This vacancy is for mid-sized, regional Main Contractor with an annual turnover of £27m spread over two Southern Regional offices. For over 4 decades, this company has forged a strong reputation for innovatively designed, well produced buildings in a broad range of sectors to include residential, commercial, retail and local authority schemes through frameworks. Project values have topped £18m but are more regularly in the £2m -£5m bracket.

The company remains privately owned, and owner operated and possesses a strong sense of collaborative working and a very close knit team environment.

The company ethos is to be customer focused. It aims to forge extremely close working partnership with its clients and provide both a service and product in an extemporarily, no adversarial style and maximise each client account by squeezing out the competition.

Not exclusively, but many staff who have joined this company from PLC type organisations have flourished there due to the straight forward, simplistic yet effective operating systems and a shortened decision making process.
