Current Roles

Salary: Executive package


Our client is a well-established Joint Venture of international leading companies delivering a long-term major capital design and delivery infrastructure programme in Scotland.

The JV is made up of companies that are heavily committed to the infrastructure sector in Scotland. Equally important, the JV companies have long standing relationships that have successfully delivered £billion’s worth of programmes and projects together under various joint venture and alliancing arrangements.

As sector specialists, with integrated design and build capability, there is a strong cultural and functional fit based on mutual understanding and respect of each other’s strengths. This has been key to their long-standing success in relational based contracting frameworks.


The Senior Commercial Manager will manage and lead the successful delivery of programme from the commercial perspective. The non-infrastructure programme of works includes the design and build of water/wastewater projects across Scotland and an overall revenue of circa £600m.

The Head of Commercial will work closely with area and project teams; the overall Head of Commercial, Head of Delivery, and the Chief Operating Officer in managing and maintaining the end-of-life commercial position for the programme.

Along with maintaining stringent commercial practices in the execution of the programme of works, key responsibilities will include closing out head contract commercial legacy issues such as aged high-value Compensation Events; claims relating to the schedule of cost components; LD-related claims; along with a central role in the development of margin recovery plans.


  • Excellent commercial knowledge and leadership skills.
  • Excellent working knowledge of the NEC 3 and 4 contracts.
  • Ability to work closely with the client in an Alliancing approach. 


  • Relevant degree and preferably RICS accreditation.
  • Experience of leading a framework or business commercial team.
  • Experience of working with a utility, in the process industry or EPC complex infrastructure projects.
  • Business acumen.
  • Experience and understanding of corporate governance good practice and requirements.
  • Any JV experience will be beneficial.
  • Extensive line management experience.


Our client is a successful and well-respected JV working with a high-profile client. Our client benefits from significant resources and experience offered by being a JV made up of market leading international businesses.

This is a particularly exciting time for our client as it continues to build on its success and further develop its capabilities, services and market position.

This senior appointment will enjoy significant levels of autonomy as a senior manager within the JV. The appointee will be expected to play a major part in the operational success and development of the partnership with the client.

The successful candidate will enjoy a stimulating and rewarding high profile role with a genuine opportunity for significant career progression.
