The Role

Galanos House is an established care home in Warwickshire and a unique opportunity has arisen to project manage the development of a new Community Hub and a ten-bedded extension. The ideal candidate will have excellent planning and organising skills, and proven experience of previously managing projects. A project management qualification is not essential, as training can be provided.

This new and exciting role has primary responsibility for the overall planning, communication, risk management and delivery of the project, as well as monitoring, evaluation and relationship management with relevant stakeholders. Strong communication with senior managers and regular liaison with team members is essential to ensure that deadlines are met and problem solving is efficient and effective. The post-holder will ensure that the momentum of the project is maintained through hands-on project delivery and will also work with the Care Services Management Team in the development of a plan for the optimum utilization of the new Community Hub.

Separate project management will be brought in to manage the construction works. The Project Manager will report directly to the Assistant Director Operations – Care Services, Breaks & Recovery and will also be supported in their role by the Operations Portfolio Manager.

This post will be based in Birmingham and duties will entail regular travel to Warwickshire, London and some of our Regional Offices.

This role is fixed-term for 6 months with the possibility for extension to 12 months.

Interviews will be held in London on the 27th March 2018.
