Are you a Contract Manager that's based in Ireland (Think Dublin)? Or are you a Contract Manager looking to move back home to Ireland or move there for the first time? If you've answered yes to either of these questions, then this could be just the thing you're looking for.

My Client believes that Excellence in Construction is a key cornerstone to the companies strategy and has recently had some issues finding a Contracts Manager capable of delivering the expected service-beyond-expectation so have asked for Carmichael - being recent winners of the UK Engineering and Construction recruiters award - to help find the right person, with a constant desire to anticipate and fulfil the ever evolving Client needs.

Turning over approx. £30-35million per year their project size ranges from small works up to £15million across a broad range of disciplines including, but not limited to: Private and Public clients; Utilities; Drainage; Heavy Civils; Residential; Education; Pharma and more.

There is a strong desire within the company to continue to use the latest construction techniques, equipment and materials to help ensure continuous improvement to all aspects of construction. This belief carries through to the care given to their employees with things such as education and skill upgrading being available to all.
