This role offers a unique and exciting opportunity for a talented construction professional to manage the commercial delivery of these projects from inception, through each stage of their development, procurement and construction to the final delivery and handover and even beyond in terms of whole life costings. The role is, therefore, a diverse one and includes providing commercial strategic advice and interacting with management at very senior levels across the prison service, as well as liaising with numerous stakeholders (internal, statutory, design team and others), as part of the implementation of the IPS prison infrastructure development strategy.
This newly established position will enable a motivated individual to play a pivotal role deploying commercial management skills and cost management methodologies to drive efficiency and where applicable, initiate corporate and/or organisational change, to ensure the IPS’s project cost and commercial objectives are met.
