Currently the team is working remotely. Once COVID restrictions ease, you'll be based out of one of our regional hubs. In addition, travel to Trust properties in the regions you serve will also be required as will occasional trips to our Head Office in Swindon.
What you'll be doing
We are looking for an experienced programme manager to lead a group of projects to deliver capital investment across our regions/properties. The projects will span a range of topics, initially, Car Parks, Paths & Trails, Adaptive Re-use of estate buildings, and Access & other improvements in support of our Everyone Welcome objective. The role is pan-regional and so there will be a large group of stakeholders to manage and lots of lessons to learn & apply. The role will involve recruiting and leading a team, building pipelines of capex investment opportunities, defining specific relationships with all stakeholders and overseeing delivery of capex expenditure through your project managers in a complex stakeholder environment.

Professionally qualified in project/programme management you will have experience of successfully delivering end to end project/programme management including defining resources, securing project teams and matrix management. You will be able to demonstrate that you can work on your own initiative and be comfortable working in a geographically dispersed matrix environment supporting several projects and programmes at any one time. In addition, you will possess excellent communication, problem solving and influencing skills and be confident liaising with Senior Leaders. Prior experience delivering programmes/projects of capital investment is essential.
