Role Outline

My client is looking for an experienced Project Manager to join a team of around 10 made up of other PM's Quantity surveyors and a Planner.

The projects undertaken by this department are all to do with the protection and control systems for the grid. The typical clients are large household names such as National Grid or Network Rail however 50% of the work actually comes from within the company.

This role is for a candidate that is used to looking after the project as a whole rather than just certain aspects. You will be responsible for all Client facing tasks / scheduling work / resources for the project / managing the panel build / arranging factory acceptance / budgets control / variations NEC / risk management ( RAMS ) as well as all of the reporting and escalations.

The projects range from GBP400k - 5M however some larger projects will arise. With the value being relatively low you will typically be looking after around 6 - 8 projects at any one time so the ability to multitask and be highly organised is a MUST.

As a candidate it would be beneficial to have experience in power generation / distribution or even protection and control sector. All projects will be Uk based and you will be overseeing them from the office so around 95% of your time will be office based with just 5% spent on site with the larger projects.

Overall this role requires a senior PM with a proven ability to successfully deliver multiple projects on time and within budget. It demands a very high level of organisation as well as a solid background in a similar role.

There is a very good team ethic in the office and the right candidate will need to fit in with that.

Responsibilities will include :

  • Able to provide accurate forecasts and execute projects inline with budget.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Able to work independently and deliver results
  • Fluent with MS Excel and MS Projects
  • Drive and the ability to engage with people
  • Ability to report and present
  • A flexible attitude to work


  • Proven experience as a Project Manager
  • Experience power generation / distribution or even protection and control sector.
  • A history of running multiple Projects at any one time.


  • GBP45,000 - GBP55,000
  • 10% Bonus
  • Company car / Allowance
  • 33 days holiday
  • Matched company pension scheme up to 10%
  • 40 hours per week
  • Life cover
