A great opportunity to be at the heart of the delivery of a premier business location in the North. The 144 hectare Blackpool Airport Enterprise Zone is well underway but we now need a talented, experienced, proactive and results driven Project Manager to help us to continue on this exciting journey.

You will be an integral part of the Growth & Prosperity team at Blackpool Council delivering one of the Fylde Coast’s priority development sites. The team is pushing the boundaries of public sector investment, challenging perceptions and promoting Blackpool and Fylde as a serious place for business. Collaboration is key to the successful implementation of Blackpool’s £1bn + regeneration programme that’s driving the region’s future economic growth.

Your all-round knowledge and experience in construction, engineering and commercial property will be essential and be used and extended as you lead and shape the delivery of more than £60m of direct investment over the next few years.

You will be a key member of a wonderfully committed and enthusiastic team from a range of development disciplines. Your role will include engagement with commercial businesses to identify requirements, preparation of development briefs, leadership of multi-disciplinary professional teams, project management of construction of buildings, roads and infrastructure, including aircraft hangars and taxiways and bespoke manufacturing facilities. You will also contribute to the EZ development strategy, programme management and day to day running of the Enterprise Zone team.

You will also have the opportunity to become involved with many of the Growth and Prosperity Team’s unique development projects alongside work on existing property portfolios, helping to attract and identify new development opportunities and seeing these through to completion.

If you have the skills, experience and passion to join us we would love to hear from you.
