We are looking for a Senior Design and Technical Manager to join our existing team in our Counties Region. This is an exceptional opportunity for an experienced construction sector professional seeking to continue to advance their career in an expanding regional business.

This position requires a Manager who is delivery and action focussed, can identify risks and deliver effective solutions with minimal supervision to ensure delivery on-time in a fast-paced demanding environment.
You will deliver results through your experience, effective time-management and progress your projects against plan, finding contingencies and solutions to avoid any slippage to the achievement of the result. Your ability to understand projects, rapidly taking into account the financial and commercial context, will be a prerequisite.
