Contracts Manager

Job Profile

We are a unique organization, with a strong heritage, built around getting the best from our people, expert knowledge and breadth of information but we're also on an incredible journey of transformation. Our primary role is to manage the effects of past coal mining, including subsidence damage claims which are not the responsibility of licensed coal mine operators.
Our client deals with mine water pollution, public safety and other mining legacy issues to resolve the impacts of current and past mining activities in Britain. We also manage and deliver unique mining-related data and information assets.
We are developing new and exciting strategies to help our customers bring commercial success to key projects that they are working and in doing so bring commercial success to the organization, which may not be something that is first perceived of an organization that appears to be a Public Sector body.
Our teams are experts in the advice they provide offering creative, innovative solutions to manage public safety and environmental issues associated with coal and metal mining.
The role in a nutshell
Tor client is looking for a world class Contracts Managers. To work in collaboration with our Technical Teams, Project Management, Public Safety Teams and to create a strong, resilient partnership with our customers/contractors as you'll be both the internal and external face of our Contracts Team.

Our people, processes, expert knowledge and customer/contractor relationships are something we are immensely proud of, something we all own and want to continue to innovate and develop strategically.

You'll have a proven success of delivering projects over values of £1.5m through your extensive experience under NEC 3 in either Performance Management or Service Delivery and your enthusiasm, drive and determination to see results for our customers, The Client and yourself. You will ask yourself "What Commercial Opportunities are there?" Put simply, that means you'll work across wide and diverse range of operational and contract methodologies to get under the skin of what the project needs to deliver and then you'll develop strategies and a road-map to make sure it all happens on time and to the highest standards and for the right price. Any decisions made, any creative solutions, any expert questions - you'll handle them all with skill, knowledge and gravitas.
Innovation and looking at how we can do things differently is key for this role. We want to excite our customers, deliver the best possible projects for the right value and really ensure that those customers come back to us. This is a truly pivotal role at this exciting point in our journey.
What we need from you
You'll be a highly competent, experienced Contracts Manager who has worked on large scale projects or contracts under the NEC3 framework and has extensive breadth and depth of knowledge of doing so also with the opportunity for you to be biased to either Performance Management or Service Delivery.
You'll have experience working on large scale projects under NEC 3 for example the Olympic Park, Local Authority refurbishments, Flood Defence works for the Environment Agency, Regulatory Water Utility work or others and these contracts will have exceeded £1.5m in value.
