Sector: Construction | Job Type: Permanent | Salary: Negotiable

Project Manager Concrete Frames + Groundworks (Sub-contractors) Due to an increase in workload and several sites that are set to start in the coming weeks, at least one Project Management role has become available with two separate businesses. About the Company: Both our clients have been established for over 25 years and during this time they have grown into leading concrete frame and groundwork subcontractors in the UK. Current turnover for one of the businesses is around £60m and the other is closer to £120m. Both businesses have constant plans in place for growth in a variety of areas. They own their own plant and formwork equipment and have a very strong in house health, safety, quality and environmental team that are constantly striving to increase the standards of not only the work in which the company complete but also their processes along the way. The senior management team at both businesses maintain very strong relationships with everyone who work within the businesses and this can be demonstrated by their very low staff turnover levels and this adds to the reason why our clients are two of the most desirable companies to work for in this sector. About the Projects: Our clients specialise in the construction of reinforced concrete frames and the completion of groundwork packages. These works cover a variety of aspects including high-rise superstructures (insitu and precast alternatives), substructures, concrete cores (slip-form, jump-form, traditional), ground floor slabs, demolition, excavation, piling, basement construction and remediation. Package values range from £1 million all the way up to £30 million and are allocated depending on previous experience. Projects are also usually located within a geographical area spreading across London and the South East. Sectors of work include commercial, residential, industrial, and educational and public sector clients. Duties: These duties give an idea of what will be entailed in the roles but areas of experience don’t necessarily need to have been gained in all. • Overall management and responsibility for the daily operation and final completion of the site works in terms of health and safety, programme, budget, cost and recompense from the client • Recruitment of teams and motivation of engineers, package managers and construction operatives. • Management or completion of method statements, technical submittals, rfi’s, quality, environmental and H&S documentation. • Management of overall production on-site and coordinating the timely sequences of operations by providing design assistance to the design team and ensuring receipt of necessary details and information. Collaboration with clients and consultants to resolve problems in advance or as they arise. • Production of budgets, long and short term programmes, built-up for variations and valuations. • Assistance in the development of temporary works design schemes for formwork, shoring, propping and ensuring installation in accordance with agreed procedures. • Tendering, negotiation and procurement of specialist materials and sub-contractors such as concrete, reinforcement, craneage, support systems, steelwork, waterproofing. • Attendance and chairing at meetings for the purpose of progress, technical information, H&S and commercial motives. Requirements: To be considered candidates ideally will come from a degree qualified background and ideally in Civil Engineering (not 100% necessary), but more importantly candidates must be able to show a strong amount of experience working for rival groundwork and Reinforced Concrete frame subcontractors in the UK. Whether you have worked as a Senior Project Manager before or are looking to step up from a Project Engineer level, you will be considered if a strong amount of experience can be shown in this sector with recognised groundwork or RC frame subcontractors. Aside from this, due to the working area of our client we are trying to only target candidates that live within the London and Home Counties areas. Candidates that are prepared to stay away need to be aware that our client does not see this as the perfect scenario based on previous experience with commitment and longevity. References will also need to be supplied from at least your last two employers which must work within the groundwork and RC frame sector so backgrounds can be verified as standard
