Commercial Project Manager
An exciting new opportunity has arisen at the stunning Mercia Marina in Willington, Derby (it really is, give us a Google).
We’re looking for someone with first class commercial nous as well as a good head for technical/engineering issues. Are you a creative thinker as comfortable with capex management as you are with sourcing e-vehicle charging points? Or at least confident and resourceful enough to take on the challenge and determined enough to succeed?
You’ll get an exciting well-paid career in a role where your ideas are welcome and actions will make a difference. We have big plans for the future and you will be central to those plans. You’ll be working in one of the best environments in the Midlands (you can help make it one of the best in the country as that is our aim). You’ll join a small team where everyone counts, and everyone contributes.
We have plenty of challenges for you with topflight commercial offices occupied by demanding international businesses, 260 floating residences, luxury holiday homes, many retail shops, cafes, and restaurants. There is scope for more of everything, but better and brighter.
If you’re used to a slow-paced environment where every day is the same, then this probably isn’t going to be the right role for you. Decision making here is rapid and unbureaucratic.
What will you be doing?
Something different everyday as the challenges come thick and fast and the easy way out is not our way.
You’ll be on the front line for new buildings, new infrastructure, additional land, more residences, more lodges including eco-lodges, IT innovation, equipment upgrades, e-vehicle charging schemes, e-bike schemes, etc. And then there are your ideas…
Examples of current projects are: Promenade building development scheme; fibre optic internet installation for whole marina; automatic watering for Park area and Lakeside Lodges; additional storage sheds; financially viable e-vehicle charging for residents and visitors; lodge development; eco-lodges; realistic and viable energy saving possibilities.
You’ll liaise with architects, planning consultants and planners on development schemes as required.
Assess possible development projects for financial return, customer demand, likely take-up and feasibility.
Undertake detailed financial project appraisals of major schemes.
Constantly look for opportunities to develop the business which will provide benefit for its customers and the general public and as a consequence provide profitable growth.
Help determine the optimum technical/engineering solutions.
Develop an overview of existing products, operations and processes and put forward suggestions for improvement.
What experience and qualifications do you need?
Ideally an engineering or technical degree from a good university
Good commercial experience in a decision-making capacity
Able to undertake detailed financial appraisal of major projects
Be an admirer of innovative solutions
A track record of achievement
Be keen to take on big developments
Have an international or at least national perspective
That’s all for now
