  • Identify, evaluate, and select contractors and vendors, negotiating contracts and ensuring compliance with project requirements.

  • Establish and maintain strong relationships with subcontractors, suppliers, and regulatory authorities.

Budget and Cost Management:

  • Monitor project budgets, expenditures, and financial forecasts, implementing cost-control measures when necessary.

  • Collaborate with the finance team to ensure accurate financial reporting and forecasting for construction projects.

Quality Assurance and Compliance:

  • Implement and enforce quality assurance processes to meet industry standards and regulatory requirements.

  • Ensure compliance with environmental, health, and safety regulations throughout the construction process.

Stakeholder Communication:

  • Communicate regularly with internal stakeholders, providing updates on project progress, challenges, and resolutions.

  • Collaborate with project development teams, engineering teams, and external partners to address project-specific requirements.

Renewable Energy Expertise:

  • Leverage past experience in delivering solar, BESS, or wind projects to optimize construction strategies and address industry-specific challenges.

  • Stay abreast of industry trends, innovations, and best practices to continually improve construction processes.


  • Bachelor's degree in Construction Management, Civil Engineering, or a related field.

  • Proven track record of successfully delivering renewable energy projects in the UK, with a focus on solar, BESS, or wind.

  • Extensive experience in construction management, including budgeting, scheduling, and contract negotiation.

  • Strong leadership and team management skills, with the ability to lead large, cross-functional teams.

  • In-depth knowledge of UK regulatory requirements and environmental, health, and safety standards.

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

  • Willingness to travel as required for project oversight.

In conclusion, be part of an organisation to drive the renewable energy revolution and contribute to a sustainable future.
