Project Manager

£30m RC Frame & Groundwork Package

£90,000 to £110,000 per annum + benefits + bonus (PAYE or Self Employed)

 

The Employer:

Currently operating with a turnover around £130 million per annum, this privately owned specialist concrete frame & groundwork subcontractor builds packages ranging from £5 million up to £50 million each. Their client base is a mixture of residential developers but they have plans in place to break into the commercial main contract market very soon.

I am watching this business go from strength to strength, reinvesting constantly, creating a stronger and stronger brand in the market. Clients are coming back for repeat works and new clients are knocking on their door because of the way they work and the reputation they have developed. Because of this they are attracting some of the best talent in the market, and with plans to grow towards £200m turnover, options still exist for people to progress in their career into senior positions. They really are one to watch and one to speak with if you’re considering career options now.

Further details on this employer can be given upon request with company name being disclosed.

 

About the Opportunity:

I have been asked to find two Project Managers capable of delivering large reinforced concrete frame, basement and associated groundworks packages on projects in London (initially there are projects secured and being shortlisted in South East London, East London, and Central London).

Individuals will need to have a strong understanding of everything from piling, groundworks, basement construction and concrete frame construction, while working on a mixture of residential and commercial projects in the past directly for the sub-contractor overseeing these packages with values above £10m.

Usual duties will apply from overall management of the site team, technical management of the programme and works, through to management of the client and surrounding aspects (i.e. health & safety, temporary works, engineering solutions and site meetings).

 

About the Requirements:

Suitable candidates need to be degree qualified in civil engineering or construction management and must be able to show a strong history from a site engineer level through to management over the last 5-10+ years.

It is crucial that candidates can show a strong amount of concrete frame construction background having worked for rival concrete frame and groundwork subcontractors in the UK. Candidates from a main contract or development background only cannot be considered.

Regarding software, our client uses the usual Microsoft programmes, standard email functions and Asta Power Project for planning / programming works. Project Managers will be required to use all these tools.

I need Project Managers who have stable backgrounds, have delivered medium to large RC frames and are looking to work for the best of the best.

 

About the Rewards:

This business offers above average packages to ensure their staff are happy with their income and beyond this, to ensure they see this as a long term move when joining the company. Stability of employment and maintaining a low staff turnover is important in line with everything this business stands for.

For this position we have been given a rough bracket of £90,000 to £110,000 per annum as the salary which will also include benefits and a structured bonus scheme on top. And we can consider individuals looking to be employed on a self-employed basis, as well as PAYE.

 

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. 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.
