Head of Capital Projects 

Permanent; Full-Time

Closing Date: 22 February 2021

Haileybury is an outstanding British independent co-educational boarding school, offering modern boarding and day provision for nine hundred boys and girls aged 11-18. Established in 1862, we are situated on a glorious, historic 500-acre campus in Hertfordshire, just 20 miles north of London and 35 miles south of Cambridge, with an extensive portfolio of properties, including buildings with listed buildings status and approximately 120 residential properties.

Haileybury has completed a process of establishing a 15-20 year site development masterplan and is looking for a Head of Capital Projects to be responsible for the co-ordination and delivery of capital projects.

The successful candidate will have relevant project management experience in construction. A background in the Education sector is helpful but candidates from other sectors are also encouraged to apply.

The post holder will be required to work 37.5 hours per weeks. The nature of a 24hr a day, 7 days per week boarding school requires staff to work flexibly and there may be a requirement for the jobholder to work reasonable additional hours and early mornings, evenings and weekends.
