What the judges are looking for What it takes to be a Pride in the Job winner
Pride in the Job winners always have one thing in common - meticulous and consistent attention to detail. To win, they must score highly for the quality of workmanship on their site at every stage of the build. They must also demonstrate excellent leadership, technical expertise, robust health and safety processes and a certain 'X' factor!

What makes a winning Site Manager?
Ensuring the quality of workmanship at every stage of the construction, the judges are looking for key attributes in a winning site manager.
How is the Site Manager tackling the challenges posed by his specific site conditions? Is storage and protection of materials organised well? Is the site tidy? Are health and safety processes robust?
With competition for the awards so intense, particularly in the later stages, the judges must also look for special qualities in the winners. Consideration is given to:
- Consistency - management of consistently high standards across all trades
- Leadership - reflected by a high level of morale and motivation on site
- Technical expertise - knowledge and skill to resolve tricky issues on site
- Interpretation - the skill to do justice to the site designs
- The 'X factor' - that certain something that sets the site manager apart from his peers
