Birmingham based

An experienced mechanically focussed Contracts Manager is required for an established and well-respected M&E Services business that operates within the residential new build construction sector. Although still retaining the feel of a family run company this is a progressive business with a passion for getting things right and building partnerships based on reputation, quality and delivery.

Working in collaboration with major developers nationwide this business manages projects from concept to final installation and ongoing maintenance needs. Due to continued success and future contract commitments the business is now looking to strengthen its Contract Management capability.

As Contracts Manager, you will: -

  • Take responsibility for a team of Project Managers running individual projects and ensure these are correctly staffed to meet delivery and the overall requirement of the project.
  • As a minimum, hold an SMSTS certificate and have a real focus on Health & Safety and be confident managing multi skilled teams and onsite subcontractors.
  • Have demonstrable experience of contracts management and financial control gained in the residential sector with project values between £5 - £20m. Be comfortable negotiating with suppliers and subcontractors.
  • A proven track record managing high value complex projects within the medium to large residential property construction sector.
  • Ensure that all working methods adhere to company policies and that regulatory and legislative requirements are being achieved.
  • Have significant Mechanical Engineering experience together with strong project management and problem-solving skills.
  • Have excellent influencing and communication skills, able to create a strong team ethos, improve morale and motivate people at all levels.  

This is an exciting opportunity to join a progressive business that has a real passion for people engagement and delivering customer service excellence. The role will require the need to travel within the UK to construction sites (mainly Midlands and London), this will not normally require overnight stays. Based on success the opportunity for career advancement is a distinct possibility and will be actively encouraged.
