The Company:

A leading Contractor/Developer whose NW Construction team would generally deliver larger projects that are typically apartments, commercial or mixed use.

They are a growing, dynamic business who put employee welfare at the forefront of their thinking at their inception and initiatives that they put in place are imaginative and really well received by their staff.

They have a number of high profile schemes on site and an impressive pipeline of work with their existing client base together with their own developments that means they now need to recruit at least one Senior Design Manager or Design Manager to supplement their small, experienced team.

The Position:

You will get the chance to work on schemes from inception, through preconstruction stages working closely with the other Senior Design Managers and Pre-Construction Manager before passing on to the delivery teams.

You will be tasked with controlling design activity through the RIBA pre-construction 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.

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

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


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

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

Commercially aware with an awareness of value engineering.

IT literate.

Good construction knowledge.

Good verbal and written communication skills. 


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, a really positive can-do attitude that is evident across the business and are adept at supporting new starters who join their team.

They have one of the strongest forward order books in the North West and employ industry experts.
