Vacancies

Commercial Manager

An opportunity exists for an experienced Commercial Manager with a background in Structural Steelwork & Architectural Metalwork (new build and refurbishment). The candidate must be able to:

  • Manage the commercial and financial aspects of projects/contracts from tender to pre-contract meeting and through to completion on site, co-ordinating estimates, valuations, variations and costing as well maintaining communication with the Customer throughout the delivery of the project/contract.
  • Manage the Estimator(s) to ensure we deliver accurate tenders on time that contain sufficient information so that both our customers and our project teams know what we have included or excluded from our price.
  • Further the interests of Crofton and look for opportunities to add value as we deliver current projects/contracts for our customers and support our opportunity to win the next one.

The person we are looking for will be expected to be able to manage all aspects of the cost of a contract at a very detailed level and must have an understanding of construction contract law.

Must be a good communicator able to build a relationship with the main contractor customer, develop rapport with colleagues particularly the Construction Manager, but also be able to keep Director informed in an organized, concise and timely manner.

Must be able to commit to the time required to achieve successful outcomes, with sometimes early starts or late finishes required.

Please note; this is not the same as managing contracts in other industry sectors as there is a need to understand retentions, MCD and final account negotiations and we will not consider anyone who does not have the specific experience as above. Salary is negotiable, depending on experience and references. For the right candidate, who can prove themselves, there may be a significant opportunity in the future.

They should know when to seek extra information e.g. from the customer to see if a tower crane is available etc. and construct a logical and consistent price using spreadsheet models. They will be expected to check their own work, produce and present error free tenders to which commercial considerations can be applied.

Preferred background: Design Draughting as there is often a design element in the projects we bid for.

Must be able to commit to the time required to achieve successful outcomes, with sometimes early starts or late finishes required.
