Site Supervisor (Office Furniture Fitouts)

Posted: 06/07/22 | Deadline: 31/08/22

The Company:

Our mission is to reduce the carbon emissions and cost of office furniture.

We do this by remanufacturing high quality furniture to as-new condition and creating furniture ranges from waste materials. Furniture is the biggest source of carbon emissions in a commercial building – we reduce this by 80% while saving money for clients and creating jobs for local long-term unemployed with disabilities. Our 300+ projects prove that every office can be beautiful, sustainable and cost less.

Your Role:

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wants variety of work, enjoys creating beautiful offices, has a passion for creating a better world, is a good team player, can work independently, enjoys problem solving, and, most of all, takes pride in their work. Rype Office’s projects range in size from one-day furniture installations to multi-month fitout projects. As the business grows there will be opportunity for the candidate to grow and expand their skill set, creating further career opportunities.

We are looking for an energetic, hands-on person with good attention to detail.

Key responsibilities:

Your principal duty will be supervising project delivery on site. You will be working with Rype’s own team of fitters as well as external fitting partners when needed, ensuring that projects are built to plan, safe, on time and on budget.

  • Liaising with designers, clients, subcontractors and the remanufacturing team

  • Hands-on assistance with furniture installation when required

  • Preparing site progress reports
  • Day-to-day problem solving and dealing with any issues that arise
  • On-site First Aid (training can be provided on this)

  • Full clean UK Driving License
