  • Specialist Sub Contract
  • West London


£70,000 – £90,000 + Benefits

RC Frame & Groundwork Subcontractor – £50 million turnover

Projects / positions available in West London, North West London and East London.


About the Opportunity:

I am looking for Project Managers capable of overseeing RC Frame & Groundwork packages on new residential projects in any one of the locations listed above. I can only consider Project Managers from an engineering background that have worked predominantly for concrete frame & groundwork subcontractors in the UK.

As the Project Manager on any of these projects, you will be expected to manage the complete concrete frame construction with all the associated groundworks and foundations. You’ll be supported with an on-site foreman and engineering team, but it will be your responsibility to keep the project to programme while maintaining safety on site and controlling the budget. This is a client facing role with paperwork duties, so technically minded managers are required that have a proven background seeing these packages through from planning stages through to completion.


About the Employer:

Based just outside London this medium sized subcontractor is still growing year on year and with an annual turnover of circa £50m for 2020, they are looking to surpass this next year based on work secured and negotiated already (they have 10 projects starting in the next 3 months). They have a diverse way of working with clients in the commercial, residential, educational and leisure sectors and plan to keep it this way to protect the business. Usual packages range from £1m up to £15m each and include a variety of basement works, groundworks and multi storey concrete frames.

This business has a close-knit senior management and the successful individual can expect to join a business that values every individual. As the business grows there is definitely room for progression, so those looking to develop towards contracts management in the coming years, can be sure there is no glass ceiling here.

This position will report directly to either a contracts manager or the operations director of the business (depending on the size of the package you oversee). And it is worth pointing out, these positions are available immediately as these new projects have recently been secured with start dates on sites agreed for the coming weeks.


About the Requirements / Experience Needed:

I am looking for individuals who are degree qualified in civil engineering and have already progressed through the ranks to project 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 having gained this technical management experience while working in the subcontract concrete frame and groundwork sector.

In addition to the above I am looking for someone who is keen to be involved with the bigger picture. Due to the size of this company you’ll have a direct working relationship with all the business unit heads and you’ll all be working together towards the future of the business (i.e. strengthening client relationships even further on every project you are involved with). I can see this company doubling in size over the next 10 years so future progression is available for people showing capability and drive.


Salary / Benefits Available:

Packages are always based on individual’s backgrounds and experience level but as a rough guide I am looking to consider anyone looking to earn anywhere from £70,000 to £90,000 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 to those who exceed basic expectations and benefits include travel / car allowances and pension.


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. 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 or a profile of your background 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 (including which company this is that is recruiting), 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:
