Job Specification

So why do you get out of bed in the morning?

Whilst you’re thinking, grab a cup of tea and we’ll tell you why some of our employees do:

“To work with fantastic people” “To feel challenged and have fun” “To feel proud of what I’ve achieved”.

Sounds good doesn’t it?

At Tarmac, ‘who you are’ matters.  We want to get to know you.  If you share our values and are proud of a job well done, collaborative in working well with others and ambitious to make things better, then have a read of what we have on offer. 

We currently have a rare - and senior opportunity - in Tarmac’s Norfolk Contracting team. We’re working hard to create a dynamic and inclusive environment and it’s important that our people come from a variety of different backgrounds. However, this General Manager role is a varied, complex and rewarding position that requires the ability to strategically drive the Highways business for Norfolk and the South. Therefore, you will need previous highways experience as well as a strong customer focus, influencing skills, leadership experience and excellent commercial knowledge.

Reporting directly to the Director of Highways Services, you will be responsible for defining and delivering the area’s strategy, business plans and objectives. You will provide leadership, guidance and direction to the area teams to ensure that all stated objectives, aims and targets are achieved. The General Manager will ensure that the team maximise financial returns (including profit, cash, capex) and ensure full compliance with all safety and business policies and procedures.

In return, we offer an extensive range of career development opportunities and industry-leading rewards, incentives and benefits.

Some of the range of benefits on offer to employees include:

Generous bonus scheme
