Construction manager

Your job as a construction manager is to coordinate construction projects with all stakeholders. You coordinate and supervise the deadlines and services and monitor the construction site processes. You coordinate subcontractors to ensure that the services of the various trades are optimally integrated. You are also responsible for the construction site personnel and the accounting for the entire construction project. You are the contact person on the construction site for clients, architects, authorities, and other people involved in the construction process.   

Employee in the building agency / public service

As an employee in the public sector, you will take on a wide range of tasks at the building authority related to construction projects in a municipality. Some prominent topics are building construction, water supply, and wastewater disposal. You are in charge of public buildings and facilities in your community. The work involves spatial and urban development planning. For example, you identify building zones, draw up development plans, or plans for building zones, taking into account building regulations. You have interesting opportunities for advancement in the public sector, for example, to become a manager at the building authority, city construction councillor, or city planning officer.
