Job description

Our Engineering Team are at the heart and soul of every Vanti project. They construct highly complex and intricate technology solutions focusing primarily on integrating control systems such as AMX and Crestron with other audio and video hardware, as well as building services such as lighting and HVAC systems. They oversee the technical delivery of projects from end to end, ensuring that designs are translated correctly into fully working solutions and that systems are properly documented and handed over to our service team.

A full-time project manager is accountable for managing the onsite & offsite project team acting as the main point of contact to communicate the scope of works effectively. You will be liaising with the clients to maintain expectations and project requirements to provide the best experience possible.

We expect you’ll spend much of your time:

  • Liaising with clients to identify and define project requirements, scope and objectives
  • Creating project plan(s), purchasing schedules, including anticipated logistics
  • Overseeing off-site build / progress of projects through the Lab
  • Using project management tools to monitor working hours, budget, plans and money spent
  • Liaising / negotiating with clients and suppliers to ensure equipment is ordered and delivered in line with project schedules
  • Coordinating activities with other trades, including handling all onsite client and other PM requests
  • Escalation of budget / time overrun impact to Directors (Early warning notices)
  • Identification / escalation of new opportunities arising back to sales
  • Creating and maintaining comprehensive project documentation, plans and reports
  • Identification / escalation of new opportunities arising back to sales
  • Acting as the point of contact and communicating project status adequately to all team members

You should apply if:

  • You have fantastic communication skills – both with fellow team members and clients when things are going well and when things don’t go to plan and need adult conversations!
  • You’re highly detail focused, capable of logically approaching situations and adapting to situations onsite as they arise
  • You have knowledge of contractual procedures and responsibilities
  • You have experience in managing large project teams and running complex, high-value projects
  • Are able to identify the skills and resources required to successfully deliver the project
  • You want the opportunity to work with (and play with!) the very latest technology
  • You’re not afraid to try out new things, make mistakes and learn by doing. If thrown into the deep end, you swim every time (even if it is only doggy-paddle!)
  • You want to work with people who love what they do every day, and be part of a team who are continually sharing ideas with each other and learning
  • You want to have the chance to impact the company’s growth and evolution
  • If you think what we do sounds exciting!

Extra Info:

  • The interview process will consist of an initial introductory telephone screen getting to know you a little more and sharing more detail about the role. There will then be 1 face-to-face informal interview followed by a separate in-depth interview at a later date. Please advise us at the beginning on as much of your availability and preferences as possible.
  • All career development plans are tailored to every individual. We don’t believe in the career ‘ladder’ – we believe personal and professional development is complex and on-going, so we will continually look to support you in both your learning and which roles and responsibilities you’d like to take on.
