  • The successful post holder will be targeting banking and finance institutions, data centres, commercial offices, hospitals and universities

  • Target for the Area will be £1.2m, with an average order value for small/medium size projects at £40/50k-100k. There are usually small number of large projects per year that can net £200-500k each, so 2 or 3 of these a year can go a long way to achieving target
