Construction Jobs at Persimmon Group

The Construction Department is responsible for physically building our homes and it is their skill and expertise that delivers our customers’ dreams

When building begins the construction team maintains regular contact with all other departments in the company to ensure deadlines for build commencement, show houses and legal completions are met. Throughout the build phase it is vital that costs and overheads are tightly controlled. These are monitored on a daily basis, together with build progress to ensure developments do not over run in respect of costs or time.

Construction management

  • The overall responsibility for building our developments lies with the Construction Director, who will coordinate the site and office-based members of the Construction Department.
  • The Construction Manager or Contracts Manager ensures production levels are maintained. They oversee a number of developments, visiting them regularly and playing particular attention to cost control, site presentation, adherence to health & safety and very importantly, the quality of the build.

Site management

  • The key role on site is the Site Manager - coordinating the activities of our own site employees and the host of sub-contract labour who will be turning up on site to play their part in the process.
  • Their main responsibility is to ensure the build programme is on schedule and properties are ready for our customers to move into on time.
  • Site presentation is very important and the Site Manager also has first-line accountability for the health & safety of everyone on site.
  • Large developments may have an Assistant Site Manager, often responsible for such things as the finishing trades, calling-off orders from suppliers and arranging delivery, storage and security of materials to site.
  • The Site Manager will also carry out formal inspections during the construction process to ensure build quality is maintained.
  • We all take pride in delivering the dream for our customers, but none more so than our Site Managers.
