The Company:

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 success story who have grown this year despite COVID's influence and have a pipeline of work leading in to 2021 and beyond.

  • 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. 

As this is a relatively small organisation you will have the opportunity to gain experience within other areas of the construction process and they can offer the chance for you to move into other fields if desired.

You:
