Create London is looking for a capital project manager to join its team in London.
Create London commissions socially engaged art, generous architecture and bold infrastructure that respond to civic needs and local contexts. We believe that transformative and radical ideas can derive from working long-term with local communities, providing inclusive moments for individuals to expand their imaginations, foster collective action and support thriving communities.
This is an exciting time to join Create London as we are about to embark on a new capital project, transforming an existing building to new cultural and creative uses following the success of A House for Artists – a project that recently won the Neave Brown Award for Social Housing, was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize and won the Housing Design Award 2023. Other recent Create London projects include the first public sculpture by Grayson Perry, the Turner Prize-winning Hackney Windrush sculpture by Veronica Ryan OBE (co-commissioned with Hackney Council) and artist playgrounds by Yinka Ilori and Eva Rothschild RA.
The role of capital project manager is to be responsible for the briefing, procurement, design and delivery of an 1880s warehouse in the London Borough of Newham. Following an open tender process, Create London recently secured the lease of the building and levelling up funding. Our ambition is to unlock the potential of this iconic local landmark and transform the building into a thriving and dynamic hub for creative workspaces, culture and community wellbeing. Working closely with Newham Council and local stakeholders, the capital project manager will lead the onsite day-to-day delivery of the project. You will be working closely with a wide team of consultants and specialists including architects, M&E, structural and civil engineers, QS, heritage and conservation consultant and engagement coordinators.
We are looking for a person with strong capital project management skills. The successful candidate will bring a positive can-do attitude and be able to manage multiple tasks and activities. As a keen problem-solver and an excellent communicator, the postholder needs to communicate with a wide variety of stakeholders to effectively meet overarching programme deadlines and navigate complexities across all phases of the capital project. The candidate will also monitor project budgets, oversee reporting to funders and chair project meetings.
Also essential is an appreciation of the fluid and responsive nature of a small arts organisation and willingness to contribute to an environment where creatives, audiences, staff and supporters feel valued and are encouraged to thrive.
