Almost uniquely operating at a scale in self delivery of almost all the trades associated with housing refurbishment, means that we hold the resources internally which gives us greater control in being able to deliver what we say, when we say to our clients.

  • You will be expected to demonstrate what works are intended to be completed on a weekly basis.
  • You should be able to corelate the amount of work to the numbers of resources required to complete the intended volumes of work.
  • You will need to be able to forecast and monitor intended outputs and provide an update against our fundamental procedure document which charts the usual gant programme as a reflection of each operation numerically broken down for each week of the project.
  • You will be required to provide reports for the monthly external site meetings.
  • You will need to attend weekly internal site meetings.
  • You will report to the Regional Manager in your area.
  • You need excellent planning capabilities and be able to chart which labour and when they will be required to complete tasks.
