Project Manager - Capital Projects & Events

Are you bored of Project Managing the same things day in day out?  Are you looking for your next opportunity that offers variety and new challenges daily?  If yes, read on!

We are currently recruiting for a Project Manager at Thorpe Park Resort, the theme park where no two days are the same! 

As Project Manager you will coordinate and deliver professional Project Management Services, serving the resort’s portfolio of a wide range of Capital and Opex based projects.

These are split into three main areas; covering the more traditional Facilities type Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing (MEP) services and Building Fabric works; supporting the specialist Engineering based activities during the winter strip; and full responsibility for delivering various Marketing led themed projects and events through the summer season.

  • HND or equivalent in construction related discipline
  • Experience of planned preventative maintenance systems of work
  • Ability to read and use civil engineering drawings
