Rolling basis


  • This role starts in early September 2024, and is based in Manchester in the Local Government sector within our Consult engine.
  • Delivering for everyone, everywhere. The work of government never stands still: changing requirements necessitates adaptation and evolution. And so too, their estates. The public sector faces many challenges when delivering projects and programmes for the communities they serve. From building homes to modernising leisure facilities there are tight timescales. Pressed budgets. Constantly changing political priorities.
  • Our team provides a range of services to both public and private sector regeneration clients, from project managing large programmes of work for social housing providers, to scheme design and placemaking. And our development team are specialists in initiating and bringing forward new schemes, working in partnership with investors and stakeholders to create vibrant new communities.
  • In our Consult engine, you’ll be part of a global think tank where innovation and sustainability take the lead. We collaborate closely with clients to understand their individual challenges, lending new ideas and fresh thinking to make strategic decisions and shape project directions. We will follow our clients where they work, often sharing their locations. Whilst we visit projects and sites, Consult is more about delivery of creative solutions than hardhats. If on-site action speaks to you more, our Construct engine might be your scene – check out the hands-on roles we have there, where you’ll be turning plans into reality on the ground.
