  • Civil Engineering
  • London

About the Company

Our privately-owned client who is based in Central London is a leading name within the demolition and civil engineering industry with a group annual turnover in excess of £80M. Their services include asbestos removal, temporary works, demolition, remediation, earthworks and concrete works and their strong reputation for successfully finishing challenging projects has been built on delivery and trust.

With a low staff turnover, this specialist subcontractor, who also operates as principle contractor on several of their projects, rarely recruits and this opportunity has arisen purely due to company expansion. Having recently met with this business and several of the leadership team, I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a polished company that can offer them good, technical projects and fantastic career progression opportunities.

 

About the Opportunity

Based from our client’s head office in central London you will be tasked with leading a team in the purchasing department that comprises a variety of plant machinery, materials etc servicing multiple projects in and around London. The successful professional will have a level of autonomy whilst reporting to the directors of the business and will be responsible for overseeing the procurement and management of all the plant within the business (from small tools to large plant).

 

About the Benefits and Rewards

The salary will be dependent on level of exposure to this industry, similar roles and experience on related projects. This company offers excellent opportunities and offers a basic salary of around £40,000 – £60,000 depending upon experience. The package may also include various benefits relating to travel and healthcare.

 

About the Requirements

Construction professionals will ideally have gained experience working for either a Groundwork, Demolition or Civil Engineering sub-contractor in this or a similar role and preferably individuals will be able to show stability in previous roles. This opportunity requires extensive previous experience within a buying role whilst working with a rival contractor.

Suitable professionals will also be based in or around the South East with an existing knowledge of the current rates and operations in this area as well as making the commute to the office realistic and sustainable. In addition to the day-to-day processes, our client is looking for a highly motivated individual who can hit the ground running dealing with various tasks on a daily basis with the variety of people involved. This role is crucial to the daily operations of the business so the right person must be brought on board.
