The Company:



We are working with a leading national contractor whose North West Regional Office has created a great reputation for delivering varied and interesting projects for clients based in the North West of England.

They have excellent relationships with their clients that means they enjoy a good proportion of repeat, negotiated business and are also members of a number of key public sector, procurement frameworks.

They are cash rich, typically make double digit margins on their projects, have an excellent supply chain who they pay promptly and treat with respect (we know this from our own experience of working with them!), staff turnover is incredibly low and their Glassdoor rating is among the best in the industry.



The Position:



They are now in a position to add an Assistant Design Manager to their Regional Design team as they have an excellent pipeline of projects that have either started on site or are due to start throughout the course of 2022.

The initial project is a truly iconic new build development based in central Manchester.

Working with a highly experienced Senior Design Manager you will be tasked with controlling design activity through the rest of the pre-construction phase and through delivery.

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.

Attend design meetings with the client, their representatives, consultants and supply chain.

Once projects are on site you will ensure the delivery team are working to the specifications. 



You:



Ideally, you will have worked as an Assistant Design Manager/Coordinator previously on building projects of a significant size and will have either a construction or an architectural qualification and / or background.

They'd also be keen to hear from anyone working in a Site Management role who is looking for a new challenge in Design Management and can support and help with this transition. 

You will be based in or be able to commute to Manchester daily.

Commercially aware with an awareness of value engineering.

IT literate and good administration skills.

Good verbal and written communication skills. 



Rewards:



If successful you will be joining a small close knit design team working in a profitable regional office.

They offer a good salary and benefits package, and are securing varied and significant, eye catching projects.

They have a good employee development programme and are adept at supporting new starters who join their team.

They have one of the strongest forward order books in the North West, are part of a major Construction Services Group and are in an excellent financial position that is one of the best in the UK.
