Lead Design Manager

Lead Design Manager
Tier 1 Contractor
West Yorkshire
£65k - £70k + Competitive Package

The Company:

We are working with one of our favourite contractors who we have developed strong relations with over a 20 year period.

They have a very approachable and successful senior management team, secure the overwhelming majority of their projects through negotiation (they are good at what they do and tend to leave their clients pleased with their projects) and although they are one of the Top 20 Construction Groups in the UK they have the feel of a smaller family business where employees are valued and supported.

Typical projects are generally constructed for Private Sector clients and are generally either health, education or residential in nature valued to £30 Million.

The Role:

They would now like to recruit a Lead Design Manager to head up their highly regarded Regional Design team due to an excellent pipeline of projects due to start on site during 2020.
Generally, you will be tasked with controlling design activity on projects through the pre-construction and delivery phases.
You will provide advice on design risk and opportunities for value engineering to the commercial, planning, delivery and client teams.
You will be able to develop and present persuasive models.
You will produce, agree and manage realistic design programs.
Once projects are on site you will ensure the delivery team are working to the specifications and you'll typically oversee the work of a Document Controller and an Assistant Design Manager.

You:

You will have worked as a Design Manager / Senior Design Manager on construction projects similar to those mentioned above previously.
You will be based in or be able to commute to West Yorkshire daily.
Commercially aware with an understanding of value engineering.
Good verbal and written communication skills.

Rewards:

You will get the chance to work on land mark projects across the Yorkshire region.
You will receive a great salary package with extensive benefits.
The opportunity to work with an award winning, forward thinking organisation that have an excellent order book, very low staff turnover and provide an exciting environment in which to work.
They have an excellent career development programme with realistic potential to progress your career : I know this to be true as a number of people I've helped to join their business are now in elevated roles.

Candidates must be eligible to work within the UK.
