Commercial & Construction Director

You are here

A unique opportunity has become available to join part of a growing business at a Senior Level overseeing two key departments initially of London-based, residential main contractor. 

The company are part of a £50m turnover fast-growing London-based residential developer. They specialise in producing low volume, high quality living spaces in prestigious, sought after areas of London such as Kensington, Knightsbridge, Chelsea, Notting Hill Etc.  Their typical projects would include low volume, new build apartments and refurbishments/conversions of London townhouse properties, including Grade II listed buildings, into high-end apartments. Project Values up to £6m with unit sale values in excess of £1m up to £3.5m each.

The construction arm, although is a Limited company, it has historically operated as a department of the developer. The business owners have decided to grow the department into a separate profit centre and will operate as an independent contractor. They have recently recruited a Managing Director with a proven track record to run, grow and develop the business as a successful, separate commercial entity. The contractor/construction arm as it stands is a £6m turnover business and has 11 staff members. 

They are in need of a Commercial & Construction Director in an initially joint 50/50 role to oversee both departments but only for the next 6-8 months by which time the position would be separated into two, taking on a Construction Director or Commercial Director depending on the experience of the person in the initial position.
