The Contracts Manager is responsible for ensuring commercial performance of contracts so that projects undertaken by TAIT entitles in the UK, including Brilliant Stages, the Netherlands, the Middle East and Asia are completed on time and to budget. Key stakeholders are General Counsel and Legal in the US, Business Development, Projects and Senior Leadership in the UK. Typical projects are between £150,000 and £15,000,000 in value and may be delivered anywhere globally.
The Contracts Manager will play a key role in supporting the Senior Legal Counsel during all phases of the project lifecycle, through bidding, negotiation, commercial management and claims management during delivery.
To carry out the Contracts Manager role effectively requires the ability to apply your knowledge and experience of Design and Build construction projects to influence, teach and hold to scrutiny the administration and performance of projects. You will need to be adept at establishing entitlements under contract from varying standards of contemporaneous records and differing competencies at contract administration as well as interpreting direct Project Manager reporting into early identification of additional works or delays. For complex matters, such as extension of time and delay and disruption claims, and under other exceptional circumstances, the Contracts Manager will be required to lead those processes to conclusion.
You will assist the Senior Legal Counsel and Contracts Administrator in providing a common thread between bidding, delivery and close out of projects by ensuring commercial requirements under RFPs are understood by Bid Managers and commercial management by Project Managers is compliant with their contracts, timeous and preserves TAIT’s entitlement to time and money.
You will provide Project Managers with advice for contract administration and contract interpretation to help ensure projects are managed and executed in a timely, cost effective and professional manner. Demonstrate continuous effort to improve good practice, compliance, reporting and to work cooperatively and jointly to provide discrete oversight.
