Senior Site Engineer – RC Frames

£280 per day – £320 per day

About the Opportunity:

This is a long-term opportunity to work directly for the contractor (not via the agency) on a large £30 million RC frame package in Camden, North West London.

As the Senior Site Engineer, usually duties will apply such as;

  • You will need to have good experience in quality assurance checks on site & following company procedures.
  • You will also need the experience in temporary works inspections & TWC role for implementing temporary works checks & permit system on site in a detailed manner.

I can only consider candidates who have worked for rival RC frame subcontractors in the UK in a Senior Engineer position. It is also very important that candidates can show stability in their employment, so I can’t consider people who move jobs every 3-6 months.


About the Company:

Current turnover is well over £100 million per annum. As one of the best of the best within the specialist concrete frame sector, this organisations projects speak for themselves. They have completed numerous prestigious schemes throughout London and the home counties with several large projects also completed around the country. Their focus on quality, safety and offering a professional service has seen them partner with some of the largest main contractors and developers for long term periods of time, completing multiple projects with individual businesses. In addition to this they are now finding clients choosing to partner with them as principal contractor as they inspire the trust to complete works without supervision from main contractors. In line with what you would expect from a company of this stature, their staff retention rate is excellent with numerous people choosing to not only spend several years with this business, but also choosing to stay for longer.

They complete great projects. They have fantastic standards. And they keep their people happy long term. What more could you look for in an employer?


About the Requirements:

Candidates must be qualified civil engineers that have a minimum of 5 years on-site experience while working for rival RC frame & groundwork subcontractors in the UK.

And as mentioned before, I need people who have stable career histories.


About the Rewards:

This business offers above-average packages to ensure their staff are happy with their income and beyond this, to ensure they see this as a long term move when joining the company. Stability of employment and maintaining a low staff turnover is important in line with everything this business stands for.

For this position, we have been given a rough bracket of £280 to £320 per day but this is negotiable. Overtime and Saturdays will be available at time and a half. Career development will also be available for focused and hardworking individuals. You can progress into project engineering and further down the line project management, as long as you show the right levels of dedication and capability.


How to Apply:

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.

So, what does that mean for you? It means you won’t be trusting your career to a rookie salesperson who’s just out to place you wherever he/she can. 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 (the good parts and the less positive parts – none of them are perfect, but some are pretty close), 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 false truths. I tell them everything I know and then let them choose. My job is to get you the options you want, give you the information you need, and then let you decide what feels right for you.
