A rare opportunity has arisen to join the Suffolk County Council (SCC) Assets and Investment team as a Property Transformation Co-ordinator, working from Ipswich.
- Are you an experienced programme manager?
- Do you have recent experience of working with transformational property projects?
- Do you want to make a positive difference to the way in which public services are provided in Suffolk?
We are looking for someone who can bring creative thinking, excellent organisational and communication skills to initiate and oversee change projects and programmes, enabling modern integrated services and effective use of the Council's estate.
You will play a lead role in:
- identifying the need and potential for change and improvement
- leading change programmes and delivery of complex property projects
- managing partner and stakeholder involvement in collaborative projects.
You will be part of a small team working closely on a wide range of important projects. As a key member of the team, you will need to work both collaboratively and independently, within a supportive environment.
Your responsibilities will include:
- managing projects and programmes that contribute to the Council's and the Suffolk System's major organisational change, transformation programmes and ongoing operations

- work closely with senior stakeholders across the organisation and the wider Suffolk system to bring about delivery of projects.
You will need:
- to be educated to a high qualification, ideally degree level

- a wide range of interesting and rewarding challenges
- a supportive and friendly environment.
