Property & Asset Management Directorate

(permanent and two-year fixed term contracts)

The London Borough of Waltham Forest is fiercely ambitious, striving to make sure each and every one of our residents enjoys a quality life in London.

Effective Property and Asset Management is a key enabler of change and critical to the success of the council achieving its strategic aims. This is reflected through the service’s new structure which is being implemented by our new Director of Property and Asset Management.

To continue the service’s transformation, we are now recruiting to the new structure and are seeking forward-thinking and innovative professionals who’ll place Property and Asset Management at the heart of the council’s broader organisational change agenda.

Working on the Capital Delivery Team, an established professional programme and project management team leading on Education and Corporate capital schemes, you will play a critical part in the continued transformation of the council. The current ambitious capital budget for the council includes £40 million p.a. on sustaining our Education stock and providing future places, and a 5 year plan on corporate office, commercial and housing schemes in excess of £500 million.

As a Project Manager, you will be responsible for all aspects of construction projects with values from £200k up to £20 million from stage RIBA zero to seven. The projects will cover remedial works to operational properties, provision of new assets such as offices and libraries, and significant changes to existing operational bases such as our main depot.

About you

As the successful candidate you will manage projects through a team of internal and external consultants and contracted builders. As such, you will not less than 3 years practical experience of project management and ideally be Prince2 qualified.

Evidence of successful working with, supporting and influencing clients and stakeholders will be essential.

About us

Over the past few years, Waltham Forest has changed drastically as a place. Good schools, great parks, excellent culture facilities, mass regeneration and budding community entrepreneurship are making it a place that people want to call home.

Over that period of time, Waltham Forest as a council has also changed drastically, and despite the challenges of austerity, the organisation has seen its highest ever levels of resident satisfaction. As funding reductions continue, Waltham Forest is creating a council for the future.

Waltham Forest Council is an employer of choice. We offer a huge range of benefits to make working with us more than worthwhile. These include flexible working options, plus learning and development opportunities which will offer the chance to progress your career further. In addition, we offer some serious financial benefits including a defined benefit pension scheme whereby the Council pays more than double the employee’s contribution towards a pension payable on retirement.
