Contract Flooring Manager | Full Time

We are looking for an experienced Contract Flooring Manager to head up our team of 20 people, including surveyors and flooring fitters, with an annual turnover in excess of £2 million. Working across the East of England, Glasswells supplies and installs contract flooring into new build housing developments, hotels, schools and hospitals.

You must be capable of performing all aspects of the role from day one. You will need to demonstrate strong leadership skills, liaising with clients and contractors on site, and show that you can plan, control and execute projects to completion, on time, in a safe way and to budget.

Surveying and estimating skills for all types of flooring and carpet installations are essential, along with a full driving license. You will be confident using Microsoft Office and full training will be given for our in-house sales, stock and accounting system. We use the Masterpiece estimating system and experience of working with this would be useful, but not essential.

Glasswells also supplies and installs contract furniture, curtains and blinds, an area which we would like you to expand.

Hours are 8.00am – 5.00pm Monday to Friday, or the required hours to get the job done, and salary will be based on experience (£35k – £45k OTE). Other benefits include a company car, group pension, staff discount and discretionary bonuses based on company and personal performance.

Glasswells is a family run business which was founded over 70 years ago with a strong heritage in the East of England. This is a rare opportunity to join the management team and we welcome enthusiastic, sales driven applicants who are passionate about flooring and providing the very best level of customer service.
