- Working closely with the appointed contractor(s) and the operations team to ensure the works are delivered to the project programme, in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.

- Acting as a leader on site and champion for a positive safety culture. Ensuring site activities comply with planning consents and SHE legislation, and routine reports and KPIs are submitted to the Project Manager.

To be considered for this role, we would love you to have:

- Experience in site supervision within construction or utilities, ideally within a High Voltage electricity construction environment. Experience in construction access works would also be beneficial.

- An understanding of project planning and in particular tracking progress against agreed plans, along with a working knowledge of quality requirements, monitoring inspection and test plans.

- Working knowledge of safety and CDM regulations within a construction or engineering industry.

- Good written and oral communication skills, including the capability of representing the project internally and externally.
