Our mission is to create great places to live for our customers, led by our three core principles of design and innovation, quality and customer care. These principles define us and are what we believe make Crest Nicholson different. Strengthening the connection between people and the places they share is at the heart of what we do.
We’re currently looking for an Assistant Site Manager to join our South division, based at our upcoming Burghfield Common development on the outskirts of Reading.
What does it take to be a successful Assistant Site Manager at Crest?
To carve yourself a career as a quality Assistant Site Manager with Crest, you’ll be proactive and supportive to your manager and the subcontractors who supply you. It is paramount that you are a strong relationship builder to ensure quality workmanship and collaborative problem-solving when faced with challenges and preventing reoccurrences.
You will work closely with other departments in the region as part of the development and construction phases, this is not an isolated role but a key central point in the delivery of quality homes. Your subcontractors will need guidance and direction so that you can work together to reach your targets and deliver an outstanding final product.
The role requires a level of resilience and drive to deliver to the build programme both on budget and to deadlines. You will be naturally motivated to do so and will never compromise on finishing of the product.
Working for Crest means delivering bespoke house types where each plot may present new challenges, requiring innovative thinking and flexibility. We build more than ‘good’ homes, we build exceptional ones.
As a Health and Safety Ambassador, you will ensure your site set up and operations are consistently in line with both Crest and industry standards and practices, from the moment you step onto site, through to the final handover of keys to a property.
We believe communication and good leadership get the job done – we encourage you to develop your leadership skills in the role of Assistant Site Manager while you work your way up to the role of Site Manager.
You will have at least 2 years’ experience in a similar assistant level role , mixed with your tools and trades knowledge in any specialised area. You’ll also need experience in building traditional homes, with a consistent track record of completing projects.
Benefits include a generous annual salary, company car, bonus, pension, healthcare, retail discounts and many more.
