The Vacancy

Want a job that makes a difference? Paradigm have set an objective to ensure all its homes achieve a minimum energy efficiency rating of EPC band C by 2030 and deliver homes to net zero carbon emissions by 2050. To achieve these objectives Paradigm will be undertaking energy efficiency retrofit works to many of its homes over the next 7 years. The type of projects will range from single measures to whole house retrofit.

You will have project management responsibility to ensure that retrofit projects are delivered in full compliance to PAS 2035:2019, and to budget and time. You will oversee the delivery of these projects the majority of which will be carried out by external contractors and where necessary specialist consultants will also be employed.

You will be required to provide a professional project management service, from inception through to post contract evaluation to ensure that the retrofit works are successfully delivered to agreed key performance outcomes.

You will work closely with the Asset Decarbonisation Manager to identify suitable properties for retrofit works and develop programmes of works for contractors. You will also work with the Customer Engagement Manager to ensure that our customers are fully engaged and supported while the energy efficiency retrofit works are carried out to their homes.

Our Team: Our Asset Management Strategy Team are expert and committed property management specialists. They specialise in reviewing and delivering Paradigm’s asset management strategies. One of the key priorities is improving the energy efficiency of our housing stock and ensuring we set in place plans for the delivery of net zero carbon by 2050 in line with the Government’s national strategy to address the climate change emergency. Within the Asset Management Strategy Team, we have an Asset Decarbonisation Manager who will manage a small team working with consultants and contractors to deliver the decarbonisation strategy to meet corporate and national objectives. You will be part of this team focussing on ensuring the successful delivery of the retrofit projects to PAS 2035.

Supporting the Customer Liaison Manager, you will attend some meetings with customers to discuss proposed retrofit projects as well as engaging with them during the works.

About You: You will have experience of managing complex investment projects to social housing properties and have the skills, knowledge and experience to bring dynamic and collaborative project management to the delivery of energy efficiency retrofit improvements to a range of archetypes in Paradigm’s housing portfolio.

Having previous experience of delivering energy efficiency retrofit projects would be an advantage, however, for those with no experience there will be an opportunity as part of personal development to undertake training on PAS 2035 which could lead to a recognise qualification energy efficiency retrofit.

You will have excellent communication skills and you will need to be extremely organised and self-motivated, as you will be working independently to manage your own workload. You will have the ability to plan your work in a logical way, able to work well under pressure and to tight deadlines.

You will enjoy working collaboratively to achieve outcomes within programme timeframes, to the high standards expected and within budget.
