Following the successful completion of earlier phases, a leading national contractor is looking to appoint an experienced Senior Design Manager to join their team in Swansea, working on a number of multi-million pound new build student accommodation blocks.

The previously completed phases of accommodation and academic buildings are now fully occupied and operational with student and staff feedback being overwhelmingly positive as the new campus has sprung into life.

This latest phase of accommodation will bring the number of students at the new Campus to 2,000. It includes some academic and student service spaces on the ground floor of one of the blocks and supplements the newly completed phases 1 and 2 which already provide student services that include a bar, gym, restaurants, Tesco, bank, crèche, student support and facilities management space.

Your role will be providing commercial expertise on behalf of the Main Contractor, working with the client and reporting on contract commercial performance. Ideally you will have experience of working with a Top 10 Main Contractor.

Delivering projects to £30m across the Commercial, Mixed Use, Health, Student Accommodation, Leisure and Education sectors you will be working in an office and site based role and whilst your involvement will be at post contract stage, previous experience of working at the pre-construction phase would be advantageous.

Working closely with all parties, as the Senior Design Manager you will form an integral part of delivery team and add value through on-site design management, value engineering and information flow.

Possessing a comprehensive knowledge of the design process and building regulations you will have a flare for design, demonstrate excellent technical ability, be of strong character, capable of developing strong working relationships (with key members of the team, clients and sub-contractors) and compliment these abilities by being commercially astute.

This Senior Design Manager role is offering a basic salary of up to £75,000 p.a. with a comprehensive benefits package this is an excellent opportunity to further develop career.
