Job Description

Premium Fit out and Refurbishment Business seeks a Design Manager to join their business.

Your new company
Our client is the leader in their space with a fantastic track record of high-end refurbishment and fitout projects completed across Scotland. They now have a requirement for a Design Manager to join their team.
Your new role
As Design Manager for this business, you will sit in the pre-construction team but work across the project lifecycle. Your role will be to support their project management and operations team in the design management elements of a range of projects across the central belt. You will take the lead in ensuring the design process is proceeding in line with the project time-frame through effective communication with stakeholders such as architects and other consultancies. From holding design team meetings to supporting your Project Managers on-site with any design issues, you will be a fundamental part of the success of their projects.
What you’ll need to succeed
Our client is looking for a candidate with an architectural background who has design management experience or is seeking to move their career into design management. Your experience in design will have covered significant refurbishment projects such as hotels, universities and commercial businesses, and you are at a stage in your career where you wish to apply your technical knowledge differently. You love design but are now more interested in the process and project management of a design than the design itself. The ideal candidate will have exceptional communication skills and a willingness to learn off an expert design manager currently in place.
What you’ll get in return
Our client is a fantastic employer with a very strong and attractive brand and culture, which ensures staff turnover is one of the lowest in the industry. This role is a critical role for them, so they will pay an attractive salary and benefits to the successful candidate. They are mature in their approach and would be open to different models of working such as hybrid. Roles such as this do not come on the market often. Get in touch now for more information.
