Interview date: Early April 2018
Job level: Senior Executive
Reporting to: Managing Director
We have a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious, progressive and forward thinking Production Director to lead our Production team in our North West region (based in Chorley). You will support the MD in the delivery of our strategic regional plan and enhance and develop the Production team to achieve high standards of quality and customer service, delivering new homes in line with business plan targets. You will develop a culture of continuous improvement, ensuring the highest standards of quality are consistently maintained and that all site colleagues operate within rigorous Health and Safety guidelines.
Demonstrable project management experience and an ability to motivate, lead and nurture a team are essential. You will have a proven track record of building, implementing and embedding processes/procedures to ensure efficiency and maximum standards of quality and consistency. Experience in house building is not essential. We have experienced sustainable growth over the last five years and we are focused on the next 5-10 year delivery of our business plan.

Story Homes was also named Housebuilder of the Year at the Insider North West Property Awards 2017.
The company directly employs more than 500 staff, and plans to recruit an additional 50 by the end of 2018. It also operates successful apprentice and graduate schemes, aimed at bringing young talent into the industry. This year (2017/18) Story Homes hopes to build more than 1000 homes.

This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in the continued growth and development of Story Homes; a fast moving business with excellent prospects. In return for your passion and drive, you will receive a highly competitive salary, be part of an exceptional annual bonus scheme, market leading pension, fully expensed company car or car allowance, and have access to private health care for you and your family.
