Contracts Manager

Concrete Frame & Groundwork Subcontractor

£100,000 – £115,000 + Company Vehicle + Benefits

East London


About the Company:

Based in East London our client has been trading for over 25 years as a reinforced concrete frame and groundwork subcontractor. Working with a mixture of large residential main contractors / developers including Countryside, Telford Homes, Taylor Wimpey and Weston Homes, our client has become a preferred supplier for a number of businesses. They complete packages with values ranging from £1 million up to £15 million and have a strong reputation for quality and working in partnership with their clients to meet their desired specifications. This company is currently turning over in excess of £70 million per annum, but with plans in place for continued growth over the next 5-10 years, this is expected to increase year on year.

This company has an excellent reputation for retaining and developing their staff. This role has only come about due to an existing team member being promoted above this level. The directors have a close working relationship with everyone in the business and there really is a team mentality at this business with everyone working together towards common goals. Everyone I have ever had interviewed with this business have all come out wanting to join the team.


About the Role:

We have been asked to recruit a Contracts Manager for this company. The role will include the usual duties associated with managing a selection of live projects (usually between 3-5 schemes at different stages of completion), while reporting to the company directors (primarily the operations director and MD).

Day to day duties will include overseeing individual site teams, which will be headed up with project managers and site managers, making sure they are reporting any potential risks or issues, are staying on time / programme and are maintaining costs. This role will also be client facing as you will be expected to liaise with clients on each project to represent the company, making sure clients specifications are being met and they are happy from the preconstruction phase all the way through to delivery.


About the Requirements:

To be considered for this position, candidates need to have worked in a Contracts Management or Senior Project Management position, while working for a rival reinforced concrete frame and groundwork subcontractor.

Our client is open to candidates from an engineering or trades background as long as strong leadership qualities are present, combined with a strong understanding of the work involved and a professional focus while representing the business with clients and other parties.

Due to the location of our client and their current workload, it is also important that candidates are based in or around East London and are able to work in this area, covering sites all over East London and the close surrounding areas.


About the Salary / Package:

For the right person, our client is offering a strong package, including a starting salary of £100,000 to £115,000 per annum (based on a discussion with the MD), plus a company car, full fuel and travel costs and structured annual bonuses. This will be discussed at the point of interview and our client is open to self-employed (i.e. limited company) or PAYE members of staff.
