Job duties:

Working on the largest scheme in the client’s portfolio, as Project Manager you will oversee two Site Managers working across this light rail scheme.

  • Commercial responsibility working with a QS to ensure profit margins are maintained in coordination with the programme
  • Providing technical guidance for works

Ideal Candidate:

My client is looking for a Project Manager that has a proven track record of experience within the rail industry and exhibits strong leadership skills for you to hit the ground running within this role.

  • HND/HNC qualified
  • A confident leader
  • Experience on delivery of light rail metro projects is desirable whilst rail industry experience is essential
  • Preferably from a Tier 1 / Tier 2 background
