8. Review & input on programming as required with the delivery team to ensure that critical milestones are clearly understood and adequately catered for

9. Always review potential for improvements and options for simplification of services solution

10. Ensure that services are well coordinated with construction drawing package, and at site level

18. Honesty throughout in regard to all areas of the project - if problems, raise them with the wider team

This is an exciting opportunity to join an incredible medium-sized company that really is able to offer a superb working environment - this is not a number-driven corporate business where you'll have very little influence but a highly-capable entrepreneurial business that is well-funded and big enough to cope but very keen to listen to your ideas and expertise.
