CONTRACTS MANAGER

RC Frame & Groundwork Subcontractor – £130 million turnover – one of the very best!

Head office in Hertfordshire with projects in and around London

 

About the Opportunity:

I have been asked to find a Contracts Manager for this business to add additional support to the management structure due to increased work levels. Currently this business is turning over around £130 million per annum and with a large proportion of work around the West London, North West London, East London and the surrounding area. They need to recruit an additional contracts manager to help support the workload. It is crucial that suitable applicants have experience of working for rival concrete frame and groundwork subcontractors / principle contractors to be considered. I would like to add that this business is still growing year on year, and their reputation is that of a leading player in this market (i.e. top 10 concrete frame subcontractor in the UK).

 

About the Employer:

This business is one of my very top clients. Having worked with them for the past 10+ years I have seen them develop in both size and capability. They now currently turnover above £130 million per annum, building concrete frame and groundwork packages ranging in value up to £30 million each for a variety of residential contractors and developers throughout London and the surrounding Home Counties. They have a very modern edge to the business while maintaining traditional roots.

On a personal note, I believe this company is one of the best not only for the projects they help complete but also because of the environment they create for the people who work there. They go that extra mile to not only to retain their staff but to truly keep them happy to be with the business. Small things have been added to the office like a gym that people have access to all day with extra half an hour break given three times a week for anyone who wants to use it. They have a treatments room where massages and cosmetic treatments are available to everyone on Fridays free of charge, all you have to do is book in. And with plans in place for a roof top garden and BBQ area, I’d want to work here myself if I had the relevant experience in this role!  They really are a great company to work for to gain great project experience, to develop capability in modern construction techniques and to be part of the values they believe in.

 

About the Requirements:

I am looking for an individual who is degree qualified in civil engineering and has already progressed through the ranks up through project management to an existing contracts management level or a senior project manager who is ready for the step. You may be recently stepped up to this level or may have been doing it for a number of years, but it is crucial you have come from this sector background and have gained this technical management experience while working in the subcontract concrete frame and groundwork market.

 

About the Salary / Benefits:

Packages are always based on individual’s backgrounds and experience but as a rough guide I have been told to target people earning anywhere from £110,000 to £130,000 per annum. This can be broken down in a number of ways and this business is open to people of a PAYE or self-employed basis. Bonuses are paid and are based on usual performance targets on a twice a year basis, but usually are 10% of your annual earnings as a minimum, plus you get all the usual fringe benefits.

 

How to Apply:

I am more than happy to discuss these opportunities with people over the phone or face to face in a fully confidential manner. This is an incestuous sector and I fully understand the importance of keeping things discrete.

Alternatively, it would be ideal to see a copy of your CV to understand your previous experience and employment. In line with GDPR, nothing will be done with your CV / details until we have discussed the roles in detail anyway, but having gained an understanding of your formal past, this may help when we come to talk and discuss the options.

Either way, my contact details are listed below:

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.
