Job description

I’m working with one of the leading PLC house builders in Kent who are going through an exciting and sustained period of growth. Due to this success, the company is now looking for a Senior Technical Manager to join their team.

 

Reporting in to the Technical Director, you will be involved in a variety of low rise traditional housing developments across the Kent and the East Sussex locations. As Senior Technical Manager, you will be providing project management support across a variety of housing developments and overseeing the internal and external consultancy teams including Architects and Civil Engineers. You will also be providing support to internal customers to ensure these projects are delivered on time and within budget whilst maintain the highest build quality which the company prides its business on.

 

You will be involved in projects from inception through to completion and working closely with the land team on value engineering and having strong input into project viability appraisals on future sites. You will need to audit working drawing to ensure consistency and accuracy of information, making sure they comply with the strict UK building regulations and have strong management and leadership of design team meetings.

 

As Senior Technical Manager, you will oversee a small team of individuals including Technical Managers and Technical Coordinators across numerous sites so you will need to be a calm and collected individual who isn’t afraid to stand up and speak their mind as and when required.

 

You will ideally be degree qualified in Architecture or Engineering however other relevant property degrees or qualifications will also be considered. You MUST have at least 5 years’ relevant experience working for a residential house builder at a similar level or may be an experienced Technical Manager who is looking for a step up. We will also consider individuals from architectural practice who can demonstrate strong multi-unit, residential based experience and managing multi-disciplined teams of consultants.  You will have up to date working knowledge of current UK building regulations and NHBC guidelines and have strong understandings of CDM regulations.

You will be offered ongoing training and support and career progression is always on offer should you wish to take it as this is something the business prides itself on.

 

I would ideally like to speak to individuals living in Kent, East Sussex or the Surrey borders who are looking for their next step up in their career or a change of scenery. You may also be looking to work closer to home after becoming tired of that daily commute to London.
