As we continue to grow and succeed, we are now looking for a Senior Project Director to drive our project activity, play a key role in our growth and ensure every project is delivered on time and to an exceptional standard.

We are firm believers that the right environment produces the right results. It’s an ethos that we live by, express to our clients and have made part of our business model. As such, our working environment includes perks such as weekly team training and in-house fitness coaching, our people can work anywhere in our building and we offer flexible hours to all our staff. We even offer hot lunches every day for those in the office.

We’re a team-focused operation and we know it’s our team and our culture that supports our success. We look to invest in you and provide the platform to enable you to succeed and realise your full potential. And we’re eager to support you in other ways as well as we also focus on mental wellbeing and emotional intelligence, two of the factors which support our incredible culture.
