Great news – we’re looking for a talented individual to join our team!

At Powell, we understand our people are our heartbeat and this is the reason why our clients stay with us and why they recommend.

Over the last few years, we’ve seen an increase in demand for interior solutions across South Wales and the South West. We’re now searching for a Project/Contracts Manager to join our busy Contracts team, responsible for leading large-scale projects and working closely with a portfolio of clients and our internal design and contracts teams.

You will be based at our headquarters in Cardiff and will be expected to work flexibly between the office and client sites. Regular travel throughout South Wales and the South West should be expected for successful planning and delivery of projects from start to finish.

What you’ll need

With a portfolio of great projects, Powell is looking for an organised, committed and efficient team player who can oversee projects and people, whilst working effectively to approved timescales and budgets.

You will hold a degree/higher education qualification or related practical work equivalent, with a good working knowledge of the construction industry and understanding of mechanical and electrical services (M&E).

You will have strong project management skills and will have successfully delivered commercial fitout and refurbishment projects. A background in the office interiors market will not be essential.

You will have good interpersonal and communication skills as you will be liaising directly with a number of clients on a day-to-day basis, understanding requirements, drawing conclusions and delivering outstanding projects results.

To reap the rewards and benefits of this exciting role you will have a meticulous, cost-focussed approach that will support in the transformation of working spaces.

  • Take the lead in client communications
  • Site management
  • Work closely with internal project and design teams
  • Work closely with suppliers and manufacturers
  • Liaise confidently with suppliers, clients and contractors
  • Visit clients and carry out site surveys, working closely with installers and fitters
  • Resolve project issues effectively
  • Be a self-starter – effectively organise and prioritise your own work schedule and travel arrangements
  • Be positive, professional, presentable and friendly at all times

What you’ll get

As well as offering you the opportunity to join a very successful, family run business, the right candidate will also be provided with:

  • An excellent salary package (negotiable based on experience)
  • 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays)
  • Company car
