A pioneering consultancy is on the lookout for a seasoned Construction Project Manager to spearhead their ambitious projects in the Custodial, Defence, and Education sectors.

This Bristol-based role is a unique opportunity for a Construction Project Manager to lead from the front, managing projects from inception, through feasibility and tendering, to on-site activities and finally, handover and post-completion phases.

The Construction Project Manager Role

The successful Construction Project Manager will operate independently, with the backing of a junior project manager for larger endeavours. You will be under the overarching guidance of the PM team leader and office partners, who are also experienced PMs. This role is not just about managing projects; it's about leading them, providing services under our Delivery Partner appointment with the Ministry of Justice, and embodying the role of a client-side project leader.

  • Compiling and presenting Business Cases to Boards for project approval and funding.
  • Implementing the Government Soft Landings approach for seamless project handovers.
  • Ensuring all government-funded schemes meet BREEAM assessment criteria for sustainability.

Typical projects range from £1M to £10M, with the opportunity to oversee capital works programs with individual project values up to £130M.
