Delivery Manager - North Worcestershire Economic Development & Regeneration*
A unique opportunity to play a leading role in the delivery of major regeneration projects in North Worcestershire supported by £70 million in external grant funding. The funding has been secured by NWedR in the past two years from the Future High Streets Fund, Towns Fund and the recently announced Levelling Up Fund and will support the delivery of major capital projects in Bromsgrove, Kidderminster and Redditch. The gross development value of the proposed projects exceeds £100 million.
We have a significant transformational agenda and the role offers the opportunity to work on projects ranging from new public realm initiatives through to providing new residential development, new flexible workspaces, digital innovation, commercial and cultural hubs. We already have a number of professional teams assisting this programme and are looking for the right individuals to take the lead and ensure that the projects are delivered on scope, time and to budget. You will be part of an agile newly created PMO supported by a cloud-based project management and collaboration platform to ensure efficient and seamless cooperation within and between project teams.
There are 3 positions for this role.
We are looking for regeneration and development professionals with a proven track record of delivering multimillion-pound projects from inception to completion, experience of managing multi-disciplinary teams and contractors and excellent project management skills and experience in the built environment. We are looking for someone who can hit the ground running and work with the wider team to deliver our ambitious plans. The role requires a ‘self-starter’ who is able to work on their own but is equally comfortable in creating strong relationships and partnerships, which will be key to delivering success.
