Contracts Manager

New opportunity for a Contracts Manager in central Suffolk.

Your new company

I am currently working with a leading local sub-contractor who are looking to recruit an experienced Contracts Manager to join their growing team.

This sub-contractor is a leading supplier and installer of PVCU and Aluminium windows, doors, conservatories, sliding wardrobes and room dividers. Based locally, this company provide their services throughout the country, having built a reputation for quality and service.

This organisation places a great deal of importance on its people, and is committed to training and supporting all staff in both product and safety matters, to ensure the highest quality service for their customers.

Your new role

Due to continued growth, my client is looking to recruit a contracts manager to join their team.

You will be responsible for managing projects right the way through from pre-contracts meetings, to completion of the projects, as well as managing all the stages in between, such as managing site staffing and costing. You will also be responsible for planning and preparing the schedule of works.

What you'll need to succeed

You will need to be an experienced contracts manager, with main contractor or sub-contractor experience. The ideal candidate will also have a background in windows and doors, or carpentry / joinery, though this experience is not essential.

You will need to be able to use your own initiative to run a variety of projects and make key decisions that are in the best interest to both the company and clients.

A degree in construction management would be preferable, but is not essential. A proven track record working as a contracts manager is just as valuable.

You will also need to be friendly, positive, professional and approachable, as you will be interacting with clients and colleagues. Professionalism and personal presentation are important.

What you'll get in return

In return, you will receive a competitive salary, which is open to negotiation dependant on previous experience. In addition you will receive a competitive package, and the opportunity to work within a leading national sub-contractor.
