Job descriptionDirector of Housing Projects - Zero Carbon Engineering
£75,000 + Bonus
PRS are pleased to be exclusively assigned to recruit for this Director of Housing Projects role within the Zero Carbon Engineering sector on Social Housing frameworks. In the role of Director of Housing Projects, you will be responsible for the delivery of projects that enable the zero-carbon transition to the client base of social housing providers.
We are recruiting for a Senior Engineer / Asset Management professional with expertise in large scale energy efficiency programmes in Social Housing. Supporting the client’s unique proposition connecting programmes to finance with responsibility for building the team and expanding sales.
The client is a technology company with a platform that enables social housing landlords to act with confidence and speed towards the goal of carbon net zero. They empower social landlords and technical consultants to configure and finance large scale energy improvement projects.
We are recruiting for a senior commercial role to build, manage and grow the client’s unique proposition for social landlords, undertaking business development and account management while strengthening our technical partnerships. This will require deep subject matter expertise and strong relationships fostered across the industry, as well as being an individual who embraces innovation – both strategically and operationally.
The Client are putting software in a place it has not been before, linking decarbonisation projects to insurance and finance so as to increase the speed and volume of activity that will prevent global warming and improve living conditions. Through the unique application of data driven engineering, risk analytics and insurance, the platform bridges between energy management and risk management.
The client is a young and dynamic company with big ambitions and are already working on a number of large-scale energy improvement projects with G15 social landlords. They have recently received investment from a global financial institution in order to consolidate their position in this market through scaling the unique product and team.
Our client’s wider team has expertise in engineering, financing, technology and insurance. The Director of Housing will manage a multicompetence team of sales executives, analysts and project managers, and you will have significant autonomy in recruitment. This team, together with the client’s partner network of technical consultants and technology providers, will deliver sales and revenue by enabling execution of large-scale projects and programmes for net zero transition. The client’s platform identifies viable projects across whole portfolios and connects them to finance, which is often the limiting factor. Clients are therefore approached, often with partners, and are presented a familiar package of solutions for large energy efficiency made easy through the software, however the client’s proposition for execution with guarantees and finance is unique.
Projects are delivered through the deployment of funded project vehicles. Ahead of such deployment the team will work closely with the Housing Association supporting data collection, through to business case development, procurement and structuring to achieve insured savings and fully funded works. A primary KPI for this role is to expedite the sales cycle from initial engagement to first project launch followed by converting further projects within the client portfolio.
