Initially, you will have the opportunity to run three new projects that have just been brought into the practice.
Most of the work will be within community buildings, conservation projects, small scale commercial and residential developments. Therefore a passion and an understanding of these sectors is crucial.
You will have the opportunity to not only manage younger staff, but also your own projects. This give you a great opportunity to show what you are capable of from day one. This will in turn offer the chance to further develop your client facing skills, as you move into a more senior role within the business.
