Construction Management Graduate

An exciting opportunity has arisen within a well established property development company specialising in housebuilding on a varied scale for a graduate with a degree in Construction Management/Project Management.

Working on projects ranging from small developments of exclusive homes to larger sites of multi-storey apartments, experience within the construction sector would be advantageous but you will be involved at every stage of a development and expected to liaise with various agencies throughout including (but not limited to) utility providers, local authorities, regulatory bodies, suppliers, contractors and the client.

The ideal candidate will be encouraged to develop their skills and abilities with genuine potential for career progression to a senior level.

The successful candidate will be responsible for managing and co-ordinating numerous construction projects at one time, liaising with various external organisations and being the key contact within the office working alongside the Contracts Manager and subcontractors based onsite.

The ideal candidate will have the following skills and experience:

* A genuine interest in the planning process and a willingness to listen and learn about planning conditions and gaining abilities to discharge them

* Detailed understanding of technical and regulatory requirements, including building control and warranty providers

* An adaptable nature as regulations and requirements change

* Project management skills

* A basic understanding of related disciplines including engineering, drainage, highways and utilities

* Excellent interpersonal skills, confident liaising at all levels and able to define clients' needs and ensure these are met as the project evolves

* Working knowledge of Microsoft Office and especially competent using Excel for forecasting and managing project budgets. CAD knowledge would be advantageous but not essential as this is not a design role.

* First class co-ordination skills supporting the Contracts Manager and escalating information to Director as required

* Solid communication and organisational skills including attention to detail and multi-tasking

The successful applicant must be charismatic and a strong team player, able to use initiative and work autonomously, whilst demonstrating a willingness to learn and progress. Of the utmost importance is accuracy as without fine attention to detail, mistakes can be costly, especially when they relate to measurements, dates etc, as these can be detrimental to more than one project.

A relevant formal qualification is essential as it is acknowledged that the suitable candidate may only have placement experience within the Sector.

This is a permanent role and the hours of work are Monday to Friday 8.00am - 5.00pm.

We offer a competitive salary range between GBP18k and GBP25k depending upon working industry experience. Immediate start available for the right person.
