SCAPE - Framework Manager

Our Client

SCAPE are a public-sector partnership that helps to improve the buildings that we use, the roads we travel on, and the places we live.

They are a public sector organisation, dedicated to creating spaces, places, and experiences that leave a sustainable legacy for your community.

SCAPE are a new client, this was the first of a few initials assignment that we were provided following their appointment of the new Operations Director, who we’ve worked with for many years.

Assignment Details

Due to the upcoming award of a new consultancy framework, the Operations Director required a new hire to support regional consultancy projects.

AR Resourcing were appointed to recruit a Senior Framework Manager to lead construction contractor relationships from inception to aftercare, ensuring contractors are accountable and deliver against agreed commitments.

We were briefed to identify senior procurement and supply chain managers with strong construction project experience from a top 25 main contractor. A strong understanding of JCT or NEC, together with solid contract negotiation and drafting experience was also required.

What We Did

We provided SCAPE our Contingent Exclusive (Plan 2) recruitment service, we were exclusive for a fixed period to identify, qualify and present suitable candidates.

We contacted our active and passive candidate network across regional cost consultancies.

As this was exclusive, we head hunted from a number of competitors to identify new candidates, and we prioritised this assignment over all Contingent roles.

We also advertised the role on our website, LinkedIn, job boards and our Job Alerts candidate email to help identify additional candidates.

The challenge with this assignment was finding candidates of an appropriate calibre within the salary band, as SCAPE are a public-sector partnership their salaries didn’t initially line up to the consultancy candidate pool that we were approaching. When interviewing candidates we qualified their experience of project exposure, stakeholder management, and contractual understanding.

The Outcome

Four CVs were shortlisted within two weeks, two candidates were selected for interview.

Two candidates were invited back for a final interview, and the preferred candidate was successfully offered and appointed.

Here's what our client said...
What I liked about working with Adam was the extra detail he provided on the candidate summary coversheet which was massively helpful to us. It made it so easy for us to decide who we wanted to interview. I’ve not had anything like it from any other agency.
