Project Manager - Construction

We are a disability confident employer and we particularly encourage applications from BAME and female applicants as we are currently under represented in these areas

About us: An opportunity has arisen for two Project Manager (Construction) roles within the University’s Estates Projects team. The team oversees the delivery of alterations, small and large refurbishments, as well as major new capital developments. The main focus of the job is to provide high quality project management for the implementation and delivery of a range of key complex and/or major capital projects within the University’s Capital Development programme. In addition to delivering the estate objectives the project priorities also include health and safety, sustainability, wellbeing, Digital construction and softlandings.

About you: You will have experience of working with multi-disciplinary teams on technically complex construction projects and be able to direct the team in order to achieve the University’s development strategy. You will be confident at communicating and negotiating at all levels and have the drive and enthusiasm to deliver projects from initial concept through design, specification, planning, tender preparation and evaluation to the supervision of construction completion and occupation.

Working as part of a motivated, friendly and engaging team you will be able to contribute to and support the future development of the estate and industry innovations.
