Chief Executive Officer

There can be few more interesting and challenging leadership roles at this historic, exciting and challenging time for the UK than that of CEO of the Government Property Agency (GPA). The successful candidate will influence and shape the strategic direction of government property with transformative outputs and expected benefits over a 10 year period approaching £3 billion.

The GPA was created in early 2018 to drive a step change in the way that the Central Government non-specialist estate is managed. The GPA is delivering best-in-class property and workplace solutions across government, via a new commercially driven approach to land and property asset management, realising more value than departments can deliver on their own. Mirroring a commercial property organisation, and through a portfolio approach to property asset management (asset value over the first three years is ca. £13.1bn, with annual operating costs of £4.2bn), returns are being maximised and waste minimised through rationalisation opportunities.

Beyond shaping the government property agenda, the CEO will have the rare chance to help build and shape an early stage government agency. S/he will implement the overall strategy and policy for the GPA, leading a strong team and promoting a collaborative culture internally and across government.

If you are a very experienced transformational leader, this is a challenge you’ll not want to miss!
