Industrial Placement 2019 - Commercial Management - London

12 month Industrial Placement based in London, beginning in June 2019.

The Service

Knowing that ‘one size doesn’t fit all’ for construction management, our contracting service can be procured under two-stage, fixed price, traditional or management forms of contract. We have experienced every form of contract and can confidently offer the same quality of service whatever the choice of procurement route: from early involvement through a two-stage route, to getting involved once the design, costs and programme have been fixed under a traditional single-stage contract, or to the early buildability and programming input of a management contracting approach.

We understand that each project is different; simply put, the procurement method needs to be innovative, efficient and flexible enough to deliver the best outcome for the client. Our response is a tailored model for each client that drives best long-term value and ensures continuous improvement.

The Role

The role of the commercial manager in a contracting capacity covers all financial aspects of a project, from bidding for work through to the close out of final accounts when the project is completed. This involves procurement of works to maximise the profit margin, and the subsequent management of costs through the design and construction phase in order to ensure that margins are realised.

As an Industrial Placement your responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

- Assisting with monthly client applications

- Raising Interim Payment Certificates (IPC) for packages

- Administering Interim Statement of Accounts (ISA)

- Updating cash flows

- Cost management of allocated construction packages

- Supporting the drafting of subcontracts and agreeing variations costs

- Assisting in procurement
