WELCOME TO THE UNIVERSITY OF READING
Dear Applicant, Thank you for your interest in the Senior Project Lead post at the University of Reading.
This is the perfect time to join us as we are embarking on an ambitious estate strategy that builds on the great improvements delivered to our estate over the last 10 years and heralds the start of a new era of change for the University and its estate. It reinforces the importance of providing good quality, flexible accommodation of the right scale and with the right facilities, to accommodate our research and teaching programmes. The ability to provide an enhanced and positive student experience from our research, teaching and recreational facilities is central to the success of the University. We recognise the ever increasing importance of the University estate to attracting and retaining the best student, research, teaching and staff, who in turn are credited with giving the University its world class status and reputation for research and teaching excellence. It is only right that we seek to provide them with accommodation & facilities that help them maintain and build on that reputation. The principal aim of this strategy is to provide the framework and direction for how the estate needs to change and support the University in delivering its strategic objectives. Central to this framework is the development of communities and environments where our students and staff will wish to live and work in the future across our exceptional campus setting. We also recognise that we are part of a wider society and need to integrate with other partner organisations and communities and will, for example, make the most of shared facilities as appropriate. At the same time, sustainability continues to be at the heart of the estate planning and management processes: as we strive to build on our excellent reputation for environmental performance. As a member of the senior delivery team within the Estates & Facilities department you will play a significant role in our future success.
