I am looking to embed a Construction Manager/Director within the Ministry of Defence’s project team at HMNB Clyde as part of an international consultancy’s engineering team.

The Programme is expected to last another 10 years with multiple project lifecycles to manage throughout your time there. This is an on-site role, primarily based at Faslane, with occasional trips to RNAD Coulport and into Glasgow for design/construction update meetings.

About the Project:
HMNB Clyde is undergoing a near £2 billion upgrade as part of the ~£30 billion Dreadnought Submarine Programme, delivering the UK’s future at-sea nuclear defence arsenal as a replacement to the current Vanguard Submarine Trident Nuclear Programme. As part of the Programme, Faslane is going through multiple multidisciplinary structural and infrastructure upgrades in order to support the new Dreadnought class vessels as well as improve operations on-site.

You will build relationships with large teams and key individuals to ensure effective collaboration on, and completion of, numerous large-scale design and build over the next decade. 

Due to the nature of work, you will be required to hold current, or obtain, SC or DV Clearance. Further, due to the nature of assets involved, only UK Nationals are eligible for this role.
