Job Detail

Design Manager

Competitive salary

City of London, London, UK



Date Advertised:18th April 2019

Start Date:18th May 2019

Are you a Design Manager? Do you want to work for an exciting developer based in the City of London? Are you seeking to work on projects from £30 - £800 million? If so please read on....

My client are one of the largest Developers in Europe and have a strong London presence but are still growing and need to add to their current design team with the addition of a Design Manager. They generally work on commercial new build projects in Zones 1-4 with a build value on average of £80 million. However, they have a huge project kicking off in late 2019.

This role will be based on a £85m new build commercial office in London.

This client have a very fresh approach and buy land, usually demolish what's there and try to build something in it's place that is iconic and a better design. They have an in-house construction team who will build the project and therefore the ideal candidate will be somebody who can work on a project from inception to completion.

They have a very fresh way of working, dress down in the office, flexible working hours and like people that challenge the way they do things. They are always looking for new ideas and encourage all staff to bring in new ideas.

Duties will consist of:

  • Prepare project specific appointment documents including the scope of works / schedule of services
  • Deliver trade design packages on time and accurately.
  • Monitor current position against agreed design programme.
  • Organise and control the design development of the project in accordance with specification and the construction programme. Review and comment on the design.
  • Look at value engineering to help reduce costs.
  • Actively take part in regular design team and site meetings to progress site delivery.

The ideal candidate is somebody from a UK Main Contractor and who has experience of working on multi-million pound projects including Commercial Offices. Professional qualifications are also desirable.

I feel this is an excellent opportunity for either somebody looking at working for a very exciting developer or somebody just looking to expand their career while working on iconic projects. In my opinion there are not many companies with this much pipeline for the next 4-5 years.

If you would like to know more about the role and the company please apply for this role with your CV and I'll be in touch.
