Built Environment Professionals Recruitment Modelling and Management – Soft Market Testing
1. Identifying a region outside of London and South East 2. Place a minimum of 22 build environment practitioners on placements of 12+ months.
We know that attracting and retaining property professionals with broad industry knowledge and expertise who can be deployed to work on other regeneration and housing growth initiatives are a significant barrier to housing delivery. We are looking to address these skills gaps pragmatically and build capacity in an effective and cost-efficient way within the local government sector. The purpose of this exercise is to test the market and understand if there are suppliers who can meet this challenge by designing a model, which after an initial injection of funding for set up costs, can become self-sustaining. The model must meet the requirements, outputs and milestones set out below, which in summary includes: 1. Identifying a region outside of London & South East 2. Place a minimum of 22 build environment practitioners on placements of 12+ months, 3. Developing a way of identifying potential Local Government Authorities (Authorities) placements and recruiting a cohort to place in roles within the selected region 4. Creating a learning and development programme to encourage the sharing of information across the candidates and Authorities in the region, 5. Devising a programme to support candidates through their placement lifecycle, and 6. Developing evaluation and success factors to monitor the project’s performance and success.
