Avonside Group
  • Location: Colchester

  • Type: Admin

  • Hours: Full-time

  • Closing: 20/12/2021

The Opportunity

At the Avonside Group, we have an exciting opportunity based in our Colchester office for a Commercial Manager to join us.

Avonside are the UK’s largest service provider to the housebuilding sector. With over 35 Branches across the UK providing roofing, plumbing, energy and renewable energy solutions to the New Build and social housing sectors we are ideally placed to provide a national service with the care, attention to detail and high service levels that our customers have come to expect.

We are looking to add a talented, commercial, customer service and new business-focused Commercial Manager to our team.

Role and Responsibilities

Working directly for the Regional Director for the South-East; supported by Finance and HR partners, you will be responsible for commercial control of the Colchester office. This includes:

  • Managing the sales ledge
  • Raising applications for payments
  • Controlling labour and material spend
  • Stock control
  • Ensuring developments are delivered to budget
  • Generating profitable new business
  • Developing relationships with key clients
  • Producing Sales forecasts

All whilst juggling the demands of our customers and ensuring that our high standards of customer service and the right first-time approach are maintained.

What You Bring

Our ideal candidate will have a background in the house building sector – but not necessarily roofing. You are likely to have an estimating or QS role in your past – but most important is your commercial capabilities and a demonstrable track record of driving profitable new business and controlling costs within the new build housing market.

What We Offer

  • Competitive salary
  • 23 days holiday + bank holidays
  • Cycle to Work Scheme
  • Life Assurance
