Planner (P6 NEC form of contract)

  • £60,000 - £80,000 + Benefits
  • Specialist Sub Contract
  • West London

About the company:

Based in Central London, our privately owned client is a leading name within the enabling works industry that prides themselves on their excellent reputation to deliver projects within budget and to programme, whilst always maintaining high standards and quality. Operating primarily as principle contractor, they undertake technical and complex enabling works projects throughout the City with package values ranging up to £25M and current turnover stands in excess of £120M.

Our client recruits only the best people, who are motivated, dedicated and can work with a professional outlook. Having worked closely with this client for many years, I would highly recommend them as they offer an excellent working environment where they encourage individuals to grow, develop and expand. Furthermore, with a close management team, the business has the ability to offer a real family feel, assuring that you will be a name rather than just a number within the organisation.

About the opportunity:

Due to successful company expansion and a healthy pipeline of work, my client is currently recruiting permanently for a P6 Planner with NEC form of contract experience who will be tasked with managing the planning process of a large groundworks package in West London.

General duties and responsibilities will include the following:

  • You will be critical in supporting the Project Management & Contracts Management in producing, overseeing and monitoring of the contract and construction programmes 
  • You will support the PM in briefings to proactively focus design (temporary and permanent), procurement, labour, plant and staff in order to secure programmed dates and milestones. 
  • You will have competence in Asta Power Project (or similar planning software) and a well-developed ability to communicate technical issues clearly.
  • You will have the ability to read, absorb and visualise information from drawings and text and convert this into a robust vision for construction.
  • You will be a communicator who can motivate ancillary staff who produce 3D models and ‘cartoon’ sketches, so that our proposals are set before the client using visual aids as well as text. Constructive communication with Estimators is also important.
  • Experience of a busy and fast moving ‘Enabling works specialist’ tendering office and the necessary ability to cope under pressure.
  • Broad engineering knowledge – knowing when something looks right.
  • Numerate and articulate.

To fulfil this opportunity, my client is ideally looking for a professional who has spent a proportion of his / her career on building sites as an engineer, project manager or similar, preferably in the narrow field of the enabling works industry but this is not essential if strong planning experience can be shown in this field. 

About the benefits and rewards:

If successful you will receive a strong basic salary estimated at £60,000 to £80,000 per annum (based on level of experience) with a package to match.

If interested in this opportunity, please send a copy of your CV to or call 01923 750 095 / 07876 864 945 to discuss this further on a confidential basis.
