Senior Management Recruitment
UCL Capital Programme
UCL is London’s leading multidisciplinary university, with more than 11,000 staff and 38,000 students from 150 different countries. Founded in 1826 in the heart of London, UCL was the first university in England to welcome students of any class, religion, and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men.
The UCL Estate comprises over 200 buildings valued in excess of £2 Billion, more than four million square feet of academic accommodation and c. 4000 student bedrooms. The scale, variety and complexity of the estate are unparalleled in the sector. UCL Estates manages the estate and facilities infrastructure from the strategic to the operational, across property acquisition and management, capital projects, engineering and maintenance, environmental sustainability, safety, security, cleaning and including student residences and central room bookings. UCL Estates strive to provide a co-ordinated and customer oriented approach to developing, maintaining and adapting UCL’s estate and a wide range of support services to create an environment which supports UCL’s academic mission.
The Key Aims of the Estates Strategy are: - Enabling the Academic Mission and supporting change - Transforming facilities fit for world leading research and excellence in teaching and learning - Delivering an excellent student and staff experience - Transparency, accountability, integrated service delivery with efficient and effective customer service - Good custodians of the Institution’s assets - Enabling a sustainable and safe university Over recent years, acquisitions and the integration of a number of Post Graduate Institutes (previously known as the Satellite Estate) has substantially increased the scale and complexity of the estate falling within the remit of the Division.
A recent restructure of the division has established two key Leadership Team positions: • Deputy Director of Estates/Director, Major Projects is responsible for delivering a number of key major projects including UCL’s new campus at Stratford (UCL East), Dementia Research Institute and Moorfield’s Eye Hospital. • Director, Estates Development is responsible for delivering a programme of key projects primarily within UCL’s central Bloomsbury campus but additionally with a number of partner organisations including hospitals and research bodies. Estates projects range in scale, complexity and value (£½m to £500m) and must be delivered to specification, cost and time, frequently within a highly congested and busy operational environment where quality of student and staff experience throughout the works is also critical.
UCL is engaged in a very extensive, long term capital programme, a critical component of UCL 2034 and in support of both UCL’s teaching and research strategies, which requires a significant professional Estates resource to ensure its successful delivery. Based on the requirements to deliver UCL’s projected £1.25 billion capital programme UCL Estates is embarking on a period of transformation to ensure that the Estates Development and Major Projects teams are resourced and organised in line with best practice and the scale of what needs to be achieved. It is essential that a robust, stable programme and project team is established which will build on-going capacity to ensure a depth of expertise and the sharing of good practice across all programmes. UCL Estates is therefore seeking to build an industry-leading
team of professionals with the capability, track record and drive to develop, deliver and mobilise projects that will deliver world-class facilities for London’s global University. The team will be developed to give both depth and breadth of resource, with project management professionals appointed at middle, senior and director level in addition to multidisciplinary appointments to give in-house intelligence and capability across space management, property, engineering, health & safety and project transition & mobilisation. UCL Estates places a very heavy emphasis on quality, safety, value and exceptional stakeholder engagement. We are therefore seeking best-in-class individuals that possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills and a flexible, collaborative, highly motivated and resilient disposition.
