  • Manage the operational aspects of the project to achieve the budget
  • Review performance against targets and identify and manage potential risks and opportunities
  • Manage project handover and ensure defect /snag free completion
  • Achieve exemplary customer satisfaction through effective handover and aftercare.

What do you need?

  • Have previous Site Management experience within residential/housing development
  • Ability to manage and build effective teams, coaching and developing talent
  • Excellent communication and problem solving skills
  • Positive, adaptable and a ‘can do’ attitude
