Are you looking for an exciting challenge? Changeworks is looking for a Head of Building
Contracts to lead on the delivery of a portfolio of building retrofit programmes and provide
technical support across the organisation.

In 2022 Changeworks launched our three year strategy to drive the organisation forward until
2025. The strategy focuses Changeworks’ efforts on a single objective – to spearhead the
decarbonisation of homes in Scotland. The Head of Buildings Contracts will play a key role in
driving our strategy forward.

You will lead the delivery of energy efficiency and decarbonisation projects across Scotland
including Local Authority Area Based Schemes and Social Housing Buildings Retrofit programmes.
Line managing the Buildings Contract Programme Management team and the Built Environment
Technical Team, you will direct the project teams and provide support to successfully deliver
projects. You will provide technical leadership on contractual compliance, project planning,
procurement, quality assurance, ISO 9001 and industry standards (PAS 2035). You will apply your
professional expertise and experience to manage and lead your team, providing support and
leadership with commercial management and service delivery. You will foster strong
relationships with clients, suppliers and subcontractors to ensure successful project delivery.

As a Senior Manager, you will play a strong and active role in leadership and growth of
Changeworks, engaging strategically across the organisation. You will contribute to
organisational planning and delivery, and will promote the vision, mission and value of
Changeworks both internally and externally. You will be joining Changeworks at a very exciting
time as we continue to drive forward our strategy to help us scale our work and achieve our
ambitious goal of accelerating the decarbonisation of homes across Scotland.

About you

Ideally, you will be qualified to degree level in a construction related subject or able to
demonstrate relevant experience. You will have experience in a construction related Project
Management role, a knowledge and application of construction contracts and an understanding of
PAS2030/2035. You will have a track record of excellent commercial management and extensive
experience in Forms of Contract (NEC and/or SBCC/JCT) within the construction industry and
major programmes environment.

About us

Changeworks is a great place to work. We hold Investors in People Platinum accreditation
(something only a few organisations in Scotland have), and we were nominated for employer of
the year by the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce this year. Our staff overwhelmingly would
recommend us as an employer too.

The Climate Emergency has resulted in ambitious national targets to reduce carbon emissions
from the built environment and reduce rates of fuel poverty. This has driven a significant
increase in the number of pilot and large-scale interventions delivered by Changeworks and
external organisations in this area. These include area-based domestic energy efficiency
retrofit and decarbonisation projects and programmes.

We are a growing organisation, and this role is crucial to the delivery of our ambitious
objectives. We want to decarbonise homes in Scotland on a massive scale, and that needs
talented individuals like you to help us deliver on our objectives. You’ll receive full
training plus coaching and mentoring.

We offer a wide range of staff benefits including flexible working, bike to work scheme, an
excellent pension scheme and 26 days paid holiday plus 9 public holidays per year.

At Changeworks, we welcome and encourage applications from everyone.
