I have a current requirement for a Senior Planner to based in Birmingham with a major construction company. The role will be a split between pre-construction and live project work that includes a number of framework projects for the construction of educational facilities and student accomodation. Each of these project sites, which are all based around the Midlands will require monthly visits, whilst the remainder of your time will be based on tender work. Planners who work on a successful tender will then continue to work on this at construction stage.

Applications are welcome from intermediate planners looking to make a step up as well as senior-level candidates and the client would consider each carefully. You will be reporting the Regional Planning Manager and the Framework Manager on weekly/monthly progress producing internal and external reports, and maintaining accurate and detailed project plans, advising stakeholders on programme implications.
