Site Engineer / Senior Engineer – RC Frames & Groundworks in London


Engineers Needed – RC Frame & Groundwork Contractors


Turnover is currently above £150 million per annum. They have been trading for over 30 years. And they work on some of the highest-profile projects in town! How does this help you? Well, it means they aren’t a new kid on the block, so the risk factor drops. They won’t be running out of work any time soon, so your job is safe. You won’t have to work on sites that aren’t run in the correct manner, so standards will be at the right level. Plus, if you do have aspirations to climb the management ladder, this business can support you and help you get there. On a personal note, I rank this business as one of the top 3 RC frame contractors in the UK, and most people I speak to, say the same.


I have been asked to recruit 3 Site Engineers / Senior Engineers for one contractor due to expanding work levels and recent promotions within (that’s right, career paths are offered to those who want them and this contractor is busy with new sites starting now).

You will be guided and developed while working on excellent projects, surrounded by professionals who work as a team to deliver packages on some of the largest schemes in town.

Do you want to join a contractor that cares about its team? Do you want the peace of mind that comes with continuous work? And do you want to be surrounded by like-minded people who work together? And do you fit the criteria set out in the 4 points above?  Then please apply.


Day or hourly rates will be agreed upon with every individual on a case-by-case basis depending on how much experience (in the right areas) you have. But as a rough guideline, I am targeting individuals looking to earn anywhere from £250 to £300 per day (time and a half on Saturdays).

The main driving point for wanting one of these roles should be long-term employment. This isn’t just a recruitment drive for one scheme. This business has specifically sat down and looked at resources that they want to develop and retain for the years to come and these roles have been released following that.


If you are interested in applying for any of these Site Engineer or Senior Engineer positions, there are a few requirements you will need to check first (I’m sorry, I don’t make the rules).

To be successful all applicants must:

  1. have worked for rival reinforced concrete frame subcontractors in the UK.
  2. be qualified in civil engineering or structural engineering and have a minimum of 4 years on-site, setting out experience while with RC frame subcontractors.
  3. be prepared to carry out setting out duties. While some of the options may involve senior engineer duties, all will also involve setting out.
  4. have stable careers that reflect your commitment to stick with individual employers. While this last point isn’t always easy to measure, in short, my client does not want to consider people who have moved jobs every 6 months. I believe they have made this point as they only want to consider people with who they can have confidence in sticking around. These are long-term opportunities and not just for the initial yearlong projects, but for future projects also. So, I need people who stick with individual companies and would make this move for a long-term opportunity.

If you match all of the above, one of these positions could be ideal for you!

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.
