RC Frame & Groundwork Subcontractor

£90,000 – £120,000 + Benefits

Head office near M25 in Kent, 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 £45 million per annum and with a large proportion of work around North London, East London, South East London and Kent, 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 to be considered. I would like to add that this business is still growing year on year, and their reputation is quickly becoming that of a business to watch over the coming years.


About the Employer:

Like many other businesses in this sector, this organisation was formed from two leading directors from previous businesses that have joined forces to create something new. The business has a specialist house building groundworks division but the bulk of their work is and always will be focused around the residential RC frame and groundwork sector. With strong ties to clients such as Bellway, Redrow and Countryside, this business is growing year on year and is looking to recruit now to help develop the team in line with this. It is this growth that will bring opportunity, as those who have aspirations to develop their own careers and possibly manage others, will be given the opportunity as the company climbs.

Also, having met the MD myself I can add that his clear vision for the business is to offer a great service at a fair price while always focusing on maintaining and strengthening the relationships they have with some of the best developers in town. He really does stand out with regards to his ability to see the big picture and how working with clients not against them, brings the best results. I walked away from a meeting with him recently excited about their future and impressed by the way they operate.


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. 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 background and have gained this technical management experience while working in the subcontract concrete frame and groundwork sector.


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 £90,000 to £120,000 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.


How to Apply:

I am more than happy to discuss this opportunity with people over the phone or face to face in a fully confidential manner (you can get to know me while I get to know you). And I know 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 role in detail anyway, but having gained an understanding of your formal past, this may help when we come to talk and discuss the option.

Either way, my contact details are listed below:
