We are currently one of the world’s top 100 universities – but we are determined to continue climbing the ranks. You will play an instrumental role in this by supporting construction projects which maintain and enhance the learning environment for our diverse student population, and the working environment for our staff.
You will manage the development, planning and implementation of construction projects and will be involved in the delivery of them at any stage in their lifecycle from inception through to close-out.
You will have excellent technical and communication skills, with the ability also to plan and manage your own workload. You will be a positive and proactive problem solver and have the ability to manage often conflicting priorities at the same time to ensure that work is delivered on time and to a high standard. You will be a strong team player, but also be self-sufficient and able to work independently.
You will be a professional member of the RICS, CIOB, RIBA or Institution of Structural Engineers (or alternatively very close to sitting the final assessment for full professional membership of your chosen professional body). A PRINCE2 Practitioner or equivalent, or traditional project management qualification is also considered desirable for the role. You will be able to build, manage and motivate project teams in a matrix management environment. You will be professional, clear thinking under pressure and act as a role model within the team.
We support a flexible approach to work, such as home or part-time working, as well as additional benefits that will make your life easier, such as a generous holiday allowance. We will support your long-term future too, with access to the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS), subsidised health and fitness facilities and a range of discounts. Furthermore, Southampton, at the centre of the south coast, is a fantastic place in which to live, work and socialise – so regardless of what life stage you are at, you will find a dynamic and vibrant city that caters for all.
We are proactive in fostering a culture of inclusion, respect and equality of opportunity. We select candidates on the basis of merit and ability and aspire to thrive in the diversity of our workforce. We welcome applications from all candidates with an interest in the role and those who are committed to helping us create an inclusive work environment. We encourage applications from candidates from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, people who identify as LGBTQ+; and people with disabilities.
