As a young business they have quickly established themselves in the market as a well-respected contractor with future growth at the forefront. Based out of their offices just North of London giving them an ideal base to service all of their projects across the home counties.

Bringing together a wealth of expertise to provide a professional and personal service to all of their loyal client base has been the backbone of the quality schemes they complete. The projects mainly consist of groundworks, drainage, 278 works, RC frameworks among others with projects valuing in range from £500,000 to £5 Million in both the private and commercial sectors.

 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 3-5 schemes at different stages of completion), while reporting to the company directors (primarily the operations director and MD).

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 whilst also 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 client’s specifications are being met and they are happy from the preconstruction phase all the way through to delivery.

The locations of projects this role will oversee will mainly be based inside London, but depending on where the successful applicant is based (i.e. where you live), there may also be the possibility of some projects in the surrounding home counties, so the successful individual will need to manage their time working around this area across a maximum of 5 jobs at any one time.

About the Benefits and Rewards

The basic salary offered for this position is £80,000 – £100,000 per annum depending on the level of exposure in this sector, especially experience with superstructure engineering. To add to this, a strong bonus scheme and benefits package will also be included for the successful individual. These package details will be discussed at interview / offer stage.

About the Requirements

To be considered for this position, candidates need to have worked in a Contracts Management or Senior Project Management position, whilst working for a rival reinforced concrete frame and groundwork subcontractor. This is a must!

This exciting opportunity is to head-up the sub & superstructure side of the business so individuals need to be very experienced in this aspect as our client is only looking to consider applicants from a civil engineering background so that a strong technical understanding is there when interacting with direct staff and client contacts.
