London & South East Education Group is seeking to recruit to the role of Director of Capital and Strategic Projects.

London & South East Education Group was formed in 2018, bringing together Further and Higher Education, together with a Multi-Academy Trust and an Apprenticeship company.  The Group is now a leading provider of Education across London and the South East for over 13,000 learners, and has aspirations for both growth whilst holding our existing provision to increasing standards.

From the Alternative and Special provision offered by our schools in our Academies Trust, to vocational courses of all levels in our College Corporation to degrees and professional qualifications as part of our Higher Education provision, we make educational accessible to everyone across the region, whatever their age, ability or interest.

We are on a journey of transforming our Estate to support our ambitious plans and as part of this investment are seeking to appoint a Director of Capital and Strategic Projects.

Reporting to the Group Chief Strategy Officer, the Director of Capital and Strategic Projects will lead the delivery of the Group’s capital programme, as well as playing a key role in the evolution and executing of the Estates Strategy, ensuring that the Estate supports the Group’s strategy and growth plans and is inspiring, sustainable and fit for purpose.

The successful candidate will have demonstrable experience of leading the delivery of capital programmes across a diverse and complex estate portfolio.  The postholder lead on strategic estates planning, therefore masterplanning, asset management and space management experience would be advantageous.   The role calls for an individual with excellent stakeholder management skills, and who is highly motivated, positive and resilient.
