About the Employer:

Based in Essex but with work all around the South East, this large specialist subcontractor is a well-known name in the groundwork & RC frame sector (client name can be given once contact is established).

As a complete business they have the ability to take on everything from groundwork / foundations packages, substructure RC works or superstructure multi-storey concrete frames. Most of their clients are top residential contractors and developers but they do also carry out works on commercial and educational schemes too.

Current turnover is around £125 million per annum and this business has been trading for over 30 years.


About the Opportunity:

We have been asked to recruit a Contracts Manager for this company. The role will include the usual duties associated with managing a selection of live projects (usually between 5-7 schemes at different stages of completion), while reporting to the company directors (primarily the operations director).

Day to day duties will include overseeing individual site teams, which will be headed up with project managers and site managers, making sure they are reporting any potential risks or issues, are staying on time / programme and are maintaining costs.

This role will also be client facing as you will be expected to liaise with clients on each project to represent the company, making sure clients specifications are being met and they are happy with the delivery.


About the Requirements:

To be considered for this position, candidates need to have worked in a Contracts Management position, while working for a rival reinforced concrete frame and groundwork subcontractor.

Ideal backgrounds will be from an engineering route, having completed a degree in civil engineering or similar before progressing up the management tree, gaining experience in technical aspects such as, planning / programming and similar, but candidates from a trades background will still be considered if a strong amount of experience can be shown at this level with a rival subcontractor.

Due to the location of our client and their current workload, it is also important that candidates are based in or around London and are prepared to work in the Kent area.


About the Benefits:

For the right person, our client is offering a strong package, including a starting salary of £80,000 to £100,000 per annum (based on previous experience), plus a company car or car allowance, health cover, pension and a structured annual bonus.

This will be discussed at the point of interview.
