Senior Project Manager - Strategic Projects

A new and exciting opportunity to play a key role in the transformation and regeneration of assets, places, and local communities.

Join our Property and Development service and be part of an innovative and exciting team focusing on targeting, designing, and delivering important commercial developments and ventures; driving the delivery of the levelling up agenda, increasing housing supply, and generating new income growth across the sector to make lasting improvements to our places.

In your role as Senior Project Manager – Strategic Projects within the Development team, you will play a key part in the service, managing large scale capital property projects for a range of clients, covering new development (including housing delivery), asset regeneration and new investment. Your role will span the Councils and other organisations within the public sector.

You will provide project management services to a portfolio of large scale projects, including strategic asset rationalisation / redevelopments and grant funded capital schemes, taking projects from concept to completion. You will work closely with internal and external multi-disciplinary project teams, representatives from external public sector organisations and private developers to deliver projects on time and to budget.

You will be a pro-active, high performing, self-motivated individual with a strategic approach who is able to work under pressure and has experience of working in a project management environment, with a varied property portfolio and including the development of mixed-tenure schemes. You will have strong all round communication skills, with the ability to build positive working relationships within the organisation as well as with external strategic partners, clients, and stakeholders.

We are looking for someone who enjoys working in a busy and challenging environment. You must be a team player, working on your own initiatives and organising your own workload. Political awareness and understanding are essential, as you will be working with elected councillors, senior managers in the Councils and other organisations, members of the public and other key stakeholders.

If you want to make a difference within an exciting and growing service, working across two organisations, we’d love to hear from you.

A £5,000 market supplement is offered with this role, which will be reviewed on an annual basis.
