Is this role right for me?

We are looking for the right person to fit in with our Saint-Gobain culture, but we know this needs to be right for you too. So, if you think you match the following, then we would love to hear from you!

Although the ideal candidate would hold a construction related qualification or the Property Care Association Certificated Surveyor in Structural Waterproofing (CSSW), more important is your experience and knowledge of structural waterproofing and / or construction products within the construction industry and your ability to learn. We are looking for someone who is comfortable working in a construction site environment, providing technical product support and solutions to customers working with the Companies products.

What is the core purpose of the role?

You will be joining a Technical Services team responsible for driving and ensuring quality and customer satisfaction in the use and application of our waterproofing products. Based from home with available office space in Slough, you will be attending construction sites across South and Central England covering a multitude of projects across a wide range of industry sectors, both above and below ground. You will be supporting customers in the application of our products, inspecting installations, and generating detailed written customer reports. As a technical expert in our products and the person with the site based relationships you will be a key element of our customer relationship and service offering, contributing to future success while supporting and acting as a conduit for our internal technical, commercial, and R&D functions.

In addition, you will get the opportunity to support R&D teams with new product development. This in some cases will include lab trials and the opportunity to follow new product development from the initial trial and development stages right through to on-site customer installation and application.

To be truly successful in the position, you will have in depth experience and understanding of structural waterproofing products and their installation, knowledge of concrete and cement materials would also be great to have. Excellent written and verbal communication skills and an ability to manage customer interaction and support on customer construction sites is a must. In return, we offer a career with a global leader, a competitive package, excellent future career opportunities, a great supportive team to work with, and a company vehicle.

And what about flexibility?

The world of work is changing, and at Saint-Gobain we are open to new ways of working in order to attract talented people to our business. We understand that everyone has different needs and commitments. Therefore, we are very open to discuss any flexible requirement or need that you may have for this role (this could be flexible hours, a job share, part time, to name a few).
