Stewardship and community are our watchwords. Our challenge is to continually improve and exceed rising expectations and we need an exceptional person to help us do that.

If this is you, we would like to hear from you:

  • You are an influential, driven, BID or Place Management specialist.
  • You can bring vision and drive to the heart of London, collaborating with our asset management and marketing teams to help deliver our overarching objective of making Chelsea the best place in the world to live, work and visit.
  • You are a strong people person and have the expert knowledge to make a strategic and creative contribution to the management of public and private spaces on the Estate.

We would like you to manage Sloane Street to the standards of a Business Improvement District (BID). Liaising closely with retailers to understand their needs, pulling together occasional informal retailer meetings, implementing and communicating a programme of services, and develop similar BID-type mechanisms for other locations on the Cadogan Estate, particularly Sloane Square, Pavilion Road, and Duke of York Square.

You will also liaise closely with the two existing BIDs – King’s Road Partnership & Knightsbridge Partnership – to maximise their value to Cadogan and to ensure that our respective programmes are aligned and integrated.

You will work closely with the projects team in implementing major public realm schemes on the estate, notably the Future Sloane Street project that went on site in Summer 2022. You will help developing future public realm schemes, liaise with other agencies in shaping the plans and lead on strategic communications with retailers and other stakeholders.

You will develop important and strong relationships with local Councillors, prominent residents, other stakeholders and our customers, helping us work as a positive force for good and as the responsible long term steward of the area.

This is a role that will require you to be on patch and visible. We offer flexible working from home one day a week and a part time role may be considered for the right person.

The remuneration package will reflect the person and the role, and we offer an excellent pension, a 25-day holiday allowance and other benefits.
