I found Stafffinders to very professional and prompt in both their interview advice and communications. Stafffinders contacted me three week ago with a vacancy they thought would be of interest and yesterday I was offered the job! I would definitely y recommend Stafffinders to others looking to further their career.
Construction Manager Jobs
Construction Managers supervise and direct people to make sure a building project is completed safely, on time and within budget. Construction Managers are responsible for developing a programme of work for the project, supervising the building work, making sure the site is safe and that there are good industrial relations and reporting on progress to the client who is paying for the work.
Construction Managers also supervise the preparation of the site and communicate with a wide range of people including the public and professionals such as architects, engineers, estimators, and surveyors. Construction Managers should have excellent interpersonal skills, be able to manage staff and subcontractors; be good at logistics, planning and problem-solving and like working outdoors in all weathers.
Construction Managers have to travel to sites and occasionally stay away from home. A large part of the work is done outdoors on site, in all kinds of weather. Work is usually with a construction company or a specialist sub-contractor. There are also opportunities with local building contractors, central and local government, utility companies, and large organisations such as major retailers.
The CIOB offers qualifications in Construction Site Supervision and Site Management at Levels 3 and 4. Level 5 in Construction Project Management is aimed at people already working as project managers. The CIOB can provide a list of organisations running these courses.
Experienced Construction Managers can become contract managers or directors of companies. It is possible to become self-employed, particularly in specialist areas of the work. There are also opportunities for Construction Managers in teaching and research and support services such as health and safety. The average salary for a Construction Manager is £40,000 a year.
