Within the Construction environment, think about buying materials, managing big projects, ensuring health and safety and customer service. At any given time, you’ll find us working on some circa 400 developments in both towns and rural areas across the UK, and every one poses unique challenges. Some are from scratch on brownfield sites; others see us adapting existing buildings, like old factories or disused hospitals.

  • Liaising with other internal departments, externals suppliers and partners to ensure the build programme is achieved
  • Helping in the monitoring of material levels on site to ensure the minimum amount of stock, but enough to ensure the site programme is met and all labour is efficiently employed
  • Ensuring that all plots are built to the highest standard of quality, and contribute to a high standard of overall presentation on site, at a minimum
  • To carry out some reporting of defects on IFix
  • Showing a good behavioural example in all aspects of health and safety, organisation, conduct, quality of work, and professionalism.
