This central borough is going through an exciting period of change - and you can be a crucial part of this work. Quite simply, they are investing a huge amount of money in making this area better, healthier and more appealing. They want it to be a place that people are proud to call home, and an area that offers exciting leisure and work options - and the £3billion redevelopment of Elephant and Castle is just the start of that work. Working across projects such as the crucial regeneration of Old Kent Road which will include preserving heritage buildings and creating 20,000 new homes, they can offer an environment in which you will ultimately create social change for the vibrant community.
Specifically, you will design, develop, manage and maintain all structures in the public real (including, but not limited to highways structures) working to ensure everyone involved in these projects is working cohesively. Seeing to it that the works stay within financial constraints and are of the highest standards, you will be entrusted with a revenue of around £500,000 and a capital budget of up to £4million. Providing structural related expertise for the Council, you will promote safe working, always within the relevant regulations.

You’ll need:

• Experience of managing capital projects, with a degree or professional qualification to support this.
• A thorough understanding of how good quality design will impact on the regeneration of an area.
• To be confident managing consultation processes, with fantastic communication and technical presenting skills.
