About us 
We’re Abri, a housing association based in the south of England. One of the largest in fact. We've got 35,000 homes and 1,500 colleagues. And if all our 80,000 residents lived in the same place, we’d have a town roughly the size of Guildford. 
We’re a passionate bunch. We think we can make a real difference. Homelessness, poverty, inequality, a lack of affordable housing. They’re all linked. They’re issues that affect so many, young and old alike. And we don’t think that’s right. We want to give people the chance to dream big and be who they want to be. Homes are at the heart of everybody’s lives. And we exist to help make good homes, and good lives a reality for everyone. 
About you 
We’ve all got different backgrounds, strengths and experiences. But we share the same values. It’s these shared values that bring us together as one team. 
Our colleagues embrace these every day. Be the difference to our customers and colleagues, always curious and look for better solutions, achieve together by working in partnership with others, own it openly through working with others in an open and honest way, and finally embrace possibility and see changes and challenges as welcomed opportunities. 
If you share our values and want to make a real difference in the world, you’re on to a winner and we’d love to hear from you!  
Your new role 
We’re looking for a new Site Manager to join our Development team managing in house new build site activities! 
You’ll be supervising site operations and ensuring new build projects are completed safely, to specifications, statutory requirements, within agreed timeframes and to a high quality.

It’s very important that you are working safely according to Health & Safety legislation and good site safety practices ensuring the safety of the team and site workers. 

No two days will be the same in this role so enthusiasm, a can-do attitude and a genuine passion for always wanting to go the extra mile will be essential.

Your day to day will include: 

  • To manage sub-contractors and directly employed trades operatives when they are on site ensuring they produce quality work to agreed specifications ensuring materials are available when needed.
  • To plan the logistical delivery of materials and labour

  • To ensure site documentation is up to date, accurate and available for inspection by relevant parties at any time.

You’ll be an excellent communicator: confident, clear and assertive when necessary. But most of all we hope you will be as passionate about excellence as we are.
