Project Director - Commercial Fit-Out

"Calling All Self-Starters: Spearhead Our Client's Manchester Expansion"

(phone number removed) + Excellent Benefits


Are you an ambitious project management professional with a knack for business development? Do you thrive in start-up environments where your impact is tangible, and your autonomy is uncompromised? Our client is seeking a self-driven Project Director to establish and grow their brand-new office in the heart of Manchester.

The Role:

As the Project Director, you'll drive their expansion into one of the UK's most vibrant commercial markets.

From day one, you'll leverage your extensive network to secure immediate projects and tenders, focusing on commercial office fit-outs ranging from 250,000 to 1 million. This is your chance to bring your existing client relationships and ongoing projects to a company that values your entrepreneurial spirit.

More than just a project manager, you'll wear multiple hats - business developer, financial controller, and team leader. You'll oversee projects from inception to completion, ensuring they're delivered on time, within budget, and to the highest quality standards.

With your expertise in surveying, pricing, procurement, and commercial management, you'll run the Manchester office as an independent profit and loss centre, driving its profitability from the ground up.

As the business grows, you'll be able to build and mentor your team, fostering a collaborative and high-performance culture. The company's supportive yet autonomous environment will allow you to make your mark, free from micromanagement and bureaucracy.

About You:

To excel in this role, you'll need a proven track record in managing Cat A and B commercial fit-out projects.

Your qualifications in building services engineering or a related field, coupled with your extensive experience in the Manchester market, with an existing network of contacts amongst the building consultancies and property developers in the City and Greater Manchester area will give you a competitive edge.

But above all, it's your self-starting attitude, problem-solving abilities, and passion for the industry that will set you apart.

The Package:

This is a unique opportunity to join a well-established company and shape its future in a thriving market. Our client offers a competitive salary range of 80,000 to 85,000 per year, with the potential for a significant increase after six months based on your performance.

You'll also enjoy a comprehensive benefits package, including a generous mileage allowance, pension scheme, private health insurance, and a profit-sharing scheme that rewards your contributions.

If you're ready to take the lead and leave your mark on our client's Manchester venture, apply now. This is your chance to embark on a journey where your ambition, expertise, and entrepreneurial spirit will drive their success.
