Our Client specialises in providing Fire Safety and Passive Fire Protection from project conception through construction to remedial works. This ranges from products that might be part of the building or installed to the building to enhance its fire protection system. They also offer qualified HS&E consultancy, expert witness services, training and guidance throughout. Due to vast expansion, they are looking to recruit a Regional Contracts Manager.
Reporting to the National Contracts Manager, you will be responsible for ensuring projects and contracts are completed safely, on time, to budget and to the required, scope, program and specification. You will control costs and keep construction projects on track from implementation right through to practical completion / project hand over. You will take responsibility for the overview of the day-to-day running and smooth operations of all sites and site labour and you will be the point of contact and oversee all communication between the Client and the company strictly adhering to the Health & Safety Policy and protocols at all times.
You will work from home initially but will be expected to report to the Clients Head Office in Nottingham once a fortnight and also conduct regular site visits. You will manage the London/Southern regions including Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire and Essex. Naturally, this may involve you staying away from home occasionally, the cost of which would be covered by the Client.
