Section Manager

Looking to take on more responsibility whilst working on large highways schemes? This leading worldwide contractor are looking to give the chance for a Sub Agent or Site Agent to take the reins on a �100m+ scheme, with prospects of working on HS2 thereafter!


Our client has over 90 years' experience within civil engineering and have developed a strong, global reputation for delivering large-scale projects within the rail, highways and energy sectors. They are dedicated to maintaining and building on their client relationships which has enabled them to win significant new works, allowing them to continue to deliver complex, multi-disciplinary, engineering-led projects.

With them making headway on a major highways scheme in the Birmingham area, they are looking for a Site Agent to manage the earthworks package for this 2-year project!


This is an integral role within the project as you will be solely responsible for the earthworks package and the team within the section, which is one of the largest. You will manage everything including all engineering activity, liaison with the client and designer, procurement and management of plant, material and labour, all association paperwork (both technical and non-technical) and everything in between - but you already know all of that from being an established Site Agent!

What makes this role unique as this is the perfect opportunity to get your foot in the door with not only one of the UK's largest civil engineering contractors, but also a company with an astronomical amount of work on HS2 afterwards. The world is your oyster here, so what's not to like?


Now I've got you hooked in with the project and company, I bet you're wondering whether you're the Site Agent I'm looking for? You will need to have experience of major earthworks packages - ideally within highways but this could be overlooked if you're a phenomenal Agent. This role would suit either a strong Sub Agent looking for the step up, or an established Site Agent looking to work on larger schemes as there's a heavy amount of responsibility, so you much be able to handle the pressure.

As much as skillset is important, culture fit is also key as ultimately, they have a reputation to maintain and growth targets to hit, so you need to be seeking a career with a company. So, if you're just looking for a bit of experience to then jump around in the industry, this isn't the role for you.


You're the Section Manager I'm looking for if you hold a minimum HNC in Civil Engineering and also experience of highways build projects. Ideally, you will hold additional tickets such as TWC, however this isn't compulsory.


For the Section Manager position, if you're the top-notch candidate, my client is offering circa �50k depending on level and experience.

You will also receive a company car or car allowance, 25 days holiday + bank holiday, excellent pension scheme, and lodging if required.


If you have made it this far and think "I'm the perfect Site Agent for this" then apply today or send me your CV direct to Zoe, or if you're unsure and have a few more questions give me a call on 01332 861 825/07833467421.
