Job Description

Design Manager

We have a wonderful career opportunity for an experienced Design Manager to join a stable, profitable and growing business that are making positive moves in the construction industry.

Due to continued growth, winning more work, and further repeat business this business is looking to add an Design Manager to their team. This business manages the complete lifecycle of a build project, including the civil engineering on site, through to the total build of the respective building. The majority of the projects they deliver are commercial and education buildings, and some leisure and retail.

Experience sought

Working in a team of 4 (including you), so teamwork, but also the ability to work independently is important.

Must have 5+ years' experience working as a Design Manager on design and build projects and be self-sufficient.

Must have a design and build background. You will need to understand the pre-construction and technical aspects of a project.

People that have worked for a top 30 main contractor will be in a stronger position, due to large teams and project values.

Need a deep understanding of a construction project. They want a person that is interested in design and the construction process.

Must have good contracts knowledge.

Prefer a good education = HNC or degree.

Most of their contracts are bespoke so not that fussed on forms of contract experience, but JCT forms of contract would be preferred if any.


Salary range is circa £45-65,000, plus a good benefits package. The benefits package includes a discretionary yearly bonus, car or car allowance (circa £4000), a fuel card, 25 days holiday, all travel and expenses paid, private health after 4 years' service and stakeholder pension.


This is flexible, but working in West London, Berkshire, Surrey, Buckinghamshire are the most likely locations that you would be based or prepared to locate yourself for work.

If you are interested in this position please apply through this website or contact Lewis Murphy or Bill Wynn at Project Resource.
