We currently have an urgent mandate for a Planning Manager to occupy an important position on a project near Peterborough in Cambridgeshire. Our client is working on a programme of regional civil engineering schemes and needs an individual with strong technical Project Controls capabilities combined and a good understanding of planning best practice, implementing systems and processes, programme assurance, etc.
This role exists due to an internal transfer/promotion and will have responsibility for three direct Planning reports (three Regional Planners of intermediate level). Their client has an existing (mature) programme but many of the systems and processes have not been sorted out and/or are not being adhered to by the relevant parties. As a result, our client is initially seeking an individual able to assess the programme and devise methods for process improvement and to create standardised procedures, whilst ensuring that all planning and project controls duties are being carried out to a high standard.
Our client has won numerous employer and brand awards over the last decade and can offer the opportunity to work multi-sector and internationally (if of interest) in the future; for the time being this is an ideal opportunity for an individual living around the Peterborough, Cambridge, Leicester area. They would be interested in hearing from you if you have the following skillset:
- Significant Planning & Project Controls experience, ideally within the engineering sector.
- Strong understanding of best practice, programme assurance, etc.
- Relevant engineering/construction degree desirable.
- Good client-facing and stakeholder management skills.
- Previous man management experience.
- Eligible to work in the UK.
Our client is offering a basic salary of up to £70,000 per annum plus a travel/car allowance of circa £6,000 p/annum, pension, health insurance and various other flexible benefits. Apply now for immediate consideration or contact Richard Evans on 01189 077882 for further details.
