The position of Construction Manager with Lidl is very versatile and fast paced. It would be important for anyone considering this as a career option to make sure they are easily adaptable, highly organised and have a very hands on approach to Project Management.

Being a good multi-tasker is important, as well as the ability to take control of situations and delegate work to relevant staff and departments with confidence.

Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.
