As a site manager you would have a crucial role in the successful completion of construction projects. The site manager would be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the construction site, ensuring that the project is delivered safely, on time, and within budget. The following are some of the specific responsibilities that a site manager would have:

  • Project Planning: The site manager would be responsible for planning the construction project from start to finish, including coordinating with architects, engineers, and subcontractors to develop a detailed project plan. They would need to ensure that the plan is comprehensive, accurate, and achievable.
  • Resource Management: The site manager would be responsible for managing resources, including materials, equipment, and personnel, to ensure that the construction project runs smoothly. They would need to ensure that the necessary resources are available when needed and that they are used efficiently.
  • Health and Safety: The site manager would be responsible for ensuring that the construction site is safe for workers, visitors, and members of the public. They would need to develop and enforce health and safety policies and procedures to prevent accidents and injuries.
  • Quality Control: The site manager would be responsible for ensuring that the construction project meets the required quality standards. They would need to monitor the work of subcontractors and other workers to ensure that they are following the specifications and requirements of the project.
  • Client Liaison: The site manager would be responsible for maintaining a positive relationship with the client, keeping them informed of progress and any issues that arise. They would need to address any concerns that the client may have and ensure that their expectations are met or exceeded.
  • Budget Management: The site manager would be responsible for managing the construction project budget, ensuring that costs are controlled and that the project remains within the budget. They would need to monitor expenses, identify cost-saving opportunities, and report any cost overruns to senior management.


The company offers excellent opportunities and offers a basic salary in the region of £55,000 to £65,000.

In addition to the basic salary there will be benefits including car allowance, pension, health and travel allowance.  As well as long term career prospects and progression, you will also work closely with the Commercial Manager and Commercial Director who can offer support should you need it.

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.


Clients we work for

Our clients range from small, privately owned specialist contractors right up to top-tier PLCs responsible for shaping our country’s landscape.

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.
