Markets Manager

Ref: 53682


Something exciting is happening at the London Borough of Lewisham. We’re creating a whole new Commercial Operations Service in our Public Realm division. The new Service will help us meet the community's needs and achieve our strategic priorities through an ambitious programme of work. If you’re a capable leader with a business mind, join our newly created team. 

As our Markets Manager, you’ll manage Lewisham’s vibrant Street Markets and Street Trading service, supporting the Commercial Services Manager. Day to day, you’ll co-ordinate, plan and deliver licensed street trading and market management-related services, with an eye on relevant legislation. 

Day to day, you’ll undertake operational management of street trading services, making sure that they achieve service, performance, and quality standards targets. You’ll also take charge of an income and expenditure budget for Street Trading of up to £1 million.  

This is a highly visible role where you’ll be managing our Market Officers. Together, you’ll work to deliver high quality street trading services which meet our growth and economic aspirations. You’ll also deal with all sorts of stakeholders so you’ll need great people skills. After all, markets are places that never stand still. 

We’re also looking for a degree (or equivalent), knowledge of relevant legislation and leadership experience. If you’re also organised with budget management abilities, we’d like to hear from you. Apply now.
