About the client

My client is a family owned Rail sub-contractor who are turning over £10-£15M. They are based on the outskirts of Hertfordshire with great transport links into central London. They have a very good reputation in the sector, sub-contracting for main contractors such as AMCO, Colas Rail and Volkerfitzpatrick as well has having strong relationships with Network Rail and London Underground. My client specialises in Platform extensions, platform upgrades, groundworks and concrete works within a rail environment. The founding owner of the company still has a huge involvement and you would be reporting to him directly.

I personally have a lot of time for this client, the team are hardworking, dedicated and very nice individuals, making it a great place for people to work and learn their trade within a Junior Construction Management role.
