We have exciting and ambitious growth plans for the future. Our mission is to be the most successful house builder in the UK and our objective is to achieve the growth required to deliver 1,000 unit sales by 2024. With an award winning product and sector-leading profit margins, the Company is now committing to investing in the future and the long-term growth of the Business.

We pride ourselves on building beautiful, quality, purpose-built one and two bedroom apartments in desirable locations across the UK for those looking for an independent lifestyle in later life. Developments are designed to take away all the hassle and fears of home ownership and provide security, peace of mind and independence.

We’ve won a host of awards; most recently we have been recognised by The Sunday Times as the 3rd Best Company to work for, and in 2016 became the first ever retirement living specialist to have been named overall ‘Housebuilder of the Year’ by the WhatHouse? Awards.

About the role

We’re looking for an experienced Senior Site Manager for our newly established Northern Region, initially to manage our new development in Kendal. The project consists of 64 brand new retirement apartments, set over four floors, on the grounds of the former Magistrates Court. 

Using specified drawings and instructions, you’ll manage the entire construction cycle to ensure all deadlines are met and the development is built to Company and NHBC standards. 

Based on site, and reporting to the Construction Director/Regional Managing Director, you’ll successfully manage all aspects of the building site, from demolition to final completion, with responsibility for health and safety issues, trades and material co-ordination, site presentation and cost control.

You’ll play a key role in ensuring the continued success of Churchill Retirement Living’s desirable developments in the North West part of the region. Initially based on the Kendal site, there will be a requirement to travel to other future sites, as the business grows.

For the right candidate, further opportunities for career progression will be available to develop and advance within the Company, as the Region grows.

Hours of work are between 7.30am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.

You will have a wealth of previous Site Management experience gained building Residential Apartments, Retirement Living, Extra-Care Homes or student accommodation.  Sound knowledge of Health and Safety Legislation is a must.   

Career progression will be a motivator for you, and with future opportunities to progress, you will possess the drive and ambition to grow and develop with the region and the Company as a whole.

You’ll be assertive and calm under pressure to meet numerous construction deadlines, whilst liaising with a wide range of external suppliers, specialists and in-house teams to achieve critical objectives, without compromising quality standards in any way. 

To achieve maximum co-operation, the ability to influence is key.  You’ll be comfortable supervising all onsite staff and will display discretion and confidentiality at all times.
