Design Manager

The Company:

We are working with a leading contractor whose North West Regional Office has created an excellent reputation for delivering interesting projects for leading blue-chip clients valued to £40 Million.

They have excellent relationships with their clients that means they enjoy a good proportion of repeat, negotiated business.

Their senior management team are dynamic, knowledgeable and very approachable.

They are a real North West success story who have grown consistently over the last 5 years despite COVID's influence and already have a strong pipeline of work for 2024 and beyond in markets that are unlikely to be significantly affected if there is a downturn in the Construction Sector.

They typically make double digit margins on projects.

The Role:

Due to planned expansion they would like to recruit an experienced Design Manager to work with clients, appoint and work with design consultants, organised and chair design meetings up to RIBA Stage 4 or 5.
The initial project you would work on is a new build healthcare scheme.

You will project manage the design process.
You will be tasked with controlling design activity on projects through the pre-construction and delivery phases or they are open to someone focusing purely on pre-construction stages if preferred.
You will provide advice on design risk and opportunities for value engineering to the commercial, planning, delivery and client teams.
Once projects are on site you will ensure the delivery team are working to the specifications.


You will project manage the design process so someone who has site experience gained either as a Site/Project Manager with responsibility for managing design or someone already working as a Design Coordinator /Manager would have the skills and experience needed to be successful in this role.

You will be based in or be able to commute to Cheshire daily (the role is largely office based with site visits and home working is available and encouraged where practical).

Commercially aware with an understanding of value engineering.IT literate.

Good verbal and written communication skills.


You will receive a good salary and benefits package.

You will be working with a company who are a recognised market leader in their sectors and who can provide a challenging and supportive environment in which to work.

It is envisaged that the successful person can quickly take on additional responsibility with career development and progression opportunities readily available.
