Director of Estates & Facilities

Lead our innovative estates and facilities management department and join a university renowned for creating a culture of excellence focused on enhancing the student experience.

Anglia Ruskin is a modern, globally engaged university that is built upon very solid regional roots. We've once again been named as one of the top 350 institutions in the world in The Times Higher Education's World University Rankings 2018.  We aim to transform lives through innovative, inclusive and entrepreneurial education and research.

The Anglia Ruskin Estate has been extensively redeveloped and expanded at all campuses over the last 25 years.  We have built over 33,000 m2 (gross internal area) of new buildings over the past 10 years (including over 5,000 m2 off campus in Harlow, Peterborough and Colchester).  With the launch of our new Strategy, Designing our Future 2017 – 2026, we have ambitious plans to further invest in our environment with new masterplans for the Cambridge and Chelmsford campuses and £200m in further investment.

Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, the Director of Estates and Facilities will be responsible for the delivery of a customer centred estates and facilities management service that play an integral role in supporting the University’s strategic and operational priorities.  You will take strategic leadership responsibility for the development and management of the University’s Physical Environment and will inspire and manage a diverse team spanning the areas of capital programme delivery, estates maintenance, facilities management and space & asset management.

We are seeking an exceptional leader with a proven track record of developing and implementing property strategies across comparably large scale, diverse and technically complex portfolios.  A natural collaborator, you will possess the interpersonal, communication and stakeholder management skills to succeed in a leading University.

Closing date for applications is 7th October 2018.
