Hours per week: 36

Contract type: Permanent

About Us:

At Westminster City Council, we want to make our city an unrivalled place of choice and aspiration, where the connections we build among our teams, our residents, our businesses and our visitors grow ever stronger. Everyone who lives, works or visits here plays their part in, and benefits from, our borough’s continued success.

The Role:

As a council, we’re responsible for the upkeep of the borough’s public realm. In this role, you’ll work with a diverse range of service providers and stakeholders, including landowners and developers, to co-ordinate and deliver a range of public realm infrastructure and improvement projects up to the value of £10m.

The pressures and challenges of working for the public realm in Westminster are unique; you’ll need to balance the demands of visitors, workers and residents. This is a great opportunity to play your part in improving, influencing and shaping projects that will make a real difference to everyone who lives, works and visits our iconic capital city.

About You:

You’re a graduate, or have equivalent experience, and you can show evidence of continued professional, managerial and personal development. In addition, you’ll show:

• Demonstrable expertise managing projects and programmes in the Highways and Infrastructure sector.

• Substantial experience managing large service contracts and building supplier relationships.

• Successful management of large budgets.

• Excellent communication skills – strong in influencing and collaborating with a wide range of stakeholders.

What We Offer:

We’re proud of the fantastic work culture and workplace environment we have at Westminster City Council. So, as well as having the opportunity to influence, develop and deliver public realm projects that will shape our city for decades, you’ll also enjoy flexible working, a new office in central London, and a wealth of training and professional development programmes.

The Council and its partners are committed to achieving diverse shortlists for all vacancies at Band 4 or above to support our desire to increase the number of staff from underrepresented groups in our workforce. If you are from a black, Asian or minority ethnic background (BAME), we invite you to self-declare this to the hiring manager as part of our positive action commitments.
