Do you have experience of managing a variety of construction, refurbishment or property related projects from inception through to delivery and a real desire to work on some interesting and varied projects in a historic setting? Then make the move to the House of Commons Strategic Estates Project Delivery team.
Our Strategic Estates team takes great pride in looking after and improving the buildings of Parliament itself, as custodians of the Estate. While we are part of the House of Commons service, we provide services to the House of Lords too. We also operate on a working World Heritage site that attracts visitors from all over the globe, in a challenging stakeholder environment where conservation and the need to innovate and build for the future coincide. If you would like to play a key role meeting the needs of departments in the two Houses, as well as other interested parties that include project boards, clients and stakeholders, here's your chance.
You'll be joining the Project Delivery Team that's responsible for leading and delivering a wide variety of capital investment refurbishment, conservation and construction related projects to meet the needs of both Houses. Acting as the client representative and performing the "informed client" role, you'll proactively lead on the delivery of a diverse and exciting range of estate wide property, building refurbishment and conservation projects. And, as well as running your own projects, we'll rely on you to help develop programmes of work that manage the requirements of different clients within both Houses and provide vital support on some of the larger projects too.
Customer focused and confident dealing with people at all levels, you have a proven ability to manage various aspects of construction, refurbishment or property related projects. You're also used to developing briefs and a natural at organising project delivery on time and to budget and agreed quality standards. An awareness of change and contract management is important too, as is a flair for drafting robust business cases for estates and building related projects. And when it comes to setting and monitoring project cash flows, advising on scheduling control or overseeing risk and managing any issues, again, you have what it takes to deliver.
In addition to an attractive salary, the benefits package include the possibility of flexible working, while annual leave starts at 30 days per year. There are also subsidised canteens, a gym on-site and a season ticket loan scheme is available.
