Job Details

The City of London Corporation is the City of opportunities, innovation, impact and change. We have professionals from all walks of life, doing jobs that can’t be done the same way anywhere else, helping London – and the UK economy – develop at an ever-increasing pace. If you’re looking for a role with real substance and meaning, you can find it here.

In this key leadership role, you’ll be responsible for the successful delivery of major works programmes throughout our social housing estates. Across residential properties and commercial spaces, you’ll be accountable for every aspect of capital and revenue projects – from procurement and contract award, through works delivery to completion.

Leading a team of surveyors, project managers, clerk of works, asset programme managers and asset monitoring officers, you’ll inspire high performance and drive development. We’ll look to you to ensure projects have the right resources, funding and governance arrangements. You will also be a valued expert voice on strategic asset management, and oversee large-scale investment programmes from planning to implementation.

A member of a relevant professional body, such as RICS, CIOB or APM, you have a demonstrable ability to lead, motivate and manage teams to deliver high standards of work. You will bring to the role extensive experience in managing major works, taking responsibility for everything from budget and reporting, to regulatory adherence, contracts and risk management.

Knowledge of strategic asset management principles, including BIM, informs the quality of the strategic advice you provide. We expect you to demonstrate the ability to establish productive partnerships and liaise effectively with a wide range of stakeholders, at all levels.

When it comes to valuing our people, we have one key goal: to be an excellent employer. We offer a wide range of development opportunities in this most diverse and challenging of organisations. In addition to a competitive salary and membership of the excellent Local Government Pension Scheme, you can look forward to an all-round package of life-improving benefits and offers – from interest-free season ticket and bicycle loans, to discounts on health and wellbeing, arts and culture.

Closing date: 12 noon on 4 June 2024.
