This is a role for an ambitious, driven and experienced leader, who has experience in construction services as either a main contractor or a sub-contractor and who is able to lead multiple projects across a diverse range of customers, an experienced Operational Lead, who has come through the Commercial route.


Our client is a well-established organisation within the construction sector, offering a range of services to an enviable list of clients.  The business has a strong set of values and enjoys a culture of inclusion, success, growth and collaboration, their teams are loyal and dedicated and they have very high levels of satisfaction – people like working for them and tend to stay.


This role will be responsible for running their Edinburgh Operation that currently has a turnover of c£18m offering construction services, leading a multi-disciplined team of 30. This role will lead the growth of the business in this location, and build a team that can support this growth. The Board believe there is a real opportunity to grow in Edinburgh and would like to attract an experienced leader who can deliver:


  • Development and execution of the strategy
  • Business growth
  • Excellent customer engagement
  • Team development and engagement
  • Continued health and safety


In addition, this role will be seen as a ‘future hire’ with potential succession to the Board something that would be achievable and expected.


You will be a collaborator with strong drive and commerciality who take a pro-active approach, engaging others in the end objective and creating a strong sense of purpose and direction.  Working with clients will be something that you excel at and identifying opportunities to grow and improve the business will come as second nature.
