£60k-£70k plus package


About this Role:

Experienced Project Manager required by the Hampshire South Coast office of this busy main contractor, initially to work as No2 to the PD on a large new build, multi-storey student accommodation scheme in Southampton; this project has commenced on site.

Reporting to the Project Director, and working with the Site team, you will be responsible for managing the construction and logistics elements of the project through to handover in 2019.  The scheme is currently in the early stages of the RC frame construction, with internals due to start shortly, with a separate PM responsible for this element.

The project is a design and build contract, on a tight brownfield site within Southampton city centre. 

Challenges include the restricted access of the site and the fast track nature of the construction, so detailed planning and coordination for all phases of work plus the site deliveries and logistics is critical.

The role will involve regular client liaison, construction methodology, sequencing and programming of works, raising TQs and RFIs with the Design Manager and managing the flow of information, health and safety, quality control, input to procurement, identifying and mitigating potential risks, issue resolution, and ensuring delivery of the scheme on specification, programme and budget. 

Previous experience of working on a fast track high rise accommodation project would be highly advantageous.

You will lead your team holding ultimate responsibility for the smooth and timely progress construction on site throughout.

About the Company/Client/Project:

This role is with the busy regional office of a Southern main contractor group, with a turnover in excess of £80m, and secured workload in the education, retirement home, commercial, industrial, and retail sectors in the Hampshire and Dorset areas.

Projects range in size from the smaller £5m up the £30m in value.  This is an ideal opportunity for an experienced PM looking to work regionally, or potentially an experienced and ambitious SSM looking to formally make the step up to PM.

Requirements including certificates and qualifications:

You will be an experienced Project Manager, or ambitious Senior Site Manage with a proven track record within an established main contracting organisation, demonstrating the ability to deliver D&B schemes up to £20-25m+.  Key attributes will include excellent client, design team and site team management ability, technical, contractual and commercial knowledge, plus focus and drive.

High standards, attention to detail and the drive will be very well rewarded with excellent salary, benefits, promotional and development prospects.
