The Role

Construction managers are at the "sharp end" of project delivery working on site. A construction manager will be involved from the pre-construction/planning stage right through to project handover and sometimes beyond.

As a trainee construction manager your responsibilities will include, but not limited to:

• Assisting in the production of short term construction plans.

• Assisting with the procurement of trade/sub-contractors.

• Assisting in project start up and preconstruction stages.

• Assisting in the daily control, management and coordination of site activity. 

• Keeping a detailed diary of works planned and actually carried out by trade/sub-contractors. 

• Checking sub-contractor works, benchmarking and quality control

• Ensuring that all relevant paperwork is received, reviewed and communicated where necessary.

• Contributing to site progress meetings with trade/sub-contractors

• Ensuring health & safety is adhered to onsite, including site inspections and conducting site inductions.

• Assisting Construction Managers with various elements of the build

• Establishing key relationships with the trade contractors, setting up clear lines of communication to coordinate labour and help address issues that may arise


Trainee Construction Managers are sponsored through a 2 year HNC at a London-based university (one day a week on campus). Once this is achieved, apprentices are enrolled onto an NVQ Level 6 to allow them to start working towards their CIOB qualification.
