Design Manager

Our Client:
We are working with a Regional Building contractor who are well known for successfully delivering city centre based, technically challenging projects for a varied client base across the North West of England. This is a real meritocracy where ability and endeavour are rewarded both in terms of career progression opportunities and financial reward. They work with blue chip clients, have a supply chain that includes the best subcontractors in the North West (as they pay them on time and treat them fairly) and only take on projects where they make double digit margins.

The Role:
They now require an experienced Design Manager who is capable of leading the Design of significant projects based in Greater Manchester from initial enquiry through to project completion.
The initial focus is a large (£60 Million) Manchester based, concrete framed, multi-storey, mixed use project due to commence on site shortly.

You will be tasked with controlling design activity on projects through the pre-construction and delivery phases.
You will provide advice on design risk and opportunities for value engineering to the commercial, planning, delivery and client teams.
You will produce, agree and manage realistic design programs.
Once projects are on site you will ensure the delivery team are working to the specifications.

Ideally, they would like to recruit a Design Manager capable of leading the design on a project of this size and would also consider recruiting someone who is less experienced who they can progress into this role.

You will have worked in a Design Management role on building projects previously.
You will be based in or be able to commute to the North West of England daily.
You will have a consistent employment record.
Commercially aware with understanding of value engineering.
IT literacy.
Good verbal and written communication skills.

You will benefit from an excellent salary and benefits package, you will be working with a forward thinking, award winning contractor who can provide a challenging and supportive environment in which to work.
