My client, a London borough council, are looking for someone to lead the project management of two high profile projects for their Homes division. This is a 6- 9 month fixed term appointment.

1. Procurement

We have a capital programme of £150M over the next 5 years for our planned and day to day maintenance. Plus a new build programme that may be 100 homes a year.

At present we use other organisations frameworks and tenders through construction line, to procure contractors and consultants. But for next and following years programmes we want to have our own " open " frameworks in place for contractors , architects , contract administrators and specialist consultants .

This role will lead on this with the Head of Procurement and Director of Investment and Development and help develop the strategy as well as deliver the procurement.

2. Taking Control Project

This is an innovative project that will put Lewisham Homes in control of the materials and component specification for all its investment and new build programmes. The approach to specifying materials /components will be based on:

• The lifecycle of the materials/ components ; and based on an NPV calculation

• Aesthetics

To achieve this we will need:

• A tool kit for assessing the points above
• The chosen products specified in our employers requirements and other documents
• To purchase product direct from Manufacturers
• Our own, or a partner, merchant in Lewisham so as our in house repairs team and external contractors can get the products over the counter

This role will lead on setting up this project and report directly to the Director of Investment and Development. There is already an internal project team set up and we are in the process of recruiting a Quantity Surveyor to work full time on this.

3. Skills and Experience Required

We are looking for someone with:

• A track record of leading the project management of high profile projects
• Knowledge of construction related procurement
• Ability to develop financial and performance analysis
