Job summary

Working in a team with Paul Ahdal and Ben Seccombe, our Head of and Assistant Director of Infrastructure Grants Project Management, the Senior Project Manager of Infrastructure grants will play a critical role in managing large and complex grant investments. You will be joining our experienced, multi-disciplinary team, who are committed to making positive change in supporting infrastructure delivery and unlocking hundreds of thousands of homes across England.

Job description

Our Senior Managers look after some of the largest funding investments Homes England makes (up to £250 million at a project level). These investments come with significant complexity, political interest and stakeholder management responsibilities. We are therefore looking for a mixture of technical skills, experience and a calm professional approach to getting work done.

 Ben believes in delivering a first-class customer service, resolving project delivery issues informally wherever possible by taking an innovative and creative approach. The team highly values and encourages working in a collaborative and flexible way to foster good decision making and problem solving.

 The Senior Project Manager of Infrastructure Grants will support the design and delivery of key strategic housing projects around England. There is some ambitious work and initiatives to get involved with and this is an excellent opportunity to balance day to day delivery whilst bringing innovative solutions to the infrastructure funding offering.

 This is a rare chance to shape the future of infrastructure and housing delivery in a national organisation with real social purpose. Working with key stakeholders and a professional team you will ensure efficient, consistent and effective resolution of complex contractual and delivery issues and the have the opportunity to help create new communities and places within the country.

Person specification

Whilst our day job is to deliver first class customer service to our stakeholders, you will be used to "spinning several plates" at once and will always be looking for ways to improve and innovate.

 You will be able to demonstrate how you can support the Infrastructure Grants business with complex project delivery issues, aiming to ensure that projects are performing in line with expectations. You will be proficient in project management, assurance and monitoring in the built environment and hold a relevant professional qualification in Project Management, Surveying, Planning, Engineering or Accountancy (or have significant relevant experience).

 Delivering on a mission as bold as ours isn’t always easy. You will be resilient and comfortable managing stakeholders at a senior level and your discussions will always be shaped by a good understanding of the commercial and operational impact of what we do as a team. You will enjoy working in an innovative, fun and engaging way and be able to negotiate and persuade.

 As an experienced project management professional, you’ll understand how to manage colleagues and be able to demonstrate you can work with others as part of a team in a collaborative, inclusive way.

 Having knowledge of the UK housing market, grant-based public sector programmes, property / infrastructure projects, contract management or analysis of project cashflows and appraisals would be very beneficial for the role.

 If you've got the relevant skills or experience and a passion for how housing delivery can improve the lives of people in the country, then we would like to learn more about you.
