We are looking for candidates with a strong understanding of the role of regeneration with experience of delivering major programmes which meet community needs. This includes a strong understanding of the many facets of regeneration, including community and stakeholder engagement, planning, options appraisals, financial modelling, technical due diligence and procurement.
