RC Frames & Groundworks
£50,000 – £65,000 + Package
About the Opportunity:
We have been asked to source a Health & Safety Manager to work as part of the senior safety team within a £100m+ turnover RC frame & groundwork specialist contractor.
This position will report to the department head and the managing director of the business and will involve oversight of all of the businesses live sites and the safety advisors. Based from our client’s head office with regular site visits across all of London, this will be a busy, face-paced position, with senior management responsibility and client facing expectation.
Your responsibility will be to uphold the excellent safety standards that this contractor currently maintains across all of their sites. Liaising with site teams, project management and office-based staff to make sure health & safety practise is monitored, controlled and applied. The culture of this business and team will already be on your side, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to bring your ideas to the fold and look to work with the team to ever improve such an important part of the process while working on some truly fantastic projects in and around London.
About the Company:
Established over 25 years ago and based out of their head office in Surrey, this £100+ million turnover business specialises in Concrete Frames, Groundworks and Basement Construction.
With satellite offices in the South West, they have a strong coverage of projects with package values ranging from £5 million up to £50 million each, primarily within the residential, commercial, leisure and education sectors. We have been preferred suppliers to this company for over 10 years and maintain a strong relationship with all the directors of the business.
What sets this business apart is their focus on safety and rewarding their staff;
The MD takes an active role in the safety department making sure it is at the forefront of everything they do, not only to please clients but most importantly to make sure every person goes home safely at the end of every day. He is proud to stand by their safety record and the constant measures they take to maintain and improve this department.
In addition to safety, the focus on rewarding their staff is demonstrated in the constant career development that is offered and the targeted bonus structures that are in place to help encourage all the teams to go that little further. I truly believe this company operate in an excellent way.
About the Requirements:
To be considered for this opportunity all applicants must hold NEBOSH qualifications (NEBOSH construction) and if possible, also an applicable degree (although the degree isn’t a must).
You will also need to have worked for a rival RC frame and groundwork subcontractor in the UK so you have an understanding of the works involved, the environment they work in, the risks on the packages involved and the culture of these types of businesses.
Outside of this, the only other point to note is this business works throughout London and the city centre, so all applicants should live in or around the South East to make the daily travel sensible.
About the Benefits:
For this position I am targeting individuals earning anywhere from £50,000 to £65,000 per annum depending on individual level of experience. In addition to basic salary this business does offer a comprehensive benefits package including additions such as travel allowance, pension and bonuses. But the real attraction outside of just remuneration should be that if successful, you’ll have the benefit of working for one of the best companies in this sector and all the experience / exposure that comes with that!
How to Apply:
I am more than happy to discuss this opportunity with people over the phone or face to face in a fully confidential manner. This is an incestuous sector and I fully understand the importance of keeping things discrete.
Alternatively, it would be ideal to see a copy of your CV to understand your previous experience and employment.
In line with GDPR, nothing will be done with your CV / details until we have discussed the role in detail anyway, but having gained an understanding of your formal past, this may help when we come to talk and discuss the option.
Either way, my contact details are listed below:

About Me, Your Consultant:
My name is Andrew Jackson and I am one of the founding directors of Cityscape Recruitment Ltd. I have over 17 years of experience in civil engineering & construction recruitment, during which time, I have specialised in the niche sectors of concrete frames, groundworks, basement construction, and demolition.
So, what does that mean for you?. It means you won’t be trusting your career to a rookie salesperson who’s just out to place you wherever he/she can. I work with the vast majority of the groundwork & concrete frame businesses in the UK and I can help not only introduce you but can give you up-to-date information on each of them (the good parts and the less positive parts – none of them are perfect, but some are pretty close), helping you make an informed decision so you can take your career forward.
I’ve been doing this for a fair while now and I’ve maintained a positive reputation doing what I do because I don’t tell people false truths. I tell them everything I know and then let them choose. My job is to get you the options you want, give you the information you need, and then let you decide what feels right for you.
