Your new company |
A high end residential developer is undertaking a new project within construction materials supply. They are branching out into a building merchants business which will be based in Central London and will supply their construction business, as well as other construction clients. Along with usual construction supplies such as timber, they are also going to be the only immediate suppliers of a special technology in the area which has proved very popular, but delivery normally holds sites back.
Your new role
You will be responsible for the running of the depot, including business development both on client and supplier sides. You will also have a part in setting up the business, including choosing a location, and giving advice and input through the process. When the company is active you will be in control of ordering stock, selling to clients, and hiring staff for the depot, as well as the general day to day running of the site.
What you'll need to succeed
An understanding of how this type of business runs is crucial, as is being able to contribute clients and suppliers from day one. You will have an understanding of both how a building merchant is run, and also construction processes on site so you can offer advice and expertise to clients. You will need to have similar experience in the managing of this type of business, and be able to take the reins on this project.
What you'll get in return
This is a permanent role within a fast growing company. You will have the opportunity to be a leading figure within the setup of a new venture and the responsibility of running the entire project. Because of the nature of this expansion you will have creative license with how the business could be run, and will be able to inject prior expertise and experience into this.
