Job description

We are working with a privately owned and expanding Civil Construction Contractor, with a headcount of 240 and projected annual revenue of 180M.

This position would suit someone with a few years of site-based engineering and management experience who is looking to break into planning. Mind you, we would still like to encourage expressions of interest from fully fledged planners!

  • Produce high quality programmes for live projects, including pre-construction and construction phases.
  • Monitor and control project effectiveness, key outputs trackers and advise of any deviation.
  • Prepare short and long-term resource allocation plans based on input from all key players and team members.
  • Identify changes in work scope in the project plan and produce impacted programmes.
  • Develop claims for Extension of Time and narratives to support programmes.
  • Ensure to convey required project data and information to project teams.
  • Prepare and present regular internal and external project reports / dashboards for management.
  • Gather actual data, update project schedule, and develop reliable schedule forecast with support from project team.

To be successful in this role, it is likely that you:
  • Hold a relevant degree qualification in engineering or construction, or hold extensive practical experience
  • Have a background in operational roles, for example as a Site Engineer or Site Agent, ideally with planning experience
  • Have working knowledge of planning and scheduling systems such as Primavera P6, Asta and MS Project.

The position offers a salary of between 60,000 - 70,000 per annum with a car allowance, private medical, enhanced contribution pension and an annual holiday entitlement of 24 days which increases with service.
