A fantastic opportunity has arisen with one of our biggest residential developer clients who are responsible for developing multiple large scale, luxury central London apartments in enviable locations across the capital. You'll be responsible for managing, leading and motivating the internal production team, and report directly to the construction director. You'll also work closely with the land and planning team, helping to appraise the "buildability" on acquired sites, and assist the construction managers with developing construction programmes. Since you'll work throughout the whole project life cycle, not just delivery, a good understanding of design and planning would be useful as well as solid on site construction experience, and really understanding the pre-construction elements of development too. Ideally you'll have had previous exposure to managing small construction teams and experience of working on high density developments. The business pride themselves on hiring high calibre individuals, who are also genuinely nice people! Therefore, personality is really important, and this would suit an energetic and enthusiastic person, and someone who enjoys shaping the talent of more junior team members. You don't have to have managed huge teams, and this would be a great opportunity also for someone to take the next step in a managerial, client side role. Register at reed.co.uk
