I am currently recruiting for a Planner to work with a leading building contractor who is looking to expand their planning function within the West Midlands region. The role will be based in Birmingham working on a variety of building projects ranging from £1m - £40m in value throughout various stages of the project lifecycle. It is therefore crucial that applicants have experience in preconstruction as well as contract/site planning.

Reporting to the Planning Manager, you will join an existing team of Planners who are supporting the regional business unit in developing and maintaining a portfolio of project programmes and updating site teams on project progress. You will be using Asta Powerproject as your primary software tool in the production of project plans for residential, school and retail refurbishments and new builds.  

This position is open to Planners who have predominantly worked within the building industry who are looking to make a step up into a more independent role as well as those more established intermediate/senior-level Planners. Equally, applicants who come from a construction or site management background who also have gained direct exposure to project planning and using the Asta software are very welcome.  

Key requirements:
  • 3+ years of experience in a Project Planning role
  • Relevant Construction Management / Building qualifications
  • Asta Powerproject experience
  • Pre construction and Contract planning experience
  • Construction and Site Management background would be beneficial
  • Exposure to building projects in the residential, retail or education sectors
  • Ability to communicate effectively to site teams and subcontractors
