Project Manager / Senior Project Manager x 12

Concrete Frames, Groundworks & Basement Construction

£75,000 – £100,000 per annum + bonus scheme – PAYE or Self Employed


About the Role:

We have been asked to find specialist groundwork and concrete frame Project Managers capable of delivering packages ranging in value from £5 million up to £25 million each (anywhere in between).

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.

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 and client meetings).


About the Companies:

I have concrete frame and groundwork contractors based all over the South East that are looking for Project Managers / Senior Project Managers / Project Directors.

Projects are in Surrey, Central London, East London, West London, North West London and North London so I really can provide options for anyone with the right level of experience in this market.

My process is therefore fairly simple, if you are actively looking or are even if you are just considering your career options, I can discuss with you which contractors are recruiting at your level, we can come up with a shortlist to approach and then progress from there. My goal is to target only companies you are interested in with a view to get you 2-3 offers on the table. From there the hard decision falls to you of which one to accept, but as they say, there are worst problems to have if all of them are companies you like and all the offers are good. To be clear, these are all active roles with companies I have worked with for years that have asked me to source individuals for them. They are not speculative approached.

Whether your preference is to target smaller contractors currently turning over around £30m per annum but are expanding, or if you’d rather target some of the biggest who turn over around £200m, we have options at both ends of the spectrum and in between. Office locations include all of the surrounding areas to London with projects in and around the city, so depending on where you live, we can again tailor the options.


About the Requirements:

Suitable candidates will ideally be degree qualified in civil engineering or construction management and will 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 and groundwork construction background having worked for rival concrete frame and groundwork subcontractors in the UK. Candidates from a main contract background 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.


About the Rewards:

Businesses in this market over above average packages to ensure their staff are happy with their income and beyond this, to ensure they see their employment as a long-term move. Stability of employment and maintaining a low staff turnover is important in line with everything my best clients stand for. For this position we have been given a rough bracket of £75,000 to £100,000 per annum as the salary which will also include a car allowance, standard benefits and the structured bonus scheme from most. For individuals looking for a self-employed payment method, we can also offer rates in the region of £350 to £450 per day plus the bonus schemes and potentially travel expenses.


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. 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:
