We’re looking for three new team members to join us and project manage the technical aspects of our residential buildings from end to end, driving the delivery of our schemes on site, and make sure they are top quality that meet the needs of our customers.  We're also recruiting for a Building Services Engineer role too which will focus on residential electrical and mechanical aspects and systems.

A bit about you

You’ll have a degree or other relevant qualification and experience in Building Surveying or Building Services Engineering.  It would be brilliant if you were also a member of RICS or CIOB or CIBSE. You’ll have a genuine interest in surveying and construction, and particularly project delivery, with experience of contract administration, clerk of work duties, running schemes on site and delivering high quality products. You’ll be confident working to specifications, contracts and data, and keeping the project team up to speed.

Where you’ll work

It’s the team’s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours!

The role will require travelling to sites that might be quite spread out, but your diary will be yours to control and we’ll work with you to make sure everything gets done on time.  You’ll spend some time on the road as you visit sites, working from our regional offices or from home the rest of the time.
