licensed Asbestos Contract Manager

£36,400 - £46,800 Salary depending on experience, 5.6 weeks holiday, company vehicle, expenses, overnight allowance, and pension.

Kusten Vorland is a dynamic licensed asbestos removal contractor with our Head Office in Cardiff, a five-minute walk from the train station. We are a controlled niche of 25 experts providing asbestos management and removal solutions along the M4 corridor.  We are progressive and look for limit-less talent to add to the creativity and experience of our established team.

We are not looking for your usual Contract Manager.

Charismatic enough to handle site supervisors and operatives with ease. You must have the initiative to act commercially, offer legally compliant advice and manage a portfolio of our clients who will rely on your expertise. You will be capable of taking less experienced teammates under your wing. Obviously, there are some prerequisites:

Essential qualifications:

  • ARCA RSPH Level 4 Contracts Manager.

  • ARCA RPE inspection certificate.

  • ARCA POW and risk assessment.

  • Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course.

Desirable qualifications:

  • Level 6 or 7 NVQ Diploma in Construction Site Management or equivalent. 

  • PASMA Towers for Managers certificate.

  • IPAF MEWPs for Managers certificate.


  • Proven track record in pricing and winning work.

  • Competent in delivering and managing licensed asbestos removal projects UK-wide.

  • Able to carry out audits using the ARCA app or competent at audits equivalent to Contract Manager standard.

  • Capable of interpreting audit results to make improvements where necessary within the company.

  • Must be experienced in liaising with senior management and authorities including HSE inspectors.

  • Must take pride in their work and appearance and have confidence in their approach. A confident team leader.

  • Exceptional delivery, able to plan and manage jobs so they complete on time and within budget.

  • Capable of creating immaculately presented workspaces, both work stores and client sites.

  • Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written. Absolutely computer literate.

  • Good working knowledge of asbestos legislation and removal techniques.

  • Must be confident in negotiating with suppliers.

  • Must have excellent organisational ability. 

  • Immaculate paperwork, able to write reports, detailed cost proposals and site-specific method statements and risk assessments.

  • Confident in taking responsibility and accountability for Health & Safety on site.

  • Must be highly flexible and self-motivated, able to work from your own initiative.

You will usually be based across South Wales, Bristol and Wiltshire- sometimes further afield. So occasional travel and overnight stays are required.

Kusten Vorland offers unlimited potential to grow with our business and improve your prospects and your remuneration accordingly.  There will be a six-month probation period. On successful completion your opportunity to grow within your role is literally down to your own resourcefulness. Within Kusten Vorland cross department working and capability brings additional rewards.
