If you're at the start of your Project Planning role in construction or have forged a path on site but have been thinking of moving into Planning, then I'd like to speak to you about a Junior Planner and Materials Scheduler role for a Manchester based housebuilder who have a proven track record of developing the careers of young construction professionals.

You'd be joining a growing business, one who're doing it the right way and one who will be offering you the support to learn on the job with help via their existing Lead Planner, the Directors and existing members of staff.

Alot of their recent growth has been in specifically created positions in the office to make sure their site teams and the rest of the office-based positions can do their job to the best of the ability. You'd also be the first Assistant Planner into the company along with around 6-7 'juniors or trainees' who've joined in the last 12 months so although it might seem daunting, this business has a proven track record of bringing in apprentices and juniors and training them up to be successful.

Along with a very competitive salary and package, the best thing I can say about them is that from experience they will support you but they will also let you forge your own path with ideas and input to make the business (and your role within it) a better one. They are a close-knit team who work hard but don't have the ego's that come with it. It's a great place to join a brand-new team and join the journey as they grow into one of the Northwest’s best contractors for new build affordable housing.
