Multi Utility Project Delivery Manager – East Midlands

“One of the reasons I love working for Aptus is the company is always striving to be the number one multi utility company in the UK.  The role at times can be demanding with deadlines needing to be met, however, my role is very rewarding as you are involved in housing schemes from start to finish. Watching a scheme develop from estimation to design and then walking round a finished housing development knowing that as a business we have performed to a high standard, there is no better feeling for me”
