Construction Project Manager

For many fans of Formula One, the sport exists between lights and chequered flag on a Sunday afternoon. It begins and ends with the exploits of the drivers on the track. But this is merely the tip of the spear. The reality of modern F1 is that of a complex and intertwined operation, every part of which needs to perform near its limit if success is to be achieved. From the pit crew searching for the ultimate repeatable pit stop, to the inspiration of the designers, the application of engineers and the herculean efforts of an army of fabricators and machinists. Much of our success is thanks to the diversity of thought and spectrum of skill sets held within the team, our ability to recognise unique contributions from individual team members is just a part of why we love what we do.

Job Description

We’re looking for a Construction Project Manager to join our Buildings and Estate Project Management team based at the Red Bull Technology Campus in Milton Keynes.

  • Apply for and push through necessary permissions for construction projects, including CDM and Building Control approval.

  • Develop project delivery programmes, managing risks to day-to-day activities.

  • Manage projects on site and ensure adherence to programme and budget.

  • Develop project H&S documentation, incl. reviewing contractor RAMS prior to works on site.

  • Ensure contractors work to CDM and other H&S regulations on site.

  • Ensure long term operation is considered in design.

Essential Competencies:

  • Experience of managing contractors.

  • Ability to create a complete set of building requirements from initial, basic supplier information to deliver a compliant and working solution.

  • Working knowledge of both Mechanical and Electrical building services systems.

  • Familiar with managing activities in line with the Construction Design and Management (CDM) regulations.

  • Dynamic thinking and determination to see projects through.

Now from us - what you can expect to receive in return:

Not only is this a fantastic role, but it is also a fantastic team to work with here at Red Bull Technology.

A good salary is just the start, there are many other benefits too such as our bonus scheme, private health care cover, life assurance scheme, workplace nursery, company contributed pension scheme, on site gym & fitness classes, free food, and a cycle to work scheme; but above all, the job satisfaction doesn’t get any better than the feeling of making a real contribution to the function of our Grand Prix cars.
