managing the portfolio of closed churches and aligned buildings. The Parish Property Support team oversee a portfolio of around 100 buildings of which 30 are closed churches. The properties within the PPS team are hugely varied including a high number of listed buildings, most of which are ‘place makers’ and form the visual centre piece of a conservation area.

Reporting to the Director of Parish Property Support, the Head of Asset Management post has been newly created following further investment from the Diocese in the Property Support Team. The key focus of the Head of Asset Management role is to identify and release value and income from a highly varied portfolio by creating asset management initiatives in respect of existing property holdings to maximise return. The role provides a diverse range of responsibilities including lease negotiation, asset management, planning and development, lettings, disposals, and refurbishments. Existing projects range from £100k to £8m in value.

The Head of Asset Management is also responsible for a small team and will be responsible for motivating and developing the team to deliver exceptional service to meet the overall objectives of the PPS team. Strong stakeholder engagement and negation skills are vital to success in the post owing the range of partner groups, both internally and externally in often sensitive environments.

Diverse estate management experience, including working with Grade l and Grade ll listed properties is crucial to the appointment alongside a passion and personal interest in historic buildings.

The Head of Asset Management post offers a senior level role which is dedicated to an outstanding portfolio, offering extensive opportunity for improvement, and which directly impacts its local community and visual landscape.
