The University of Liverpool has ambitious plans for growth building on its reputation as a leading research institution and its Gold rated teaching excellence. We are rooted in the Liverpool City Region but international in character and outlook. Our purpose and values steer the way we wish to operate – fuelled by creativity and ambition and our collaboration with partners.
Our new strategy, Liverpool 2031, outlines our plans to harness our unique strengths and characteristics to secure a position among the top-100 universities globally in time for our 150th anniversary. Our vision is to be recognised for our globally leading research and education, the quality and scale of our partnerships, and our positive impact on people, our place and the planet.
Key to delivering this, we need to implement an estates strategy that involves reviewing and challenging the use of the estate so that we are able to improve the performance and condition of the property portfolio, tackle space utilisation, increase income and meet our sustainability goals. This will also involve change and transformation in our campus operating models, infrastructure and facilities.
Our Estate Masterplan articulates a clear and coherent long-term vision for our campuses so that they best support our strategic priorities; a vibrant environment aligned to the needs of a growing student population and one with the necessary digital infrastructure to support our community effectively. This includes approved Investment Zone priorities, a Materials Super Cluster and an Academic Health Sciences Campus.
Your remit is to ensure that property is a key strategic enabler in achieving our goal of being a top 100 University in the world University rankings. In delivering this you and your team will ensure that the estate and campus services functions remain financially viable, of high quality, attractive and inclusive – enhancing experience and making the campus a great place to live, work, study and innovate.
Extensive strategic level experience in leading a property portfolio and estates and facilities function in a complex service driven environment and a relevant professional qualification are essential. Your track record should include delivering transformational property developments, to target. However, key to your success will be a proven ability to engage with a wide range of stakeholders and build positive and successful relationships to ensure business objectives are met as well as possessing the leadership and personal skills required to lead and manage in a unionised environment.
