Your purpose:

Working within our brilliant Project Controls team alongside project managers and technical discipline leads. You’ll be producing, updating, maintaining, and reporting on the project programmes and schedules. You’ll also be presenting to stakeholders and communicating progress and changes to critical path/key milestones and highlighting any potential issues.

Collaboration will be key. There’ll be plenty of opportunity to work with clients both in the office and site based. Also working with PMs, Cost Engineers, and project teams across design phases of projects as well as procurement and execution stages.

We work on a wide variety of multidisciplinary projects, so you’ll experience a real breadth and depth of work in this role.

What can you bring?

Most important is your passion for problem solving to deliver quality projects to our clients. We would also like some of the following:

  • Ability to develop initial baseline schedules with little project information. This requires previous experience in infrastructure/nuclear projects.
  • Assist in the preparation and management of overview and strategic programmes, including design, procurement, and construction schedules together with supporting information required schedules.
  • Include all project stages from initiations to completion in the baseline and identify stage gates accordingly.
  • Coordinate and manage the preparation and development of master planning, engineering, procurement, and construction schedules together with associated information required schedules.
  • Establish and agree project reporting procedures, prepare, and present monthly project progress. Develop project and programme dashboard templates to be used across the programme by designer and contractors.
  • Review the schedules and related documents from the designers and contractors including monthly reports and analyse the content to ensure compliance with project objectives.
  • Review schedule trends to identify problem areas and recommend corrective action to management.  Monitor actual progress against planned progress.
  • Monitor engineering design progress, material and equipment procurement and construction and commissioning status.
  • Prepare progress monitoring tools using earned value for the management and monitoring of the above-mentioned schedules.  Monitor progress both on and off site.  Identify deviations (progress trends) in both construction and procurement progress and suggest possible courses of corrective action.
  • Working closely with the Project Controls Manager and Project Team to ensure that the ‘programme’ is feasible, complies with the Project Master Plan and contractual documents.
  • Carry out studies into scheduling, manpower, cash flow, and material flow as needed.
  • Attend offsite meetings as requested by the client.
  • Review schedules for slippage of key dates.
  • Assist in the defence / approval of any claim for time extension or major change to the schedule.
  • Other duties as requested from time to time.
  • Issue high-level schedule weekly updates.
  • Identify and report main issues interfering with progress.
  • Identify and report on measures for improving schedule performance.
  • Establish Scheduling, reporting procedures, tools, templates, instruction, etc. to standardize the work across the programme.
  • Monitor the timing of submittals against schedule requirements.
  • Develop and monitor programme KPIs.

What we’re looking for?

  • Ideally you should possess a degree in construction management and / or civil engineering and hold a membership/chartership from a construction related professional body.
