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
