Advanced Modern Methods of Construction
c. £70k, bonus, car

Our client is a rapidly growing business that has a patented system for the offsite construction of highly energy efficient houses for the future.

Each unit is engineered to exacting standards not usually associated with housebuilding and the emphasis on quality is further evidenced by exceeding regulatory requirements on fire retardancy and sound insulation.

This is a key role in the executive team as the business ramps up its production to satisfy the output demanded by a growing order book.

The Role:

  • Locate and set up an expanded production facility (from 8k to 40k sq. ft.).
  • Lead, grow and develop a team who will achieve cost effective and on time delivery of factory assembled houses.
  • Manage all supply chain activity (purchasing, planning, and logistics).
  • Contribute to overall business strategy as a member of the close-knit executive team.

    The Candidate:

  • Graduate engineer with a minimum 10 years’ experience of operations management in an engineering or assembly process environment.
  • Experience from within the construction sector is NOT essential. The business demands someone who does not have a traditional mind-set of how to build a house!
  • Proven expertise in lean manufacturing and continuous improvement.
  • Team management experience will be taken as read.
  • Hands-on, energetic approach. Able to handle the basics in what is effectively a start-up, alongside having the vision to shape strategy.
