You will be an experienced Project Manager with a proven track record in the development and delivery of large-scale capital civils within this field, including property and digital infrastructure.  You will be adept and experienced in contract management, preferably NEC4 and managing large budgets in excess of £3million. These are complex and diverse projects that will require you to have significant experience of working in a partnership environment and managing a variety of different stakeholders.
