We Are St Helens Borough Council.

Located in the heart of the Northwest close to Liverpool, Manchester and Lancashire, St Helens is a transformational Council which is passionate and ambitious for the communities we support. We provide a wide range of local authority services to the residents, businesses, schools, and visitors to the borough. We can only do this because of our highly valued, highly skilled workforce.

Working together, our workplace vision and values guide our organisation, and the contribution of our workforce is key to our culture journey. Employees with us receive a wide range of benefits including well-being in work, financial benefits, ways of working and learning and development support.

Who we are

The Property Team at St Helens has recently been redesigned to create four specific team areas under the leadership of our Head of Property.
The four teams; Customer Services & Business Support, Facilities & Building Maintenance, Design & Major Projects and Commercial Estates, have been redesigned to meet our vision of being a proactive manager of our assets and a customer focused provider of services that will facilitate outcomes for our residents and our clients through improved customer experience, better use of public estate, greater financial efficiency, achievement of our borough priorities and contribution to the Councils transformation programme.

Join our team

Having redesigned the service, we are now seeking two ambitious individuals, with a desire to improve local authority services and with a keen focus on the customer, to complement our Property Senior Management Team.
So, if you an existing manager looking for a new challenge or a senior professional looking for the next step in your career, and want to join a forward-thinking management team, then we want to hear from you.
