Job description

My client, a Tier 1 contractor, is seeking an experienced Working Foreman / Site Supervisor to join their team in Coventry. This role is initially for 3 months but could continue beyond this as they open properties each week.

Working under the Site Manager, this role is to oversee a variety of social housing refurbishment projects across the city as required by the client. You will work on a variety of housing stock across the region, working to the Finishing / Snagging programme and managing the sub contractors accordingly to ensure a satisfactory and timely completion.

You will be expected to role your sleeves up and get your 'hands dirty' so if you prefer sitting back and making lists this is not the role for you. If on the other hand you like to cross things off that list, whilst still having a bit of supervision of others then this is for you. Along with this you will need to be driven to get the properties finished and over the line - that tile to replace, door to hang, paint to touch up - these are all jobs you should and would be willing to undertake to assist.

For this role you will need to be in possession of:

  • Valid CSCS card
  • Own tool kit
  • Own vehicle and business insurance for travel across Coventry (business mileage from office to site will be claimable)

BUT, in terms of experience you do not need to have worked on social housing properties. You can be a Carpenter / joiner who is ready to step up and has a bit of management experience under your belt. Perhaps you're a handyman looking to try something new??

Above all, you need to be able to start on Monday 7th January!
