Welcome Message from Steven Boyd, Chief Executive, Government Property Agency
Thank you for your interest in joining the Government Property Agency. It is an exciting time to join the Government Property Agency which is an Executive Agency of the Cabinet Office.
Several decades of inattention has led to the condition and utility of the Government's estate declining: it's quality is often poor and its management fragmented. The Government Property Agency has been created to change this. We are bringing the Government's office and warehouse estate together under single control across the whole of the United Kingdom to improve the experience of our people, enable improved civil service productivity, and save £ 1.4 Bn over 10 years. This is no small task, and to help us to be successful we need exceptional people.
If you have strong commercial acumen, great knowledge of property, and a desire to make a difference, we want to hear from you. I feel strongly that we not only need great individuals but we also need to build a great team of different backgrounds, perspectives and ways of thinking. Diverse teams are good for business, and we intend GPA to be a business of which we can be proud, and delivers for both Government and our people.
Our ambitions goes beyond consolidation and improvement of this very large estate. We are melding a commercial approach with civil service commitment. And we intend to push the envelope in customer-focussed design, sustainability, workplace experience, and using data for insight.
