We invest ??200m annually on construction projects across our 6,000 trading, non-trading, residential, corporate and logistics properties so we can continue to make a difference for our members, customers and communities.

This role would suit people who have

• a passion for finding opportunities to improve processes and save costs
• an interest in driving a 'Circular Economy' - extending the life of materials and subsequently reducing construction waste
• excellent rapport building skills, able to gain trust from senior partners in the business
• good communication skills, able to challenge and influence across the business
• the ability to present data and findings and create dashboards, simply, to both technical and non-technical partners
