We're looking for a forward- thinking Head of Delivery to provide leadership to the team to ensure it plays its role in in achieving these challenging, aspirational targets. As a senior leader in the Development Directorate, you'll manage a Regional Delivery team to deliver multiple projects within the current development programme.

You'll work closely with all Development streams on detailed proposals for new homes, ensuring they meet the objectives of the Growth Strategy, and you'll inform procurement strategies to achieve timely delivery and high quality homes.

We'll look to you to liaise with the Regeneration Team to ensure that consultation and decanting programmes are effectively managed, and with the Programme and Compliance Team, HCA and other funding agencies to manage the development programme across a range of tenures. You'll be responsible for ensuring Health & Safety, that programme reporting information is produced and that the building construction quality is monitored on site so that the new properties are efficiently handed over at the required standard.

Other responsibilities include:

  • Manage the delivery of the sales tenure programme to ensure it is delivered to agreed timescales, budget and the required quality standard; and liaise with the Sales Team to assist in ensuring their sales targets are achieved.
  • Ensure that all internal and external regulatory and compliance requirements are met.
  • Build and develop relationships with Developers, JV partners, Contractors, and Consultants, including Employers Agents, Architects, Site Inspectors, Engineers and any other specialists that may be required.
  • Working alongside commercial and finance colleagues, undertake financial risk assessments and produce reports for project and board approval.

Educated to degree level or equivalent, you'll have demonstrable knowledge of the development and delivery processes and a track record in budget management and interpreting complex financial information.

We're seeking professionals who thrive on leading a team of high performing, highly motivated individuals, with excellent interpersonal and presentation skills and a proven ability to communicate effectively to a wide range of audiences at all levels of an organisation.

If you're a development professional with a clear understanding of local, regional, and national development and growth priorities and a successful track record in the delivery of new developments, we very much look forward to hearing from you.

In return, we offer a highly competitive salary and car allowance, a Group Bonus Scheme and other benefits, including a defined contribution pension matched up to 7.5% and generous life assurance.
