Façade and Glazing Solutions is delighted to partner with Elevation Recruitment Group in the recruitment of Project Managers.
Originally founded in 1982 and acquired by Saint Gobain/Glassolutions in 1990, Façade and Glazing Solutions (FGS) is a specialist glazing contractor experienced in the design, installation, refurbishment and repair of building façades.
The organisation has recently undergone a period of change. Recognising the potential for creating a sustainable business with a long-term growth prospect, CoBe Capital* acquired the business and re-branded to FGS in August 2018.
We are now launching the next phase of our transformation and we are looking to increase our “firepower” for our long-term growth journey by adding high calibre individuals to a range of core functions.
With this we are recruiting for Project Managers in our Major projects team, that specialises in full vertical envelope solutions for projects between £1m-15m.
The successful candidate will lead the commercial and operational teams throughout project life cycles. You will be negotiating contracts, managing variations, resolving disputes, and ensuring all work is delivered commercially and to the FGS standards.
You will work with the internal team, customers and suppliers to manage project plans, deadlines and designs, and be the key point of contact for clients, external project managers and other senior stakeholders.
As a Project Manager you will develop and align cost-effective solutions, by negotiating with sub-contractors, and effectively resolving daily issues. You’ll also supervise site-managers and project co-ordinators and provide support and coverage to the Operations Director.
We create exciting technically complex façades and glazing solutions.
We have been involved with the most innovative and prestigious projects of national importance throughout the UK, such as the V&A museum in Dundee and the Hiscox building in York.
We have the resources and the expertise to deliver exceptional technical support for bespoke solutions to exceed clients’ expectations.
We aim to play a role in advancing the built environment and industry standards, through close collaboration with clients and construction partners.
We are safety-focused - our impeccable safety record delivers on high standards of care to both clients and their employees.
Employees have total support from senior managers.
The leadership team collaboratively develops realistic and attainable business plans.

• Excellent working knowledge of architectural façade products, including architectural glass, aluminium windows, doors, curtain walling and cladding
• Experienced and fluent in Health & Safety regulations
• A CSCS qualification along with any preferably SMSTS or equivalent
