The Ideal Candidate

This company are not as strict as a PLC and there is certainly less pressure. However, you HAVE to be a problem-solver. There is no design team to back you up so you will need to identify and resolve potential problems and have full accountability and autonomy in doing so. There is no blame culture at this company but you will have a steep learning curve.

Someone from a strong housing background from PLC or below level. Performance is important but character is equally important for this role and you must match company ethos as detailed above.

They are not looking for an ASM who knows everything but someone who is willing to adopt company policies and procedures and mould into the final product
