The Salvation Army moves to Kings Hill
Following a two-year review of its operation, The Salvation Army has moved its South East Divisional Headquarters to Kings Hill, Kent. The new offices at 11 Tower View now house The South East Division and The West Malling Service Centre which together employ 35 staff whose role includes providing pastoral care, operational and mission support to local branches of the church and charity.
“The Salvation Army spent two years evaluating every aspect of its mission service in order to be better equipped to provide support to our church ministers and communities in the UK and Ireland,” said Divisional Commander Major Mark Herbert.
“We transformed how we allocate resources so that we can be more effective and creative in delivering relevant and vibrant ministry to every generation, and in offering services based on local needs.”
The move is also the result of recent expansion from 20 staff to a combined total of 35, some of whom are peripatetic staff working across the London and South East Divisions.
Andrew Blevins, managing director of Kings Hill developer Liberty Property Trust, said: “We are delighted that The Salvation Army chose Kings Hill for its overall package of quality office space, amenities for its staff and excellent transport links – so vital to the important work it does in the community.”
Altus Group, Hanover Green and Knight Frank acted for the landlord and Lambert Smith Hampton for the tenant.
