Job ref: FB432236_1656403203

Girling Jones are working in partnership with a construction company known for their delivery of some of the most technically innovative and challenging projects across the UK

The Position

In short, they are looking for a Design Manager to join the existing technical team and ideally coming from a Tier One contracting company. You should have a focus on education and residential schemes, and expect to be based on site. Depending on suitability, this will either be in Bristol or Exeter

You will possess an excellent understanding of the application of design management, BIM (not essential but desired) and document control processes. Initially, you will be heavily involved in the pre-construction stages so must have experience in this area

Key Accountabilities

Reporting into the Head of Technical, the Design Manager role will encompass the following:

  • Management of the entire design process from initial identification through to handover
  • Design Review and appraisal (including identifying and mitigating design risks)
  • Consultant appointment, scope of services development and management of the appointment
  • Third party submissions (e.g. Building Control, Planning / Development Control)
  • Commercial awareness of construction projects

Essential Criteria

  • 5 years working for a main contractor, ideally on projects upwards from £20M
  • Qualified to Degree Level (Construction Related)
  • Exposure to working within a pre-construction environment is preferred
  • High Rise experience desired

The “Why”

Day in, day out, this successful contractor work hard to maintain their already excellent reputation. As well as this, they offer competitive basic salaries coupled with generous company benefits including:

  • 26 days annual leave increasing to 30 days
  • Group Personal Pension scheme
  • Life insurance (4x salary)
  • Private medical insurance

In these challenging economic times, it is more important than ever to move across to a business with a strong pipeline of work and that can offer you longer term security. With a tick in both these boxes, you’ll be silly not to at least make an enquiry

Girling Jones Ltd is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
