Sweet Construct are growing, and to drive that growth we’re hiring an Office Manager, based from our Flax Bourton offices to support the day to day administration of the head office, temporary offices and company equipment including vehicle fleet.

Who are we? 

Sweet Construct are a busy family run Construction company based in Nailsea and Flax Bourton, with turnover c£40m and 60 employees.  Rapidly growing, and recently rebranded, we’re transforming the face of modern construction. 

The members of our team all have one thing in common, regardless of their area of expertise, and that’s a "can do" attitude, to lead and inspire by example and to put the best interests of the company at the forefront of all they do. 

The role 

This role wears many different hats in the business, and no two days are the same.  We’ll be looking to you to ensure that our office teams have the tools they need to do their jobs, and that our office remains a healthy and productive place to work.

You’ll use your organisational and prioritisation skills to make sure that our company insurances are up to date, equipment is working at optimum and meetings are running as efficiently as possible across the offices.  Your role will also involve IT administration, setting up new starters, acting as the gatekeeper and superuser for our internal SharePoint (training on SharePoint will be provided if needed) and managing IT upgrades and subscriptions to our current software package – liaising with providers as the primary contact.

You’ll also be responsible for ensuring our company and vehicle insurances and records are up to date, alongside maintaining the company asset registers and – planning team building events and team socials.  Plenty to keep you busy.

Who you’ll be? 

You’ll have a successful track record in an office management or in administration at a supervisory level.  You’ll consistently be looking to see how we can improve efficiencies in our processes and be keen to do all you can to make our office a well-oiled and smooth working environment.

You’ll be comfortable and confident working alongside internal and external stakeholders, and as such – be a strong communicator and relationship builder.

Dotting the ‘I’s and crossing the ‘T’s in this role will be essential.  You’ll have an eye for detail and be able to keep pace with the work in a busy growing business.  If you’ve got previous experience of implementing processes and systems, and subsequently managing these in line with best practise – this will be to your advantage, as will any experience in social media or marketing.

What’s in it for you? 

This is the opportunity to be an integral part of a growing, ambitious business in the construction sector, working with blue chip and private clients on a variety of projects.  

We offer a competitive salary, a friendly, customer-focused environment built on dedication, knowledge and expertise, and in addition an atmosphere that promotes healthy work / life balance with complimentary fruit, tea and coffee, regular team socials, your birthday as a bonus day off and free on-site parking (not always a given in busy Bristol). 

If this sounds like you, apply now, we’d love to hear from you.  

Sweet Construct is an equal opportunity employer. We embrace diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for our people to excel.
