We are working with a leading national contractor whose Manchester Office has created a great reputation for delivering varied and interesting projects for clients based in the North West of England.
They have excellent relationships with their clients that means they enjoy a good proportion of repeat, negotiated business
Of the 30 people we have placed in roles with this company the vast majority are still with the business, most have progressed in to new roles and the vast majority of people we send for interview with this business want to work for them.
They have a very approachable and successful senior management team, secure the overwhelming majority of their projects through negotiation (they are good at what they do and tend to leave their clients pleased with their projects) and are also members of a number of key public sector, procurement frameworks. Although they are one of the Top 20 Construction Groups in the UK they have the feel of a smaller family business where employees are valued and supported.
They are in the middle of a period of sustained growth in the North West of England.
They are cash rich, typically make above industry average margins on their projects, have an excellent supply chain who they pay promptly and treat with respect (we know this from personal experience!), staff turnover is low and their Glassdoor rating is among the best in the industry.
