Are you looking for the chance to make a genuine impact on customers' lives and to really improve their experience?

The Role:

An exciting opportunity is available to join us as our Head of Investment, providing leadership in the areas of investment & contractor management. The Head of Investment will help to develop and implement robust capital investment programmes, successfully managing and monitoring Group spend, working collaboratively across the business on delivery strategies and associated plans and ensuring appropriate planning for the successful preparation and delivery of our investment schemes.

We are looking for someone to lead on the development and delivery of the investment programme including associated procurement, contractor engagement, internal trade-based delivery & management as well as accurate financial monitoring and reporting. The postholder will lead a team of over 100 colleagues whom they may call on for specialist support and delivery experience.  
As well as the delivery teams, you will be accountable for all technical support to the investment programme including surveying, specialist/professional design services and associated service and customer standards associated with our delivery programmes.

The Person:

We need a strong, charismatic, and confident professional to join us to ensure we continue to deliver excellence in respect of our investment delivery and continue to raise the bar in respect of direct works, contractor management, health and safety in the construction environment, partnering and associated investment delivery.

We would expect you to have a strong track record of managing and helping to shape investment programmes and direct management and development of professional colleagues within a property services or a contractor environment.  A skilled influencer and negotiator, you will need to be able to communicate effectively with external stakeholders, customers, colleagues and committee members.

The future is exciting, and we only want the best to be part of it.
