Hackney Council is passionate about its housing stock, and committed to continue to maintain and enhance its homes and estates in both the short term and into the future. The guiding principles for investment are defined in the Council’s new Housing Asset Management Strategy 2019-2027. This document also sets the ambitions for the quality of our varied housing stock, ranging from Victorian street properties and pre-war mansion blocks to tower blocks on large estates. This is an exciting time to join Hackney and contribute to the strategy’s aim of homes in which people want to live and are proud of.

Our Property and Asset Management service is changing to enable the team to achieve the delivery of the capital programmes necessary to achieve the ambitions set in the strategy.  We are looking for a Contract Delivery Manager who will lead on contract management of a portfolio of long term construction contracts, delivering capital investment of up to £50m per annum.  This is a demanding role and yet it comes with the opportunity to influence and inspire teams of multi-disciplined professionals to deliver a high quality service.

As a Contract Delivery Manager you will play a key role in delivering the capital works programmes ensuring that contractors operate and perform in accordance with contract conditions, and that planned programmes contribute to the council’s wider strategic objectives for its stock as set out in the Housing Asset Management Strategy, and particularly in areas of fire safety, energy efficiency, design standards and accessibility.  You will lead the contract management of a group of construction contracts, managing a team of project managers, customer relationship officers, technical support officers and quantity surveyors.

The successful candidate will have extensive experience in contract administration  of construction programmes, especially long term housing maintenance contracts.  They will have a track record of delivering to demanding targets on complex programmes, which also incorporate resident ambitions for their homes.  Importantly, the successful candidate will be passionate about social housing, will have sound knowledge of housing sustainability requirements and building regulations, will demonstrate the ability to lead staff by example, and work effectively within multi-disciplinary environments.

Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age and marital status.
