  • The preparation of detailed cost plans
  • The appointment of sub-contractors & suppliers
  • Support in the buying process
  • Ownership of timely reporting and accountability for the cost management of all development costs.

The role is varied and deadline driven, so excellent prioritisation and organisation skills are essential. You should be self-motivated and pro-active with the ability to meet strict deadlines.

Ideally you will have worked with a house building company for a minimum of 5 years and will have experience of appraisals and material buying.
