The School has a cosmopolitan student body, with around 11,000 full time students from 148 countries and staff of just over 3,000, with about 46 per cent drawn from countries outside the UK.

The LSE Estates Division is responsible for development and implementation of the LSE Estates Strategy supporting the School's strategic objectives.  The Estates Capital Development team has enjoyed unprecedented success in recent years, with acclaimed major projects gaining Stirling award nominations and the Team winning various ‘client of the year’ accolades.

The Principal Project Manager will take up the enviable opportunity to lead the delivery of a major new development project for the LSE, with a project budget in excess of £100m.  You will join at the outset of the construction programme and take the chance to lead what is anticipated to be an award-winning building project through to successful completion and occupation.

We are seeking individuals with a proven track record in leading the delivery of large-scale, complex construction projects throughout the project lifecycle in a client-side project management role.  You will have exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, with a highly proactive and communicative style and the confidence to engage successfully throughout the project team and internal stakeholder groups.  Experience of delivering major projects with development partners would be advantageous.

The role offers an individual the opportunity to progress their career within a team that is recognised as being industry-leading on a high-profile major project in the heart of London.  The LSE offers a range of staff benefits including a generous annual leave entitlement and pension scheme as well as excellent training and development opportunities.
