Borehamwood, Hertfordshire

£60,000 – £90,000 + Package (depending on experience)

PLANNER needed with Reinforced Concrete Frame & Groundwork subcontractor experience for an immediately available position.


About the company:

Our client is a Reinforced Concrete Frame & Groundwork Sub-Contractor that is based just outside London in Hertfordshire (just outside the M25). Their annual turnover is around £200m. I have met with this company multiple times and having got to know the directors of the business and their values, I would highly recommend this contractor as leader with in this sector. They are constantly investing back into the business and are developing their systems and people as the company grows. They have a diverse client base and are working with top main contractors and developers all over London and the surrounding areas. This is a great company to consider working for now, but with the ability to watch your role expand and build into a senior member of the team, this offers a great opportunity for anyone with the right experience.


Requirements / Responsibilities:

  • 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 ‘Concrete Frame and Groundwork Specialists’ tendering office and the necessary ability to cope under pressure.
  • Broad engineering knowledge – knowing when something looks right.
  • Numerate and articulate.

To fulfil this role, we would ideally hope for the candidate to have spent a proportion of his / her career on building sites as an engineer, project manager or similar, preferably in the narrow field of groundworks and concrete frame construction but this is not essential if strong planning experience can be shown in this field.


About the rewards & benefits:

If successful you will receive a strong basic salary estimated at £60,000 to £90,000 per annum (based on level of experience) with a package to match. This is negotiable at the point of interview and we are considering both PAYE or self employed individuals for this role.
