The Agency is central to the delivery of key Government policies including moving 22,000 Civil Service roles out of London by 2030, contributing to the Net Zero agenda, and supporting Civil Service Reform by delivering working environments that support departments to adopt hybrid working. To do this we are delivering a major change programmes across the United Kingdom and consolidating our portfolio to save £1.4 Bn over 10 years.

With a responsibility for delivering the Government’s Estates Strategy we increasingly manage the Government’s property assets including delivering major programmes to construct and refurbish buildings supporting smarter working practices to improve productivity and well-being. Our vision is clear – to deliver a transformed, shared, sustainable and value for money estate.
With extensive experience in leading complex and large-scale new build and refurbishment commercial office projects, you will be responsible for leading the strategic direction for the Capital Projects team of 150 integrated GPA and strategic partner design and project management staff, and managing programmes of both new build and remodelling projects from conception to occupation.

You will also oversee standard setting for engineering design and look & feel to deliver high quality, sustainable and inclusive workplaces, the evaluation, appointment and management of developers, construction and fit out contractors to meet time, cost and quality targets, and to achieve excellent post occupation evaluation feedback.
