We're looking for an Assistant Project Manager on behalf of a privately owned construction and property consultancy. Whilst being part of a multinational group of companies operating globally, the Birmingham office is relatively new and still very much growing. The small team in Birmingham has been very successful so far and this new opportunity is a result of their expanding workload.
Whilst overall the office works on projects for a variety of clients, this role will initially focus on the successful delivery of a programme of office fitouts for a client in central government. The work is varied and fast paced and will be good experience for someone at an earlier stage in their career. You would be working directly with a Senior Project Manager to deliver a range of projects concurrently and would have the opportunity in due course to be able to deliver smaller projects from start to completion. Beyond this programme of works the team also has instructions on larger projects in other sectors such as healthcare.
You will need to have gained a recent degree in a relevant subject such as Construction Project Management or similar and ideally 1-2 years construction project management experience since graduating or whilst studying. Any experience gained on the NEC form of contract would be a bonus but the main thing is that you have a good understanding of the construction process from inception to completion and good project management methodology. You must be able to undertake some travelling as site visits will also be part of the role.
