Project Manager – Concrete Frames & Groundworks

Birmingham

£65,000 to £85,000 (PAYE)

£300 to £400 per day (Limited Company)

 

All about the Opportunity:

Do you have experience of managing concrete frame & groundwork packages from start through to completion? Does Birmingham suit your living situation (i.e. home) or as a location to base yourself from (i.e. there are excellent commuting links to Ireland)? Are you keen to consider an option with a London based contractor that are rapidly expanding in the Midlands and can offer excellent projects to start on immediately with London level salaries / rates?

If you are, this is the perfect option to consider. Birmingham is set to thrive with construction over the coming years and this contractor has got in at the beginning, working with clients they have strong relationships with in the South East.  Projects are secured and we are actively looking for Project Managers capable of delivering packages ranging in value from £5m up to £20m each (RC frame & groundwork packages value).

If you match these criteria and want to be working around Birmingham while being very well rewarded, please apply.

 

Is this option right for you?

Usual Project Management duties will apply and if you have done this role before, I am sure you do not need me to list these for you, so in short, as the Project Manager you will be responsible for managing the packages from start to completion, managing the programme, site team and client to allow a successful handover on time and on budget (obviously with the support of engineers, foreman and quantity surveyors).

Suitable professionals will ideally be degree qualified in civil engineering and will be able to show a strong history from a site engineer level through to management over at least the part 5-10 years.

It is important that you can show a strong amount of concrete frame and groundwork construction having worked for rival subcontractors in the UK. Candidates from a main contract or different subcontract background cannot be considered due to the specialist nature of the work.

 

Let’s talk about the company / your future employer:

Operating from London with a local regional office, this specialist subcontractor works with a variety of residential main contractors and developers, completing both concrete frame and groundwork packages. They have been trading for over 20 years and currently are turning over circa £120 million per annum while covering projects in the South East, South West and Midlands.

With a very low staff turnover and rarely a need to recruit, this role is purely due to expansion and new work and we have been tasked as the sole recruiter to find the right person who is looking for a career opportunity.

On a personal note, having met with this business and the leadership team, I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a strong business, that have a very well-known name in this sector that delivers small to the largest packages with a real focus on safety and making sure their people stay motivated / rewarded. The structured bonus structure that is available for all Project Managers stands to testify this point, as PM’s are rewarded for staying on budget, to programme and while keeping health & safety at the forefront of what they do (these are the 3 criteria). I would recommend this business to anyone looking for a career developing move to a business where you truly matter and are rewarded for the effort you put in.

 

How to apply / contact me:

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.
