  • Oxford

About the Company:

My client is a privately owned Main Contractor that undertakes projects across a variety of construction sectors, including Research and Development, Commercial, Manufacturing, Automotive, Healthcare, and Education. Operating across such a diverse spectrum of sectors has enabled them to move with – and adapt to – changing market trends, which has resulted in controlled growth for the business.

Sustained growth is aided by the fact that a large proportion of this company’s work is awarded on a repeat-order basis from an extensive and ever-growing base of blue-chip clients.

My client has a turnover of £200 million and currently employs 300 people across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, and Cambridgeshire. The majority of my client’s work is within Cambridge however they have started expanding into the Oxfordshire region, turning over £50 million from Oxford alone.

About the Role:

Our client is looking for an Assistant Design Manager/ Design coordinator to support the design team based in Oxford. The role is site-based, however, during Tenders, the ability to travel to the Oxford office on occasion will be required.

The ideal candidate will have experience in delivering projects between £5M and £40M across the commercial, educational, and High spec residential sectors often in challenging city environments. You will be involved with a wide range of projects across all stages of pre-construction and project delivery.

My client is open to background and will consider candidates from an architectural background. However, someone from this background would need to be a project architect rather than a concept architect.
