Project Manager

Location: Workington

Business Area: Kier Capital Projects

Contract: Full time, Initial 9 Month Fixed Term Contract

Building Futures. Building Teams. Building Careers.

The Capital Projects Team work on refurbishment and new build construction projects across the Blue Light, Health, Education, Retail, Commercial & Residential sectors with values up to £15 million on a national basis. The activities we undertake range from the design and delivery of complex refurbishment and new build projects up to the value of £15m, where we are able to utilise our team's broad skills base, through to small regional projects for valued customers. Projects can include new build, extensions, refurbishments, fit-outs, FRA works, and cladding works.

Kier Places are recruiting for an experienced Project Manager to join our passionate Capital Projects Team. With our diverse portfolio of projects, we are looking for an individual who has a passion for the project at hand, and securing work, whilst also being able to work as part of a closely knit team that has the opportunity to develop and control its own destiny. We understand this approach is essential to ensure we consistently win work and secure repeat business.

Key Responsibilities

In your new role as a Project Manager, we will look to you to be responsible for managing multiple projects at a time and on budget; for the project planning and programming of the works; health and safety on site; client liaison; ensuring KPIs and deadlines are met by your team; and the overall delivery of the programme. You will also oversee the coordination of operatives, subcontractors and suppliers in a planned and controlled manner ensuring efficiency and minimising costs.

What do we need from you?

We want you to apply today if you have a proven track record of delivering external & internal refurbishment projects within a construction maintenance or design and build construction environment. You will have an ability to programme work streams on your own accord (MS Projects, ASTA, Excel); and have relevant qualifications such as SMSTS, CSCS, First Aid, as well as qualifications related to Construction or Engineering, and Project Management.

What will you receive?

You can expect a competitive salary and an outstanding package that includes a matched pension scheme up to 7.5%, 26 days’ annual leave + bank holidays (with the opportunity to buy or sell holiday), two employee Share Scheme options (ShareSave and SIP/Share Incentive Plan), together with additional valuable benefits such as:

* One professional membership fee reimbursement
* Free Life Assurance + option for extra self-cover or for your partner
* Flexible and Agile working (dependent on your role)
* Critical Illness, Dental, Personal Accident, and Travel Insurance options
* Health care cash plan
* 24/7 Virtual GP Service, Wellbeing, and Employee Assistance Programme
* Access to Kier Rewards, our exclusive Discount Shopping Site with deals available at over 800 retailers, including restaurants, travel providers, and supermarkets
* Plus, many more benefits geared to your wellbeing

Pre-employment checks

It’s worth remembering that if you are successful, we’ll undertake the relevant / standard pre-employment checks after you have been offered a job. This includes taking up your references, verifying your right to work in the UK, verifying your driving licence (if applicable) and a health assessment.

Due to the nature of this role, you will also be required to complete a Basic Disclosure and Barring Service Check (applicants with criminal convictions will be treated on a case by case basis. We do not discriminate based on an applicant’s criminal record or the details of any offences disclosed to us). Some roles may also be subject to further pre-employment checks.

Being part of Kier means living our values of being Collaborative, Trusted and Focused. We all have the potential to shape our world, and it’s through these values that we will leave a lasting legacy.
