Technical Manager (Housing) - Bristol

Avon, England • Negotiable dependent on experience • Permanent • Housing Development

Are you a Technical Manager or experienced Senior Technical Coordinator with a housebuilding background seeking a move away from volume housebuilding or just looking for a change?

Do you enjoy working with an ambitious and friendly team on regeneration projects and complex housing schemes of up to 150 units?

If you’re ready for a change, please keep reading.

My client is a growing developer based in Bristol. They are seeking a Technical Manager to work alongside the Head of Technical on a range of housing schemes and new site opportunities in the Bristol and Somerset regions. 

As the Technical Manager, you will manage projects from concept through to completion. As well as working on high profile projects, you will work directly with the land department on new site opportunities and develop/strengthen the standard house type portfolio for the company. Your role will involve managing external consultants and provide design solutions. You will sit within the construction, commercial and sales teams.

This is an evolving role, and a great opportunity for someone to be involved in community engagement, whilst successfully dealing with planning and legal sectional agreements. 

About you:

You will need to have 5 - 10 years industry experience, working within the house building sector as a Project Architect, Technical Coordinator or Technical Manager. However, if your career has been spent within an architectural practice and you have dealt with residential schemes from concept to completion, you are strongly encouraged to apply. 

It’s expected that you will have a track record in dealing with section agreements and are confident to challenge ideas in a professional way. This opportunity will suit you if you’re looking for the responsibility that allows you to think differently with your approach and delivery. Some travel is expected but this role is largely office based. 

Essential:
  • 5 - 10 years’ experience
  • Housebuilding experience or well experienced within a housing for architectural practice
  • Held Technical Manager/Project Architect/Senior Architectural Technician/ Technical Coordinator positions or equivalent
  • Architectural or Engineering qualification or similar
  • Full UK driving license
Personal attributes:
  • Good negotiation skills
  • Enjoys working within a team on challenging projects
  • Confident with delivery but professional at all times and a can-do attitude. 
How to apply:

If you would like to apply for the role of Technical Manager in Bristol, please register your details with the information provided. Alternatively, if you would like to have a confidential and non-committal discussion please contact Fiona Corbett on 0117 934 9555. 

Fiona specialises in technical appointments and will be happy to have a conversation with you about options.
