DESIGN MANAGER - SITE-BASED

Are you a team-player looking to work for a family-run main contractor who have operated in the industry for over 60 years?

My client is looking for a hands-on, career-driven individual looking for their next big move. You will be an experienced Design Manager looking to apply your innovative skills on architecturally-challenging projects throughout the North West including York, and Cumbria.

The successful candidate will report directly to Head of Operations, working alongside a team on a wide variety of high value projects including commercial, education, health, industrial, and residential.

What are we looking for?
You'll be comfortable managing the design process using commercial, contractual, programme/time awareness and technical expertise.
You will be the type of person who will want to provide leadership, training, and guidance to design co-ordinators.
You will précis, review, and report on design programmes and provide technical support on the bid process.
You will be confident in being able to advise the client on the requirements and obligations in the development of a building design.
You will be able to ensure the design process recognises current legislation, standards and codes of practice where appropriate.
Making sure that the design information is of the right quality, and keeps pace with project timescales will form an integral part of how you work.
Your work will eliminate health and safety risks in the design, and limit financial risks during construction.

The ideal candidate will have the following;
• Minimum of 5 years' experience working as a Design Manager or Coordinator and a background with a main contractor
• Excellent communication skills with a good standard of written and spoken English.
• Ideally HND or Degree qualified in a relevant construction discipline
