Construction Manager / Senior Foreman – Groundworks

Top 5 – RC Frame & Groundwork Subcontractor

£300 to £400 per day (depending on experience and capability level)


About the Opportunity:

I have been asked to recruit a Senior Groundwork Foreman / Construction Manager to work directly for a top groundwork and concrete frame subcontractor in London. This position is immediately available. Full package values include the frame elements valued from £20m up to £100m. It is worth noting, that while this contractor does also carry out concrete frame packages, for this opportunity they need someone with the groundwork knowledge/background. The frame elements will be handled by other foremen/construction managers. All of the sites you will work on with this contractor will be medium to high-rise schemes in and around London with associated foundations and basements packages.

The role will involve the usual management duties, for individual sites, including making sure trades and site teams are put to work and working in the correct manner, monitoring health & safety, and making sure standards are maintained while driving the projects forward to make sure programme targets are achieved. This role will be reporting to the project manager or contract manager involved with the scheme.


About the Requirements:

To be considered, candidates need to have worked for rival concrete frame and groundwork subcontractors in the UK. This is a must. Also, I need candidates from a groundworks background. This position is not to look after the frame, so people from a shuttering background can only be considered if a strong amount of groundwork and foundations experience can be shown. Otherwise, I need groundwork experts.

Basic tickets such as SMSTS and First Aid will need to have been gained and in an ideal world a Gold or Black CSCS card.

Due to the site locations, I also need individuals who are within a commutable distance to London.

In addition to this, we are looking for individuals who have stable backgrounds with individual employers as our clients have made it clear that they want people for the long term, not just for one-off projects who move around every 6 months.


To Apply:

I need a copy of your CV. An up-to-date copy of your CV showing employers, length of time with each employer, lists of duties, and some examples of projects/packages worked on as well as tickets and qualifications.

Simply apply to this advert with your CV or email it directly to me: Andrew @ cityscape ltd . com

I will be in touch to discuss the role once I have your details if your experience matches the criteria listed above. No CVs will be submitted without candidates being contacted first.


About Me, Your Consultant:

My name is Andrew Jackson and I am one of the founding directors of Cityscape Recruitment Ltd. I have over 15 years of experience in civil engineering & construction recruitment, during which time, I have specialised in the niche sectors of concrete frames, groundworks, basement construction, and demolition.

So, what does that mean for you? It means, I work with the vast majority of the groundwork & concrete frame businesses in the UK and I can help not only introduce you, but I can give you up-to-date information on each of them (the good parts and the less positive parts), helping you make an informed decision so you can take your career forward. I’ve been doing this for a fair while now and I’ve maintained a positive reputation doing what I do because I don’t tell people false truths, I tell them everything I know and then let them choose. My job is to get you the options, give you the information, and then let you decide what feels right for you.
