Graduate Project Manager

£28,000 to £32,148

35hrs pw, Permanent

Tongwynlais, Cardiff with some home working

We are looking for a Graduate Project Manager to join our Development Team and to help us to take forward our ambitious growth plans and develop new homes.

About us

Newydd Housing Association is a charitable housing association, that offers nearly 3,000 affordable homes for rent and sale to people where need is at its greatest in Mid and South Wales, working in several local authority areas.

About the role

Reporting to our Head of Development, you will be responsible for identifying affordable development sites and opportunities and for supporting the progression of schemes through from feasibility to acquisition, and on to supporting the project post contract development. You will also need to maintain working relationships with consultants, Welsh Government, and local authorities, along with our internal departments in order to continually improve our housing products.

About you

As our plans grow, we will encourage you to grow. We will help you to build your skills, so you will be a valued member of our high performing Development Team. As well as a structured on the job and soft skills training programme you will be funded and supported to complete your relevant degree course if not already done so, and to become RICS or CIOB professionally qualified. You will have excellent career prospects and on successful completion of the programme there will be an opportunity for progression to the role of Project Manager with a salary range of £39,123 to £41,182.

You will have achieved (or be on target to achieve) a minimum 2:2 degree in a construction related subject. You will have first-rate communication, organisational and team-working skills and a full driving licence. You must be able to demonstrate genuine passion for the role together with a commitment to on-going learning and personal development. Whilst structured learning is key, you will also have the opportunity to get stuck in and show us what you’re made of from the start. The ability to be proactive and work on your initiative is therefore crucial.

The Graduate Project Manager position is a busy, varied, and challenging role and you must be able to demonstrate great analytical knowledge and be an effective communicator and team player with excellent IT skills. Knowledge of procurement of works, project management and contract administration is essential for the role, along with great time management skills.

We are committed to investing in your future as you contribute to the success of ours. So if you are looking to build your career in surveying with an ethical and friendly company, and you are as committed to delivering an exceptional service as we are, then why not apply?
