Helping to enhance careers

Health and Safety Advisor – RC Frames and Groundworks

  • £40,000 - £60,000
  • Specialist Sub Contract
  • Kent

About the Opportunity:

As a Health & Safety Advisor/ Manager this role will be partly office based in Kent (near M25 – 1 day a week) but also covering sites around the London area (4 days a week).

Each of the packages this business complete involve concrete frames and associated groundwork packages that value anything from £1m to above £15 million each.

It will be your responsibility to oversee works being carried out while making sure standards and procedures are being maintained, people are working in the correct manner and training is being incorporated across the board. Your role will report directly to the managing director.


About the Employer:

Like many other businesses in this sector, this organisation is formed from two leading directors from previous businesses that have joined forces to create something new. The business has a specialist housebuilding 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:

To qualify for this role, applicants need to have worked for a rival Groundwork or RC Frame subcontractor in the UK in a similar or in this exact role. Basic qualifications such as NEBOSH will be required and due to the working area, individuals will need to be based in or around London.

As our client is looking for long term / permanent employees, they also look for longevity of employment in applicant’s CV’s, so please be aware it will be a disadvantage if you can’t show stable periods of over a couple of years with each employer.


About the Rewards / Salary:

For this position we are targeting individuals looking to earn anywhere from £40,000 to £60,000 per annum.

Specific salary will be negotiated on a case by case basis with experience and suitability taken into account. Furthermore, there will be a generous package offered; travel allowance OR company vehicle in addition to company benefits.

This role is open to self employed or PAYE payment methods.


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. As I say, 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 options.

Either way, my contact details are listed below:
