Asset Programme Manager- Residential, Infrastructure and Leisure Assets

£55,439 - £67,313

SMR-A  
Fixed Term - Two years

This role will be pivotal in both the development of new leisure built assets through mixed use development and the ambitious acquisition programme. Both will work towards the Council’s work in Building a Fairer Newham.

Newham is an ambitious Council and we are proud of our commitment to collaborating with our residents and businesses to create flourishing places. Our Community Wealth Building agenda is underpinned by the principles of economic, social and environmental justice, to deliver long-term prosperity, wellbeing and fairness for all our residents.

The Council has a long term vision for ‘An Active Future for Newham’, inclusive of a commitment to develop a Leisure Infrastructure Plan to create the environment for a more active borough. Our ambition for a happier and healthier borough is articulated in our Health and Wellbeing Strategy ’ 50 Steps to a Healthier Newham – Newham Council’ which includes a dedicated chapter ‘Creating an active borough’ to support residents to be active.

Alongside this, the Council has an acquisition programme to complement our developments, supplying alternatives to temporary accommodation. It is an unashamedly ambitious programme to acquire housing in the private market, working with developers, investors and housing associations to contribute to further affordable housing within the borough.

About you

You will have experience of working on mixed-use, building refurbishment, acquisition or regeneration projects. You will have worked on “place”-led developments, with experience of delivering projects with strong project management and reporting skills.  This will include drafting internal project board reports and recommendations to Cabinet.

As you will be responsible for managing a number of project work streams, you will need to be highly organised and structured in your approach, with experience and demonstrable success in meeting deadlines and in client-side contract/consultant management, preferably for a local authority.

You will have experience of working closely with a range of internal and external stakeholders, including elected members, building strong collaborative relationships in order to deliver the best results for the Council and the community. Working on engagement, co-design exercises and consultation events, online and in-person, sometimes including weekends and evenings, will also be an important part of this role.

If you have the experience, skills and motivation to make a real difference to communities today and in the future, and to deliver great places, we would love to hear from you.

Closing date for applications is 26^th January 2023. Interviews will be held in February 2023.

If you have any queries about this important role, please contact: Sam Faulding, Head of Residential Property Acquisitions.
