Business Manager - Council Priorities and Assets - PUB162

Cirencester/remote working available

Do you have experience in project delivery and asset management?…

The delivery of a programme of projects addressing our partner Councils priorities will utilise existing specialists in these fields already employed by Publica, supported by consultants but experience in asset management and coordinating challenging projects involving multiple partners and to tight deadlines, will be essential. Experience in the individual specialisms embedded within these priorities is desirable.

About the role…

We have an exciting opportunity for a Business Manager who will ensure the delivery of the top priority projects identified by Councils in their Corporate Plans, with management responsibility for the Assets (Property & Estates) and Climate Change functions. 

You will be accountable for ensuring key deliverables are agreed with Councils, effective project structures are put in place and project delivery is managed effectively, reporting on performance against agreed targets and outcomes, key milestones and budgets.  You will work closely with a range of services internally to ensure relevant specialisms are brought into each project and there is true corporate engagement.  By liaising with external partners, consultants and contractors you will ensure a clear planned public engagement and communication strategy is embedded and delivered for each project.

You will need to fully explore the opportunities to achieve multiple benefits through a single project, which contribute towards more than one priority, such as zero carbon social housing.
This role will focus on helping our partner councils deliver their priorities through effective asset management including property development, acquisitions and disposals.  It will also drive actions that will deliver against climate change strategies; assessing how we might deliver additional affordable homes, support the local economy, and develop investment proposals, as well as supporting the councils with the modernisation and improvement of services.

This is a replacement role covering the Cotswolds, Forest of Dean and West Oxfordshire.  These beautiful areas are famous for quintessentially English market towns and villages built from honey-coloured stone and the rich outdoor environment of the Forest of Dean. Within the Districts, there are plenty of places to see and visit and a great range of outdoor activities such as hiking and cycling.
