Quoted as ‘defining a new species of tradesperson’ by the national press, our mission is to revolutionize the painting and decorating industry, making it a more sustainable, transparent, and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.

As a growing team, we are looking for an experienced Contracts Manager to improve processes from all angles and ensure the end-to-end experience is the best it can be with customer satisfaction at the heart.

As trusted decorators of some of London’s finest residential and commercial properties, including heritage and landmark sites such as Westminster Abbey, we are looking for a contracts manager with in-person on-site experience who thrives in a collaborative, fun, and fast-paced environment.

The ideal candidate will be accountable for effective communication and project management with our clients, ensuring the project runs on time and within budget, coordinating the various strands of communication throughout and using their experience and knowledge to contribute to the company’s growth.

Our company culture encourages room for growth and training. As no two projects are the same, we are looking for someone who thrives on diversity of experience. The role will be split between our London office (SW18) and regular site visits, with a company electric vehicle provided.

We are looking for someone who is organized, has a hands-on approach, and is an open and honest communicator. We are a tight-knit team and enjoy get-togethers and training days every few months. If you would like to get a feel for the sort of people we are, our Instagram gives insight into this.
