  • Location: Derby, Derbyshire
  • Sector: Residential
  • Position: Carpenter/Joiner

Job description

My client, a renowned Apartment Scheme developer, is seeking an experienced Working Foreman / Handyman to join their team in Derby. This role is initially for 4 months but could continue beyond this as they open more developments across the region, into Leicestershire.

Working under the Site Manager and Assistant Site Manager, this role is to oversee the completion of the new build apartments. Responsible for working the Finishing / Snagging programme and managing the trades / labour 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
  • First Aid (desirable)
  • Own tool kit




BUT, in terms of experience you do not need to have worked on new build residential housing schemes. You could 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 25th March
