In St Helens we have a strong identity and sense of pride for our Borough, linking both industry and innovation to a strong local heritage, sitting in an area of rolling countryside and areas of outstanding natural beauty. There is absolute confidence for an exciting future, reflected by increasing business investment, more jobs and opportunities that include globally significant projects.
Our new leadership team are busy recasting the way we deliver our public services as we continue to transform how we fulfil our community and stakeholder priorities.
Now, more than ever, we need to drive innovative change across our services, enabling the Council to take the next step in delivering its ambitious agenda and adapting collectively to a changing world. We are ideally placed to play a big part in our regional debate too at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse with easy access to Liverpool, Merseyside, Lancashire and Greater Manchester and excellent Motorway and transport links.
We are rekindling our passion and commitment to drive through our extensive and exciting growth agenda, deliver excellent public services for our residents, and creating a resilient Council by developing strong partnerships, modernising our operations, improving the use of resources and supporting our economic recovery to offer the best quality of life to our thriving communities.
As part of the Council’s modernisation plans, we are reshaping and rebuilding the capability of our Property Services. This is aimed at improving public services for our residents and helping achieve more social, economic, and place-based regeneration outcomes for St. Helens.
Our vision is for Property to be valued as a proactive manager of our assets and a customer focussed provider of services that will facilitate outcomes for residents and our clients through improved customer experience, better use of the public estate, greater financial efficiency, achievement of borough priorities and contribution to the council’s transformation.
Building our Capability
Having redesigned the team structure to form an integrated Property Service we are seeking ambitious individuals who are collaborative and thrive working as part of a team, as well as confident in taking personal responsibility for achieving the best for our customers, clients, and colleagues.
