Commercial Manager - Fit Out Projects - Build a Business Unit
It can be a challenge to progress when you work for a fit-out subcontractor, especially if you work for a small regional fit out subcontractor.
They often don't have the turnover to warrant senior roles or structure to support your career progression; chances are that you report into the Owner / Director regardless of your position within the company.
It is this exact reason that this position for a Commercial Manager, offers a rare opportunity.
Conrad Consulting is currently partnering with a specialist subcontractor that undertake high end joinery & washroom fit out, ceilings, drywall & glazed partitions as well as flooring and architectural finishes.
They have historically worked within London and The South East, however due to some recent acquisitions in the West Midland area, they now claim territory in the northern fit out market.
As a consequence, we are searching for a Senior Quantity Surveyor / Commercial Manager to head up this newly formed business unit in Birmingham.
In order to be successful for the role of Commercial Manager, you will have at least 10 years of experience in Quantity Surveying.
You must have a stable employment history and proven loyalty (4 -6 years) to previous employers.
You will ideally have worked for fit out subcontractors in joinery or ceilings and partitions. Our client is also happy to consider you if you have worked with a smaller fit out main contractor with a passion for detailed quantity surveying.
In return, we are offering you the chance to build and develop this new business unit within the West Midlands and Birmingham area.
Initially you will be taking on a traditional Senior Quantity Surveyor role, managing several projects commercially at various stages.
Moving forward, you will then be instrumental in building the surveying team you want to work with. Eventually managing P&L for the division, looking at risk and opportunity, additional strategic acquisitions and with a view to becoming a Director yourself.
Not only that, as our partner is a well established fit out contractor, they already have systems and robust processes in place to ensure you are successful in this role.
They operate as both main and subcontractor and therefore offer a truly unique opportunity for the right person.
If this sounds like a once in a lifetime chance, which let's be honest, it is, please reply to this advert today or call us to find out more about the role.
