CUH – Estates & Facilities are looking to appoint a dedicated individual to join the Capital Planning & Development Department as a Senior Project Manager within the Capital Projects Team.

Over recent years the wider team has successfully delivered a range of capital schemes including ward refurbishments, new operating theatres, replacement CT Scanners and Linear Accelerators. Your role within the team will be to lead the delivery on these types of multiple projects which have a starting value above £50k and can range to £4m.

You will have past experience of leading a project team, ideally in a healthcare environment, and have demonstrable experience of NHS capital and construction project management.

You will be experienced in procuring consultants, suppliers and building contractors and be used to managing these different external teams throughout the project lifecycle.

You will be responsible for leading design reviews and have a good working knowledge of the different stakeholders that need to be involved in order to deliver a capital scheme.

Communication is a key skill within project management. You will therefore need to have excellent written and verbal skills, be comfortable attending meetings and leading discussions and be personable to both maintain and develop relationships with key stakeholders, both internal and external.

Above all else, you must recognise that all the projects we deliver ultimately impact our patients, be it directly or indirectly, therefore care and attention to detail is paramount to ensure health and safety standards throughout the project lifecycle.

Interviews are due to be held week commencing 29th July 2019.
