This role will lead and manage all technical aspects of the City Hall Relocation Programme, be responsible for managing the relationship with the main contractor appointed to undertake the Crystal reconfiguration works and provide professional advice to the Relocation Programme Director and other stakeholders as required. 

In October 2020 the Mayor of London took the decision to relocate City Hall from Tower Bridge in Southwark to the Royal Docks in Newham. The relocation will save the GLA Group £12m a year and help to energise the regeneration of the Royal Docks and raise its profile nationally and globally as a destination of choice for visitors and businesses while enriching the local community. 

Tower Bridge has been the home London Government for 20 years and relocating GLA and MOPAC staff, the London Assembly and the Mayor is complex and will incorporate a number of key workstreams, from news ways of working and contributing to the development of new policies required to facilitate a shift in culture and values to extensive stakeholder engagement and preparation of the Crystal Building for occupation by the autumn of 2021. This role represents a unique opportunity for someone with an understanding of, and ability to, operate successfully at a senior level in a complex organisation or political environment. 

We are looking for an experienced leader with extensive knowledge and practical experience of managing capital works projects, incorporating project control and budget management techniques.  Further information about the relocation of City Hall can be found here;

We are committed to being an inclusive employer and we are happy to consider flexible working arrangements. We would welcome applications from candidates who are seeking part time work as this role is open to job share.  

In addition to a good salary package, we offer an attractive range of benefits including 30 days’ annual leave, interest free season ticket loan, interest free bicycle loan and a career average pension scheme.
