Play a key role in delivering net zero for a high-profile London borough
At the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, we strive to put our residents and local businesses at the heart of every decision. From the strategic decisions we make to the services we provide, it is essential that we put the needs of our community first. We want to provide everyone with an excellent quality of life, with access to comfortable housing, sustainable and attractive employment options, and the opportunity to live and work in a healthy and safe environment; and our financial management services play a vital role in achieving these goals.
You will play a leading role in the development of our crucial net zero financing and investment strategy. This includes building business models as well as identifying opportunities for funding and other types of revenue.
