Senior Planner – RC Frame & Groundwork Subcontractor

Hertfordshire or Central London office.

£80,000 – £110,000 + Package (based on experience)


SENIOR PLANNER needed with Reinforced Concrete Frame & Groundwork subcontractor experience for an immediately available position.


About the Employer:

Having been established for over 30 years within the specialist field of concrete frames and groundworks, this business is, without doubt, one of the leading names within this field (literally top 5 name). Current turnover is over £120m per annum and this has progressed steadily year on year going back over the last decade. They currently complete packages ranging in value from £5m up to £60m each on a mixture of residential and commercial projects throughout London and surrounding areas.

This business prides itself on its high repeat business rate and its in-house capability to take complex projects from design through to completion. They are family owned and still maintain the family feel they have had over the last 15+ years I have known them, which is important, because not all do as they grow. I would highly recommend this business as a polished environment where individuals can grow and flourish while working on some of the best projects in London.


About the Requirements / Responsibilities:

  • You will be critical in supporting the Preconstruction & Delivery teams in producing, overseeing, and monitoring the contract and construction programmes.
  • You will have competence in Asta Power Project (or similar planning software) and a well-developed ability to communicate technical issues clearly.
  • You will have the ability to read, absorb and visualise information from drawings and text and convert this into a robust vision for construction.
  • You will be a communicator who can motivate ancillary staff who produce 3D/4D models and ‘cartoon’ sketches, so that our proposals are set before the client using visual aids as well as text. Constructive communication with Estimators is also important.
  • Experience in a busy and fast-moving ‘Concrete Frame and Groundwork Specialists’ tendering office and the necessary ability to cope under pressure.
  • Broad engineering knowledge – knowing when something looks right.
  • You will support the PM in briefings to proactively focus on design (temporary and permanent), procurement, labour, plant, and staff in order to secure programmed dates and milestones.
  • Numerate and articulate.

To fulfill this role, we would ideally hope for the candidate to have spent a proportion of his / her career on building sites as an engineer, project manager or similar, preferably in the narrow field of groundworks and concrete frame construction but this is not essential if strong planning experience can be shown in this field.


About the Rewards / Benefits:

If successful you will receive a strong basic salary estimated at £80,000 to £110,000 per annum (based on level of experience) with a package to match. This is negotiable and is available on a self-employed or PAYE basis.


About Me, Your Consultant:

My name is Andrew Jackson and I am one of the founding directors of Cityscape Recruitment Ltd. I have over 17 years of experience in civil engineering & construction recruitment, during which time, I have specialised in the niche sectors of concrete frames, groundworks, basement construction, and demolition.

So, what does that mean for you? It means you won’t be trusting your career to a rookie. I work with the vast majority of the groundwork & concrete frame businesses in the UK and I can help not only introduce you but can give you up-to-date information on each of them, helping you make an informed decision so you can take your career forward. I’ve been doing this for a fair while now and I’ve maintained a positive reputation doing what I do because I don’t tell people whatever it takes, I tell them the truth. My job is to get you the options you want, give you the information you need, and then to let you decide what feels right for you.


How to Apply:

I am more than happy to discuss these opportunities with you over the phone or face to face in a fully confidential manner (you can get to know me while I get to know you). And I know this is an incestuous sector and I fully understand the importance of keeping things discrete.

It would be ideal to see a copy of your CV to understand your previous experience and employment. In line with GDPR laws, 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 discuss options.
