Head of Capital Projects and Housing Delivery
We are now seeking a Head of Capital Projects and Housing Delivery to lead a range of high-profile capital programmes, many of which are focused on new housing. Working closely with the Director of Social Investment and Property, and leading a team of project managers, you will be key to the successful delivery of these capital projects. From feasibility and land assembly, through legal and contractual negotiations, to successful handover, you will drive every aspect, offering both strategic direction and team motivation. You will also be the public face of these programmes, engaging closely with both residents and key stakeholders. By drawing together the talents, insights and expertise of many people, you will help to shape the future landscape of Kensington and Chelsea.
Holding a professional qualification such as RICS or CIOB, you will bring significant senior-level expertise in new housing and capital programme delivery, including experience of overseeing contracts and procurement. This is likely to be in a local authority or housing association context, as you will need to be ready to navigate our specific financial, legal and organisational challenges. A willingness to engage fully with local communities as well as contractors, council Members and other local government representatives is vital. You will therefore have the skills to negotiate, communicate and collaborate with a diverse range of people, along with genuine drive and motivation.
