About the Company:

With a group capability including groundworks, RC frames, demolition, piling and multiple build related packages, this organisation is currently turning over more than £400 million per annum with over £150 million of that coming from the specialist concrete frame and groundwork division. With offices just outside London in Borehamwood, they are ideally placed to service all of their projects in and around London while also having regional offices up the country covering their areas of work in the Midlands and North West.

This business truly is exceptional with regards to capability and in house expertise. They are still privately owned and the MD is an entrepreneur that is always looking for ways to improve what they do and expand their operation to be able to offer a better solution to their client’s needs. I have worked with this business for over 10 years and maintain a close working relationship with the team and can offer the chance to be interviewed by the MD so you too can gain a full insight into what this business can offer.


About the Role:

We have been asked to find specialist concrete frame and groundwork Project Managers capable of delivering packages ranging in value from £1 million up to £30 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 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 Salary / Rewards:

For the right person our client is looking to offer a market leading packages including a strong salary or rate with added benefits. If PAYE paid you can expect a basic salary ranging from £70,000 to £100,000 depending on your experience, plus a car allowance, full benefits and a targeted project related bonus. If self-employed, day rates range from £300 to £450 per day and you will be covered for travel costs and you will also be given project related bonuses.

This company really does pay their people well to make sure they are happy and look to stay long term and in addition to that, clear criteria are provided on how to hit the bonuses so that people are incentivised to perform well and in return receive very good bonuses.


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.
