University Partnerships Programme (UPP) is the leading provider of on-campus student accommodation infrastructure and support services in the UK. We have more than 32,000 rooms under management or in construction through long-term partnerships with 15 leading UK universities. With over 800 employees, we work to deliver the very best student experiences, together with great universities. Our range of services includes; funding, design, build and operation university estates and infrastructure.
Having invested over £2billion to date, we intend to invest another £1billion delivering great services, in long term partnership with outstanding universities. As part of this investment and promise to deliver continued support services we are seeking to make the key appointment of a Post-Construction Services Manager to support the delivery of the post-construction phase of projects and to represent UPP’s interests in these matters.
The role will see you working closely with the Post-Construction Services Director, UPP’s Residential Services team, University Partner representatives and the responsible contractor on defects resolution and management of projects, predominately on the UPP University of Exeter portfolio but with the potential to work with other UPP Partners. The Post-Construction Services Manager will support the identification and remediation of any defects on projects whilst also taking responsibility for construction and refurbishment programme management during the defects liability period and beyond.
The successful candidate will possess a proven track record of leading the post-construction services on large scale construction projects married with a strong technical and commercial understanding of post-contract construction and defect management. Experience gained on projects in the student accommodation or residential sectors would be particularly advantageous.
You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills with a high level of personal and professional credibility, as a key aspect of the role is the capability to work successfully with a diverse range of internal and external stakeholders.
