Job Description

We're looking for a Senior Project Manager to lead a major transformation project at St George's Guildhall complex in King's Lynn. You'll lead an ambitious multi-disciplinary partnership project from concept stage through to delivery. You'll be responsible for delivering significant changes to the complex of historic buildings, which include the oldest and largest complete medieval Guildhall in England.

You'll work flexibly between council offices, from home, and on site in King's Lynn. As part of our regional team, you'll enjoy an extraordinary diversity of work, with knowledgeable and committed colleagues, fascinating places, a great support network including Building Surveyors, Estate Managers, Conservators, Curators and other specialists all on hand along with a sensible work life balance.

Working closely with the Borough Council of King's Lynn and West Norfolk you'll lead on all elements to develop the project from concept to completion.

You'll shape the delivery of the vision for the site, working alongside a highly engaged project board. This is a unique opportunity to lead a transformative cultural project, and a pivotal part of the £25 million vision for King's Lynn.

You'll liaise with external contractors, including architects, construction contractors, conservation specialists and regulatory bodies to develop the costed design scheme. You'll also work closely with specialists including a creative director, theatre historians and cultural consultants to support business, interpretation and activity planning and to unlock the potential for this unique historic asset.

You'll manage all aspects of the project delivery phase. You'll manage the main contract, delivering the project to scope and budget. You'll oversee multiple work-streams and ensure they are coordinated according to the overall project brief and programme and meet funders' requirements.

A key aspect of this project is engaging with, and building relationships with, stakeholders. You'll be engaging with partners, stakeholders, and the local community to consult closely as the project develops.

To be successful in this role you'll need:

  • Experience of successfully managing major, strategic, or complex projects in a multi-disciplinary environment
  • Proven track record of planning, leading, and delivering capital projects to scope, time, and quality
  • Excellent leadership and communication skills including the ability to manage and motivate project teams in complex situations
  • Strategic thinking skills with the ability to deal with ambiguity and complexity to shape the project and experience of dealing with constantly changing horizons
  • Experience of developing successful multi-million-pound funding applications and managing high level relationships with key funding partners such as National Lottery Heritage Fund
  • Sound experience of procuring, contracting and managing financial processes
  • In depth knowledge of stakeholder management process and techniques, evidenced through strong relationships internally and externally
  • Ability to influence and negotiate at all levels to achieve project goals
  • A Project Management qualification: APM PMQ; Chartered Project Management Professional ChPP, or equivalent. We will consider applicants who are working towards, or are willing to work towards, an equivalent qualification
