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.

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.
