MAKE SITE MANAGER (READING)

We have a number of exciting projects starting soon and we’re looking to welcome a new Site Manager to our team who will take overall responsibility for the delivery of the project onsite. 

At MAKE, we love what we do. We have built a special workplace and have created a niche in developing high quality, complex residential buildings.

Formed in 2013, we are a creative construction business based in Bristol. We work across the South West, generally within two hours from our base.

MAKE was started to create a happy place to work where everyone has an equal voice and a shared vision to deliver buildings we can be proud of. We would like someone who can relate to the above to join us in a site manager role and contribute to the positive business we have built. 

It is very important to us that we don’t morph into being a conventional contractor, we work hard to make sure our work environment and working practices push the boundaries of traditional contractors. 

We have a very secure business with work already secured beyond the next year. We understand the market we work within, we work to our strengths and continue to look for sustainable growth over the coming years.
