The business

Building Careers UK are looking to recruit a Commercial Director to join an up-and-coming construction and property business on Merseyside.

HMS are a highly credible social housing contractor with high functioning offices in Merseyside, working with housing developers and providers, as well as a vast array of other local authorities and client businesses. They as a business and their staff have an excellent reputation in the market and this reputation has been one of the fundamental factors in their continuing growth and success.

This lasting reputation for excellence in social housing maintenance has combined with a knowledgeable and passionate leadership team to help deliver the growth in building, refurbishment and maintenance sectors to date. As they continue to grow, they are expanding into new business sectors, including new build projects, with a target of sustainably growing the business further.

The Commercial Director role

As the Commercial Director, you'll be at the forefront of the organisation, working closely with the MD and the Operations Director. You will lead the high-functioning commercial team for the business, including the Quantity Surveying, Estimating, Warehousing, Business Development and Procurement professionals.

Thriving on a challenge, you'll also lead the way on new business development, recognising and exploring opportunities to increase turnover and profit in the short, medium and long term. Business growth is at the heart of the HMS five year plan - and this is a real chance to play an integral role in this period of expansion.

The continued success of HMS is being driven by the diversity and versatility of its people, and their commitment to a performance related approach to work. Responsible for all commercial aspects of the business, you'll be a key influencer in promoting this culture.

The person

A minimum of HNC qualified, you will have experience in a commercial manager or commercial director role in construction, property or social housing environments. You will demonstrate the ability to manage people based on their performance, and will also be comfortable managing relationships with other senior members of the company and the wider associated organisations (including IT teams, HR teams, housing associations and suppliers). You will need to be comfortable flexing your style depending on your audience; working with site-based teams one day and then presenting to a board of directors the next.

HMS have a vision for excellence in delivery, and for growth. You will be passionate about sharing in this vision, and be committed to driving the performance of the commercial team, often thinking outside the box about how business targets can be achieved now and in the future.

Negotiable depending on the right candidate, the salary will be highly competitive in relation to the current market rate. On top of that, a company car, a pension scheme and a healthcare scheme will come as standard. HMS are eager to secure the right candidate for the role and the right person for their business.

This is a fantastic opportunity to play a key role in the continued growth of HMS - a reputable Merseyside contractor consistently progressing.
