About us

Hampstead Garden Suburb was developed in the early 20th century as an exemplar of good practice in residential estate planning and domestic design. It is now considered to be one of the finest examples of its type and includes around five thousand houses and flats, as well as commercial properties, public buildings, gardens, allotments and other open spaces. The careful attention given to the green environment by the original planners, including the retention of pre-existing trees, fully justifies its status as the premier Garden Suburb.

Hampstead Garden Suburb Trust was established to maintain and preserve the character and amenities of the Suburb. It does this principally through a Scheme of Management for freehold properties, and its ownership of leasehold properties. The Trust controls alterations to buildings, manages its green estate and undertakes occasional improvement projects of community benefit.

Our offer

The role is permanent, full-time and office based.

The salary will be £30-34,000 depending on qualifications and experience.

Office hours are 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. Occasional evening work is required to support Estate Committee and Allotment Committee meetings, for which time off in lieu will be offered.

Benefits include a contributory pension and 25 working days' annual leave.

How to apply

Please submit your CV, together with a maximum 1000 word personal statement showing how your skills, competencies and experience suit you for this role, to the Estate Manager, Jane Horder, at by 9am on Tuesday 21st September
