Closing date:

Sevenoaks SchoolSevenoaks, Kent

Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Permanent

The Role 

The masterplan is produced by a working party comprising a number of Governors, Trustees of Sevenoaks School Foundation and senior staff including the Head, Bursar and Director of Property. 

The scheduling and sequencing of the projects in the masterplan and large maintenance/refurbishment projects is agreed by the governing body, with advice from the Bursar and the Director of Finance. It is the responsibility of the Capital Projects Manager to manage the planning and execution of masterplan projects that have been given the green light by the governing body to proceed. In doing so the Capital Projects Manager will work closely with the Bursar. 

If and when time allows outside of progressing masterplan projects, the post holder will  also  support  the work of the Estates department by taking on the management of one or more of the larger maintenance or refurbishment projects. The post is advertised due to the upcoming retirement of the current post-holder, who previously served the school as Bursar. 

Main Responsibilities 

• Take over from the Bursar the management of the project to build the  £10m  new  boys boarding house, which is due for occupation in August 2019. 

• Take the lead in the post-project processes for the Science & Technology and Global Study Centre (the building which will be completed in the summer of 2018). 

• In forthcoming capital projects, and working closely with the Bursar, undertake work  connected  with   the   selection   and appointment of the architect and other members of the design team, and maintain excellent relationships with those appointed. This task would include the preparation of deeds of appointment, with the necessary support of the school’s  legal advisors.

Contract and Salary 

This is a full-time all-year round role based on 40 hours per week. Note that it will sometimes be necessary to undertake work outside of normal hours to help monitor extended or unusual activities on site (e.g. the early delivery of a crane to site), or to meet project or reporting deadlines. A competitive salary will be offered that is commensurate with the qualifications, skills and experience of the successful candidate.
