We believe that good health and safety, customer care, and build quality are essential in achieving high standards across all aspects of the business. Bellway’s Site Managers play a vital role in delivering these high standards.
Site Managers undertake a wide range of diverse and demanding duties and their wealth of technical knowledge makes them an essential asset to the business. They are encouraged to perform at the highest level and to provide a friendly and supportive environment in which to work.
Recruiting, developing and retaining high quality site managers is essential in order to deliver the quality homes, standards of customer care and health and safety the we expect. We operate a Trainee Assistant Site Manager Programme with the objective of ensuring our trainee assistant site managers have the pre-requisite skills to develop into experienced site agents. In addition, our Construction Training and Development Manager’s remit is to further enhance this programme and improve construction related training across the organisation.
