ABOUT THE COMPANY

Like many other contractors in this sector, this organisation was formed by two leading directors that joined forces to create something new. The organisation has grown to encompass a multitude of divisions covering projects across the whole of the UK. From large infrastructure & energy projects in Scotland to the largest reinforced concrete frame & groundwork packages in London, they can offer the experience and capability to deliver to a variety of clients. They have in-house remediation, demolition, groundwork, RC frame, tower crane, and precast divisions that support their project needs.

Having met the owners and directors of this business myself, I would personally like to add that I am truly excited about this business’s future. They have already accomplished so much, but with growth plans already well underway, the future only looks positive for this organisation. Their brand is focused on exceptional service, with quality and safety at the forefront while focusing on maintaining and strengthening the relationships they have with some of the best main contractors, developers, and direct clients across the UK. I have walked away from multiple meetings with this business both excited and impressed and if you meet them too, I am almost willing to guarantee you will feel the same. Office locations include Thurrock, Essex (head office), Crawley, West Sussex (regional office), London Bridge (London office), and Bellshill, Glasgow (Northern office).

ABOUT THE ROLE

My client is looking for a motivated individual with experience in plant and tools hire.

As the Hire Desk Controller, you will have responsibility for:

  • Receiving orders from sites and organising plant & tools for these orders from existing stock at the plant yard or on other sites where it is not needed, or through external suppliers.
  • Inputting the relevant information onto the IT system to make sure all plant and tools going out to or coming back from sites is tracked and accounted for.
  • Developing and maintaining knowledge of the company’s equipment to help support the needs of your role.
  • Supporting the management team with the ultimate goal of increasing productivity while reducing waste.

REQUIREMENTS

To be successful I am looking for someone with at least 2-3 years work experience in the plant hire sector, whether that be while working for a supplier or a rival construction contractor in a similar role.

Due to the nature of this role, it is also crucial you are a good communicated, computer literate and able to organise efficiently. You’ll need to have the ability to prioritise work load and work to tight deadlines, with good administration and time management.

 

REWARDS AND BENEFITS

For this opportunity, I am targeting someone looking to earn between £25,000 to £35,000 per annum. This bracket is flexible and starting figures will be based on experience and previous work history but in addition to this our client is offering a benefits package including pension and an annual bonus scheme.

If you would prefer a self-employed payment method, we can consider people on a limited company or similar basis with pay rates negotiated to reach a similar annual amount.

But aside from the earning potential, this opportunity really does offer the right individual exciting career options with a fantastic organisation

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.
