What you will do in your working day

Working with our team of experienced Project Managers, you will support the delivery of projects across all areas of our business. You will observe your colleagues, learn from them and develop your own skills and knowledge enabling you to gradually take on elements of Project Management independently. Over time, the duties that you will be expected to undertake as a Project Manager are:

This will typically involve design, procurement, manufacturing, delivery, installation and commissioning phases
  • Produce detailed programmes of work and chair regular meetings with external customers and internal stakeholders to ensure all deadlines are met
  • Liaise with customers to understand any changes to their requirements and then convey them to our Technical/CAD departments to enable design/drawing revisions
  • Undertake thorough site surveys, obtaining information to enable detailed design work by our Technical/CAD departments. Once this has been done, return to site and prove our drawings prior to commencing manufacture
  • Communicate with our production and procurement departments to monitor progress and control costs through the project to ensure it is delivered on time and within budget, submitting regular financial and progress reports
  • Write detailed site-specific risk assessments and method statements, ensuring compliance with all necessary Health & Safety legislation
  • Manage our own installation teams and sub-contractors, attending site as required to monitor the quality and progress of our installations and obtain final sign-off/acceptance of our work
  • Submit interim project valuations, payment applications and invoice claims
  • Monitor and control change requests, submit pricing as required and obtain variation instructions from customers
  • Identify non-conformances, record them on our database and be proactive with leading lessons learned meetings/discussions to avoid recurrence
