About the Company:


Based in the Home Counties with work all around the area, this specialist groundwork subcontractor is going from strength to strength, securing work with top main contractors and developers whilst growing the business at a considered rate.


I have known many of the senior management team for over ten years and can guarantee they have all come from excellent individual backgrounds before deciding to work together and pool their collective knowledge.


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 5-10 schemes at different stages of completion), while reporting to the company directors (primarily the operations director).


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 with the 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 groundwork subcontractor.


Ideal backgrounds will be from an engineering route, having completed a degree in civil engineering or similar before progressing up the management tree, gaining experience in technical aspects such as, planning / programming and similar, but candidates from a trades background will still be considered if a strong amount of experience can be shown at this level with a rival subcontractor.


Due to the location of our client and their current workload, it is also important that candidates are based in or around the South East and are prepared to work in this area, covering sites in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex and Cambridgeshire.


About the Salary / Package:


For the right person, our client is offering a strong package, including a starting salary of £75,000 to £100,000 per annum (based on previous experience), plus a company car or car allowance, health cover, pension and a structured annual bonus.
