25 Nov Director – Head of Social Value
Excellent opportunity at Director level for a Social Value expert to lead on social impact, value measurement and reporting within commercial real estate.
We’re looking for a commercially minded individual who can engage with a plethora of property investors / owners and “frame” the product/service offering. Our client is already very active in the social sustainability space and they are now looking for someone who can help drive more advanced conversations around the social value agenda and take the product offering beyond a standardised measurement approach.
You’ll be working as part of a wider, expanding team operating at the heart of the net-zero and wider sustainability industry. The successful incumbent will be leading on the development and delivery of services in this area. You’ll work with the Head of Sustainability to build a service line that acts as a differentiator for the business.
Applicants should have a deep understanding of issues such as:
- social impact and value measurement and reporting in the context of commercial real estate;
- the development and delivery of social value action plans at the property and portfolio level;
- customer and community engagement;
- health and well-being
A natural communicator, you will possess a strong ability to build positive working relationships with a wide range of people.
Applicants will ideally have experience of commercial real estate but we will be open to considering candidates from outside of the CRE sector that have strong social value and sustainability credentials and who can demonstrate a commercial aptitude.
You’ll be able to alternate between thinking and operating at a strategic level and working at a detailed technical level; possess excellent negotiation, communication and persuasion skills, with ability to co-ordinate projects that require input from large numbers of client, colleagues and supplier staff, and be able to work under minimal supervision in a rigorous manner to deliver accurate, high quality, engaging and client ready outputs e.g. written and data reports.
Please note that we will endeavour to review your application within two weeks and, if there is interest in your candidacy, a Consultant will be in touch. Unfortunately, due to the significant amount of applications we receive, we are unable to provide individual feedback so if you have not heard from us within two weeks, please consider your application unsuccessful. Thank you for your interest.
