Keele University is a world class campus-based university committed to providing the highest quality learning and living environment in which our students and staff can flourish. Keele is renowned for its exciting approach to higher education, beautiful campus, strong community spirit and excellent student life.

With a turnover in excess of £150 million, over 10,000 students and a total staff of approximately 2,000, the University provides high quality teaching across a wide range of academic and vocational subjects. Keele has ambitious plans for its future growth and development, building upon its reputation as a research-led campus University with a broad academic base.

Keele has embarked on an ambitious capital development programme that will see investment of over £350m into the University Estate over the next 5-10 years.

The successful candidate will possess significant experience of leading technically complex estate development projects in a client side or client’s consultant project management role. You will have a high degree of commercial acumen, with the ability to monitor and report on development progress from both a design, programme and contractual perspective.

It is essential that the successful candidate possesses excellent interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to work successfully with a diverse range of stakeholders across a large, complex organisation. Experience of having worked on major capital projects in the education, healthcare, science, commercial and/or student accommodation development schemes would be particularly advantageous.
