About the company

My client is part of an ever-growing group turning over in the region of £2B +. However, this part of the group is turning over circa £100M. They are specialist highways, groundworks, and Civil Engineering contractors with a superb reputation across London. They deal with a mixture of public and private clients such as councils, developers, and large government-funded projects. Company culture is important and despite my client being established for over 50 years, they have a fresh and growing commercial team with forward-thinking ideas, where they look to get the best out of everyone. Projects they work on range in value from £200,000 – £10M and this involves frameworks and schemes.
