About the Opportunities:

I have been asked to find Contracts Managers for 7 different well-respected Concrete Frame and Groundwork subcontractors based in and around London / South East.

If interested, I am happy to divulge company names when we first speak to establish if you want to progress or not. What I can say is these options vary from £40m turnover subcontractors, to £200m+ turnover subcontractors, so there is a variety of sized organisations to consider.

Each opportunity will involve the usual Contracts Management duties (i.e., supporting and managing project managers and site teams, while managing client expectations, overseeing budget and programme requirements for each of your sites and helping at preconstruction phases with methodology for future schemes – basically problem solving and keeping things on track) on reinforced concrete (RC) frame and associated groundwork packages for a mixture of residential and commercial clients.

Each opportunity will report to either the company’s construction director or managing director and you will be responsible for anywhere from 3 to 6 live packages at any one time (depending on your level of experience and the values of the packages). Package values for each of these contractors range from £3m up to £50m each and all are in and around London.

 

About the Requirements:

The requirements for these opportunities are fairly straightforward;

I can only consider individuals who have experience working as a Contracts Manager for either Groundwork or Concrete Frame subcontractors in the UK. Or, if you have a proven background up to Project Management level and are ready for the step up.

Based on the locations, these roles would suit individuals based in or around London, and while some office locations will suit you more than others, it is worth noting, two of these positions offer remote working and the rest will all involve a certain amount of autonomy as you will be responsible for managing your own diary to get around your own site locations.

And due to the technical nature of these opportunities, I am ideally looking for individuals from a degree qualified background in civil engineering or construction management. Those from a trades background can be considered if a strong amount of experience can be shown working for rival subcontractors as a Contracts Manager already.

 

About the Benefits & Rewards:

For the right professional, our clients are looking to offer a market-leading package including a strong starting salary or rate with added benefits.

Whether you are PAYE OR Self Employed, you can expect a starting salary ranging from £110,000 to £130,000 depending on your experience, plus a car allowance, full benefits, and a targeted results-related bonus.

If self-employed, day rates will equate to a similar figure (depending on your experience) and you will be covered for travel costs and you will also be given target-related bonuses.

 

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.

 

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.
