(Mechanical) Engineering Design Manager

University of Hull - Estates - Project Management (Estates Services)

Campus: Hull

The role of the Estates Directorate is to support the University of Hull mission statement and ensure that we are sustainable in environmental, social and economic terms as well as being efficient, and represent value for money, with carbon management, space efficiency and quality of the estate being key factors. The department offers a range of services including Estates Management and Development, Maintenance, Cleaning, Portering and Security and is responsible for a range of over 71 University buildings both academic and residential totalling over 150,000 square metres.

The University is currently implementing a ‘step change’ across the whole institution, with an unprecedented increased capital investment plan into the estate, as well as modernising all systems processes and procedures. Within this exciting development plan, the Estates Directorate recognises a need to develop, modernise and standardise our approach to Mechanical and Electrical infrastructure to bring about energy/carbon efficiencies through improved project delivery, as well as provide improved student experience. In response to this, we are looking to develop our in house Services engineering capability, and are creating the role of Mechanical Engineering Design Manager.

The Mechanical Engineering Design Manager will report to the Assistant Director of Estates (Development), and work collaboratively with the Projects, Maintenance, Energy and Space Management Teams, to develop and standardise estates technical specifications and bring about improvements to capital project delivery.

Responsible for the Management, leadership, development and delivery of Engineering Design functions (Mechanical & Electrical) within the Development Team, the post holder will work with our current in house Electrical Engineering resource, as well as external consultant support.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record with a keen eye for detail. A relevant qualification is essential, as is proven management experience applying the principles and processes of project management. An effective approach to health and safety issues is desired, as well as the ability to ensure robust frameworks of risk management policies and procedures are in place. 

This is a great opportunity to join the Estates team at a very exciting time of development. 

For an informal discussion about this post please contact Paul Riley, Assistant Director of Estates, on 01482 462150 or email p.riley@hull.ac.uk.
