We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated Capital Projects Manager to join our highly skilled projects team. You will support the team by leading in the delivery of a variety of projects across the Trust.

As a capital projects team, we lead on the delivery of clinical and non-clinical refurbishment and new build projects across the Trust. We do this through providing support and guidance to key project stakeholders in delivering their requirements for strategic change across all sites and through all project stages, understanding their requirements and developing these into exceptional built facilities for healthcare.

We seek to continuously improve our project delivery service through team experience, feedback, learning, and being open to innovative and effective solutions to project delivery, while providing exceptional customer focussed service and support.

We are dedicated to being an outstanding place to work and will work with you to get the best experience. We know flexible working is not a one size fits all and will mean something different to everyone. We are inclusive, so if you are interested in flexible working, please speak to the recruiting manager.

Main duties of the job

The Capital Project Manager will, using their knowledge, skills and experience, deliver projects across all project stages at all Trust sites, engaging with and supporting internal and external stakeholders in the delivery of the projects.

You will lead design teams, the financial and programme management of projects, advising and supporting in funding and other approvals and take responsibility for leading projects to handover and operational completion.

You will ensure all project processes are followed, establish and oversee efficient project administrative systems aligning with all Trust policies and procedures so that we can deliver a compliant and professional project delivery service for the Trust. A strong customer service attitude and collaborative approach is key.

In return, we will develop your skills, knowledge and experience with formal and on-the-job training as mutually identified.

Your primary base will be Canary Wharf. However, you will be required to be based at other Trust sites and there is also flexibility for you to work from home where appropriate.
