Jordan, as Senior Contracts Manager at Clarke Facades tell us a little about your typical working week.
The main focus of my role is to manage a number of contracts for Clarke Facades in mainland UK, from preconstruction through to aftercare, responsible for project delivery and performance. A typical working week includes the management of live projects to handover stage. On our larger scale projects, I become involved with our commercial team before contract award. I complete onsite visits, travel to management meetings at our Head Office in Northern Ireland, build a good rapport with our clients. I have a keen interest in developing systems within the company.
I live in England which suits the needs of Clarke Facades as the majority of our work is in the London area. I enjoy my role as a Manager as I get to meet a variety of people, visit a selection of locations as well as visiting the team in Northern Ireland on a weekly basis.
How long have you worked for Clarke Facades and what’s your favorite project to date?
I’ve worked at Clarke Facades since 2011. In this time, I have worked on a wide range of projects across the UK, being involved in many large-scale projects and locations is part of the job I enjoy most! A big part of my job role is to ensure that the delivery and performance of projects is to the high standard that Clarke Facades are known for.
Aesthetically, my favourite project would be the Curtain Club in Shoreditch for its overall finish, the Queen Elizabeth II Hospital would be my favourite scheme to work on for the mixture of complementing materials and challenges and our live project New Barnett for the systems and how well it is currently progressing.
