Project Manager (Asset Management)
This is demanding role and yet it comes with the opportunity to influence and inspire significant teams of multi-disciplined professionals to deliver a high quality service. With several contracts and contractors in place this needs sound and reliable project management from experienced and robust project managers that seek to consistently deliver outstanding results.
Reporting directly to their dedicated contract manager, our project managers are key to the delivery of multi-million pound programmes of planned works all across the Borough.
The range and breadth of the activity will be extensive and challenging. Directly managing principle contractors (delivery teams), liaising with clerk of works, designers, and various other departments with the Borough, as well as engaging with our residents and dealing with complaints, will be essential, as will be the strict control of our contractual terms and their adherence. We seek highly competent and engaging Managers that understand various forms of project management and differing delivery models that ensure we achieve work delivery and best value.
The successful candidate will have extensive experience of refurbishment projects within housing in addition to experience in leading on programme/cost management of large scale housing capital projects/ programmes either from the Client or from the construction professional aspect, including experience of 'design and build' constructors.
A professional qualification in Project Management or evidence of continuing professional development is desirable.
