Are you a Contracts Manager looking to work for a mid-sized national firm?

ABOUT THE COMPANY

My client is a multi-disciplined, cash-rich, well-known sub-contractor who is currently turning over £90M per annum with projections of turning over £100M in the next year. They specialise primarily within the water (wastewater and clean water) and infrastructure/non-infrastructure areas of civil engineering, with offices in North London, Kent, and on the south coast (this role will be based in their North London office). The company has some of the best staff in the industry working for them, they are very well respected across the utility industry and they’re financially very secure and in a stable position. While the business is looking to expand, they are also keen to maintain its family feel atmosphere, where it’s a fun working environment and everyone, is treated as a name, not a number, with the respect from the directors across the company. This is a contractor I enjoy recruiting for. Over the last 4 and a half years I have placed 3 of their senior managers and all of them are still there and enjoying it.

They are a relationship-based contractor and pride themselves on the quality of the work that they produce. This has led them to have repeat business with Thames Water, holding certain frameworks for over 30 years. On top of this, they have long-standing relationships with Affinity Water, Southern Water, and South East Water and have recently started working with Anglian Water.

ABOUT THE ROLE

You will be reporting directly to the Director of Operations, an approachable, friendly, experienced, and well-respected individual across the industry. Initially, you will be managing a portfolio of works in the region of £5M per annum, these projects can, however, be extremely technical, niche, unique, challenging, and difficult to deliver, it will create a great sense of achievement. My client is targeting to continue its growth in AMP-8 and is already looking at a growth strategy, you will be part of this and helping the business grow, this will also help you grow as a profession.

As well as strategy and pre-construction you will be overseeing the delivery of projects, managing 3rd party design consultants, making sure projects are profitable, maintaining a great relationship with the client, and managing, training, and developing delivery teams. The projects will be predominantly wastewater infrastructure as well as some clean water infrastructure projects.

REQUIREMENTS

I am looking for someone with a strong utility and water infrastructure background, and someone with the technical understanding to work on complex, engineering projects. This means ideally, I am looking for someone who has a degree in Civil Engineering. Good stability on your CV is essential, I am looking for someone who holds good job stability working for UK-based water/civil engineering contractors.

REWARDS AND BENEFITS

This is a brilliant opportunity for someone with a proper Civil Engineering brain, someone who likes a variety of projects where no project is the same, and someone who likes technical projects. You will have the chance to work for a company where you’re treated as a name, not a number, and brilliant performance certainly doesn’t go unnoticed. You have the chance to work for a thriving, growing, and friendly team that gives you the chance to enjoy work every day but helps a business grow and potentially achieve some personal career goals. My client is regarding the successful candidate with a great salary ranging in value between £80,000 – £90,000 + car allowance, company bonus (which has been very good in the last couple of years) as well as other benefits.

About this Recruiter

Alex Jacobs
Consultant

A bit about me

I have worked in construction recruitment for three years. I started working in the blue-collar sector but have turned my attention to white-collar recruitment here at Cityscape. I specialise in civil engineering opportunities – working with both Tier 1 and 2 clients in the highways, utilities, rail and water sectors. Before working in recruitment, I spent 20 years in the Arts where I was lucky enough to travel the world. But there are always more places to see so, travel remains important to me. I am into sports and am an avid supporter of Tottenham Hotspur. I have a wife and two children and live in Aylesbury. Most of my spare time involves parenting and entertaining the kids.

About Cityscape Recruitment

Cityscape Recruitment is not like any other construction recruitment agency. Our business does not have a sales-driven environment, instead, we reward quality over quantity.

We use our specialist industry knowledge to help introduce and guide construction professionals into companies that best suit their desired career aspirations and personal goals. From Quantity Surveyors to Site Managers to Civil Engineers, we work to the same objective of helping to enhance their careers.

And our relationships don’t end on day one of a new role – we pride ourselves on our ability to build long-lasting relationships with both clients and construction professionals. And we are fortunate enough to work with many leading construction companies and professionals in London and throughout the rest of the UK.

What our clients say

We have worked with Alex Wallace and the Cityscape Recruitment team for a number of years now and find their service excellent.

They supply well matched and vetted candidates and very quickly understood all our requirements. They have always demonstrated good market knowledge and an ability to deliver to our requirements.

Commercial Director,
Main Contractor

I have used Cityscape Recruitment multiple times over the last 5 years. Very pleasant to deal with and all candidates put forward for interview are well suited to the position and well vetted by the team, so there is no time wasted with unsuitable applicants. I would highly recommend Cityscape. I intend to use them again in the future should any vacancies become available.

Operations Director,
Platt and Reilly Ltd

The Cityscape Recruitment team has always been great to deal with. Always ready to listen to our needs and requirements, a quality some recruiters do not appreciate or have, then advising where they can assist in our staff procurement. We look forward to working with Laura and Cityscape in the coming years.

When you first contact us, be that through direct contact, responding to an advert or applying through our website, we will connect you with a consultant who works in your specialist area. 

Initially, they will arrange a meeting to talk through your CV and career history. They will encourage you to go into detail about your background and experiences, capabilities and responsibilities, personal circumstances and any other factors they feel are relevant to help them build up a well-rounded profile of you. 

We take extraordinary care in matching professionals to an opportunity – one that will help enhance their careers and a clients’ team. We therefore also use this meeting to empower you in your career. Using our extensive knowledge of the construction industry, we would provide in-depth overviews of businesses, projects and available roles, and guidance on where your strengths will add the most value and career potential. 

After this meeting, the consultant will speak to a number of their clients about you and your CV. Who they speak to can be either jointly agreed upon or you can trust the judgement and expertise of the consultant to contact clients they feel are the best fit for your experience and goals.

If any clients are interested in meeting with you, the consultant will manage the interview process, coaching you before any interviews if required. (Further guidance can be found here.)

If you are successful in receiving an offer(s), our consultant will communicate this with you and help to negotiate the offer(s) and any other terms of employment. 

Finally, we will support you in resigning from your current role, navigating potential counter offers and starting your new role.
