Contracts Administrator                                                                                

Rhino Asphalt Solutions is a market leader in highway maintenance, contracting unique proprietary patching and repair products to resolve everyday problems. We have an annual turnover of £6million working for Local Authorities and Highways England Contractors on the motorway, trunk road and local highway networks.

We have an opening for a contracts administrator at our Sheerness office in Kent. The role will be to support the contracts manager and Operational Managers to deliver exceptional service to our clients. This is a key role as it directly influences our ability to deliver on our promises and ensure a smooth running contracting operation.

You will be part of a small team focused on running the contracting operation dedicated to giving great customer satisfaction.

The specific tasks for this role are:

  • Ordering materials and deliveries to our UK depots
  • Direct liaison with customers regarding programming works
  • Following the QA, Environmental and Safety accreditations in place
  • Arranging plant hire, materials and traffic management
  • Booking accommodation for the crews
  • Compiling stock take figures
  • Plant and equipment hire
  • Managing vehicle maintenance schedules and bookings and associated records
  • Making up contract files and supplying information to the client
  • Contract review
  • Checking invoices against orders prior to authorisation for payment


The successful candidate may well have a mixture of both Vocational experience and academic certification. So it could be that someone with Business or Construction qualifications would be interested but equally, experience in the sector would make qualifications less of a requirement.

Ideally we would like to employ someone with knowledge of highways or construction with experience of working alongside stringent health and safety regulations. The ability to follow procedure is imperative but also is the desire to deliver great service, do a good job, be helpful and contribute to a team result.

We are of course heavily invested in IT so knowing your way around Microsoft products and bespoke systems is a must.

You will need to be numerate, literate, accurate and possess very good telephone skills.

A grasp of the implications of decisions you make on the safety and well-being of our teams working in live traffic environments is absolutely fundamental to the role.


Rhino has a culture of a family business that’s on the move. Growth is on the agenda but so is being part of the team, or the herd as we affectionately call it. We have a culture of support alongside a culture of action and getting the job done. If you can demonstrate these attributes to us then you could be the one. To be at Rhino is a rewarding and valued experience. The staff churn is low and our people highly value the environment in which they work.

So if you fit the description or some part of it, we would like to hear from you. Please submit a cover letter/introduction to tell us why you think you are right for the role and we’ll guarantee to read your CV.
