The role carries responsibility for a range of tasks that cover market analysis, regular communication with Irish construction companies and the introduction of their services to prospective customers in both the public and private sectors in the UK. These services may cover the full range of construction related activity including civil engineering, design, contracting, surveying and supply chain.
