Are you a Logistics Manager in Construction looking for your next opportunity? Do you have both new build experience and have also a history of working with Rail projects? Are you seeking up to £70,000 plus pension, health care and a project bonus? Are you able to commute into London every day? If it's yes then please read on....

This client are a large commercial developer who work in Europe and have a solid history of working in zones 1-3 in London on projects from £50 million to £300 million. As a company they will buy the land and then build the project themselves and have a very strong growth plan for at least the next 5 years in Central London.

This particular project is valued at approximately £70 million and it will be a new build office, it has some shared access with Network Rail so the client has asked for the successful candidate to have a strong working history of working on rail projects although they are also keen for somebody with building experience.

The project is due to start in the next 3 months but they will take the relevant person on asap, they would like to settle in the successful Logistics Manager into the company and it's processes long before the project starts. Also they could help with the Logistics Supply Chain if they have experience of this.

Ideally the candidate will have previous experience of working on large scale projects over £40 million and have worked for a main contractor although somebody from a Logistics Sub-Contractor could also be considered.

The Logistics Manager will report into the Project Manager and duties will consist of:

Being responsible for all aspects of the logistics supply chain, stores management, development and optimisation of site logistics solutions to meet the needs of the project. The logistics manager will be required to manage the movement of people, goods and equipment at the construction site.

Key interfaces that the logistics manager must ensure early engagement with are: the project planner; the commercial managers procuring the works and the senior construction manager on the site. The construction logistics manager should ensure that the construction team is fully aware of logistics activities in support of the build program.


  • Plan site set-up to move labour, plant, and materials around site efficiently (eg hoarding, gates, site accommodation, cranes, hoists, security, temporary services, material delivery and waste management strategy, catering).
  • Plan internal and external logistics routes through the project phases focusing on separation of vehicles, machinery and people. Lay down areas and offloading points.
  • Pre-plan the usage of key assets such as hoists to ensure planned assets meet the needs of the program.


  • Create a secure site
  • Responsible for all traffic management internally and externally, weighbridges and road network cleanliness.
  • Manage installation of site accommodation and manage these facilities
  • Create operational procedures and method statements
  • Organise site inductions, ensure induction records are securely stored.
  • Create a schedule of logistics meetings and ensure logistics is represented at site meetings.

Supply chain management:

  • Describe the characteristics of the site, including site access /egress, storage capacity and arrangement by programme, labour, hoists, cranes etc
  • Use the description to produce daily, weekly and long term movements plans
  • Understand procurement arrangements
  • Control materials in and out of site.
  • Plan and integrate with key contractors to meet the needs of the planned programme
  • Assist in the evaluation of potential logistic suppliers and appropriate delivery management booking systems.

  • Variation control and early communication of foreseeable change
  • Commercial/contract basic understanding
  • Utilise business management system procedures.
  • Record keeping and key performance indicator (KPI) production.

If you have relevant large scale construction experience please get in contact. In my opinion this is a great opportunity to work for a very interesting company who are very busy right now and have huge plans for London over the next few years. They treat their staff incredibly well and support them in with any additional training or career progression.

The company love people that @think outside of the box' and like to approach things in a slightly different way to your usual construction companies.

If you would like to know more please get in touch with Ricky in the London office on 0203 871 4912 or send in your CV and I will be in touch.
