Regional Programme Manager
Reference number: 248469
Salary: £50,694 - £57,654
Are you someone who enjoys autonomy, driving collaboration between stakeholders, and seeing tangible outcomes to your work? Do you want to work directly with public partners supporting a range of key Government priorities, including levelling up, economic recovery and helping communities to build back better?
If you have experience in a senior property role and are effective at building strong relationships to unblock barriers, influence stakeholders and offer challenge, then we’d love to hear from you.
You will work to oversee, support, and challenge local partnerships, proactively identifying opportunities for cross public sector property projects through the use of data, property information, strategic assessment and opportunities workshops. You will also act as a lead on strategic engagement with a number of central government departments, building relationships, holding partners to account and helping to deliver the Government Property Strategy.
As part of the One Public Estate programme, you will work in a blended team across the Office of Government Property and the Local Government Association, supporting ambitious cross-public sector property projects that create local economic growth, integrate public services and drive efficiency savings. You will continue our place-based approach, supporting projects that make a difference for local communities and central Government as well as supporting the delivery of the Government Property Strategy.
We’re looking for candidates who can demonstrate strong leadership and are comfortable working with a high degree of autonomy.
You will need experience of working at a senior level across the public sector and an understanding of the operational and political environment that influences central and local government estate and local economic strategies.
You will be working closely with senior leaders and will need to be effective at building strong relationships to unblock barriers, influence stakeholders, offer appropriate challenge and lead collaborative partnerships.
We have a diverse mix of skills across our team which includes housing, planning, economic development, valuation, and programme and project management professionals.
In return, we’ll offer you a supportive environment to grow your skills and experience, with a clear portfolio of responsibilities that will support your leadership development. We will listen to your ambitions, make best use of your experience and encourage and support relevant professional development.
The postholder will need to be flexible in their working pattern and travel arrangements due to the nature of this role. Aligned to the wider location strategy, the post holders will be based in York with some travel across the region, and occasional travel to OGP’s head office in London. Please discuss this with the vacancy holder if you have any queries.
