Programme Support Apprentice – Regeneration

Qualification: Business Administrator – Level 3

A lack of genuinely affordable homes is a key concern for Hackney’s residents, and addressing this is at the heart of the Council’s work. That’s why Hackney is building. The Council’s Regeneration team is building thousands of new homes for social rent, shared ownership and outright sale at more than 30 sites across Hackney. It is leading on the delivery of this in-house programme at all stages – starting with setting the briefs for sites, selecting architects and the wider design teams, managing the design process and procuring contractors or developer partners.
