£200 – £240 per day

About the Requirements:

If you are interested in applying for one of the Site Engineer or Setting Out Engineer positions I have available with this fantastic business (there are 10 available), there are a few requirements you will need to check first (I’m sorry, I don’t make the rules).

To be successful all applicants must have worked for rival concrete frame or groundwork subcontractors in the UK. You must be degree qualified in civil engineering or structural engineering and have a minimum of 2 years full setting out capability. And in addition, this business only wants to consider people who have held stable positions of at least a year with each employer (they want to hire people for long term roles, so they want to meet people who have displayed the ability to stay with companies in the past). If you match all of the above, one of these positions could be ideal for you!


About the Opportunities:

I have been asked to recruit 10 new Site Engineers for one contractor due to expanding work levels and recent promotions within (that’s right, career paths are offered to those who want them and this contractor is busy with new sites starting now). You will be guided and developed while working on excellent projects, surrounded by professionals who work as a team to deliver packages on some of the largest residential and mixed-use schemes in town. Do you want to join a contractor that cares about its team? Do you want the peace of mind that comes with continuous work? And do you want to be surrounded by likeminded people who work together?  Then this really is ideal for you.


About the Company:

Turnover is currently above £150 million per annum (sounds impressive doesn’t it). They have been trading for over 30 years! And they work with some of the best developers and main contractors in the UK. How does this help you? Well it means they aren’t a new kid on the block, so the risk factor drops. They won’t be running out of work any time soon, so your job is safe. You won’t have to work on sites that aren’t run in the correct manner, so standards will be at the right level. Plus, if you do have aspirations to climb the management ladder, this business can support you and help you get there. On a personal note, I rank this business as one of my top 4 out of 100 clients so that should tell you something in itself!


About the Benefits:

Day or hourly rates will be agreed with every individual on a case by case basis depending on how much experience (in the right areas) you have. But as a rough guideline I am targeting individuals looking to earn anywhere from £200 to £240 per day.

The main driving point for wanting one of these roles should be the long-term employment. This isn’t just a recruitment drive for one scheme. This business has specifically sat down and looked at resources that they want to develop and retain for the years to come and these roles have been released following that. So, sign up, see them and start your career with this fantastic business.


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 (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.

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.

Either way, my contact details are listed below:
