Salary to £75k, with excellent benefits including generous pension scheme and 43 days annual leave plus public holidays
London & South East Education Group was formed in 2018, bringing together Further and Higher Education, together with a Multi-Academy Trust and an Apprenticeship company. The Group is now a leading provider of Education across London and the South East for over 13,000 learners, and has aspirations for both growth whilst holding our existing provision to increasing standards.
From the Alternative and Special provision offered by our schools in our Academies Trust, to vocational courses of all levels in our College Corporation to degrees and professional qualifications as part of our Higher Education provision, we make educational accessible to everyone across the region, whatever their age, ability or interest.
Serving learners to enable our education provision across 17 sites (75,000sqm) to be open, operational safe and compliant, whilst delivering capital reinvestment and renewal projects (currently £70m) is our core function in estates. We are rationalising our estate... we are building whole new colleges... we are extending our schools... we are driving environmental sustainability... and we are of course maximising our income to reinvest in our existing buildings through a long-term masterplan lens – it’s an exciting time! We are on a journey of transforming our Estate team to support our ambitious plans and as part of this investment are seeking to appoint an Assistant Director: Capital and Strategic Projects.
Reporting to the Group Director of Estates, the Assistant Director: Capital and Strategic Projects will lead the delivery of the Group’s capital programme, as well as playing a key role in the evolution and executing of the Estates Strategy, ensuring that the Estate supports the Group’s strategy and growth plans and is inspiring, sustainable and fit for purpose.
The successful candidate will have demonstrable experience of leading the delivery of capital programmes across a diverse and complex estate portfolio. The postholder will work with the Group Director of Estates on strategic estates planning, therefore masterplanning, asset management and space management experience would be advantageous. The role calls for an individual with excellent stakeholder management skills, and who is highly motivated, positive and resilient.
