£55,000 - £60,000 yearly
One of my construction clients has a need for a Planner to join the team working on a variety of new build projects in the South East. The person my client is looking for must have experience working on build programmes from design stage through to completion. Ideally you will have used Asta or similar planning tools/software. As well as having good planning experience it is imperative you have strong written and verbal communication skills as you will be working with other disciplines and some external consultants. Any experience working on claims would also be beneficial but not essential.
The projects you will be working on range in size and value (between £10 and £50m) with a mixture of residential, hotels and some retail/industrial schemes. The sites will be based across London and the South East region.
My client has gained an excellent reputation for a quality product and the main reason for needing an extra planner in the team is down to repeat (not tendered) negotiated business. They have a very healthy pipeline of new projects for the next 2 years and this is likely to grow again over the coming months. The senior directors of the business have invested a great deal of time and effort to make sure all employees are supported regardless of level or experience. They have created a professional, safe and enjoyable place to work where everyone feels valued.
What they want:
Planner with experience working on construction projects c£10m+
Someone who enjoys being part of a supportive and proactive team
Planner who can work with "sometimes" limited information
Someone who is motivated and ambitious
Planner who ideally has used Asta Power Project
Someone who understands and respects deadlines
Planner who understands how to sequence a new build construction project from demolition stage through to handover stage
Someone who can demonstrate good lengths of employment with each company
This is a staff only position and I must stress that my client will only consider people who can demonstrate longevity with previous employers. You must also live within a commutable distance to the office in Kent.
