Who are we?

We are a creative construction business based in Bristol working across the South West. We undertake several roles including main building contractor, architect and developer, and are looking to expand our team to better facilitate this.

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 project management capacity and contribute to the positive business we have built.

  • Monitoring and recording progress in accordance with Make’s reporting policies.
