Site Engineer / Senior Site Engineer – RC Frames & Groundworks 

£250 to £270 per day

Projects: Camden, Aldgate, Wembley + More


About the Requirements:

If you are interested in applying for any of these Site Engineer or Senior Engineer positions, 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:

  1. have worked for rival reinforced concrete frame subcontractors in the UK.
  2. be qualified in civil engineering or structural engineering and have a minimum of 4 years on-site, setting out experience while with RC frame subcontractors.
  3. be prepared to carry out setting out duties. While some of the options may involve senior engineer duties, all will also involve setting out.
  4. have stable careers that reflect your commitment to stick with individual employers. While this last point isn’t always easy to measure, in short, my client does not want to consider people who have moved jobs every 6 months. I believe they have made this point as they only want to consider people with who they can have confidence in sticking around. These are long-term opportunities and not just for the initial yearlong projects, but for future projects also. So, I need people who stick with individual companies and would make this move for a long-term opportunity.

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 3 Site Engineers / Senior 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 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 like-minded people who work together? And do you fit the criteria set out in the 4 points above?  Then please apply.


About the Company:

Turnover is currently above £150 million per annum. They have been trading for over 30 years. And they work on some of the highest-profile projects in town! 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 the top 3 RC frame contractors in the UK, and most people I speak to, say the same.


About the Benefits:

Day or hourly rates will be agreed upon 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 £230 to £250 per day (time and a half on Saturdays).

The main driving point for wanting one of these roles should be 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.


How to Apply:

Please send me a copy of your CV and outline your availability and expected day rate.
