Assistant build manager
at Beams Renovation

Beams Renovation is hiring an assistant build manager for residential renovations to join its team in London.

Our story

Beams is on a mission to make home renovation simpler and greener. We’re doing this by building a revolutionary technology platform and marketplace for homeowners and contractors so they can plan, design and build all in one place.

From the moment the customer starts to plan their renovation and selects their design, to final completion, the Beams platform offers a seamless journey, allowing homeowners to take a back seat and oversee construction, while Beams-vetted contractors deliver projects tailored to their clients’ tastes.

This is a unique opportunity to completely overhaul the UK’s attitude to interior design and renovation. We’re well on our way having cultivated a community of top-quality contractors, developed a stream of projects sold, and built a sophisticated supplier ecosystem to support each home renovation.
