About The Opportunity
We will be celebrating our 50th anniversary this year, so let’s just say our Work-winning Team is doing something right. The rapid growth of the Carey Group has seen the evolution of our Work-winning Team, who now tender for up to 600 projects a year from £100k to £100m for a variety of clients, sectors, and regions.
