The Trust expects the PM to start during November 2017 and work until completion of the project in December 2019. The workload for the PM is anticipated to vary significantly during that time with the bulk of the task taking place between November 2017 and Summer 2018. The project is assuming a workload equating to a 3-day week during the first 6 months, a 2-day week for the following 6 months and one day a week thereafter. Over 2 years (based on a 46-week year), the project is assuming the equivalent of 161 days’ work. The PM will be required to manage their time within this budget. The PM will be free to engage on other work but will be expected to work regularly on the Crofton project and to be available to staff, contractors and other stakeholders at all times.

The Trust intends to offer the successful candidate a daily fee between £300 and £400 (ex VAT) depending on the candidate’s experience and skills.
