Principal Designer (CDM) Recruitment Specialists

After more than 15 years recruiting for businesses throughout the UK construction sector, Vertical Recruitment’s directors have seen the introduction of the 2015 CDM Regulations transform the demand placed on organisations when it comes to managing health and safety risks and coordinating multiple contractors.

This has made Principal Designers an essential appointment, and we have unparalleled expertise in finding suitable individuals for the most demanding roles, not only to meet your obligations under CDM 2015, but to go beyond that and truly minimise your exposure to health and safety risks.

We can recruit for all of the below, as well as other related disciplines not listed here:

  • CDM Advisors
  • CDM Risk Assessment
  • Former CDM Coordinators
  • Health & Safety F10 Management
  • Principal Contractor (PC) Roles
  • Principal Designer (PD) Jobs
  • Site CDM Surveyors

The candidates we put forwards have the knowledge and skills needed to liaise with multiple contractors when necessary, and to submit F10 notification to the HSE if work is scheduled to last for more than the threshold of 500 person-days, 30 working days, or more than 20 personnel working at once.

How Vertical Recruitment Help

Every candidate search we undertake is underpinned by knowledge and knowhow:

  • The Vertical Salary Review, carried out in association with Place North West, tells us the current rates of pay for Principal Designer roles and other disciplines.
  • Our Job Alerts service automatically reaches out to candidates who are a good match for the job description, to maximise the pool of engaged talent.
  • For multiple vacancies over time, consider our Retained Recruitment Service, a unique way to secure our services across a series of talent searches.

By combining these capabilities, we develop close long-term relationships with clients and candidates alike, allowing us to produce shortlists where every applicant is the closest possible match for the advertised role.

For Principal Designer vacancies, this covers the full range of construction projects, including demolition and refurbishment, new-build developments, conversions, extensions, maintenance and repair, as well as candidates with general capabilities across the whole spectrum.
