This post is being re-advertised therefore previous applicants need not apply.

Be part of an exciting multi-million-pound infrastructure programme, that will transform Liverpool’s highway. Take the lead on site by managing contractors to ensure works are delivered to standard, on time and to budget.

Liverpool City Council has embarked on a major improvement programme that involves all parts of the organisation. Transport & Highways is especially focussed on delivering a range of improvements across the whole directorate. It has recently completed a service review which has identified the need for a team of experienced and highly effective works supervisors to deliver an extensive suite of major projects covering all elements of the highway infrastructure.

As part of the team you will be instrumental in guiding the on-site works to ensure that contractors are fulfilling their contractual commitments through delivery of a project that meets the required quality and the needs of the Highway Programme.

You will spend a large percentage of your time on site to ensure the works are progressing to plan and contactors are fulfilling their contractual commitments. You will need to possess a CSCS card and have a qualification in construction.

You will report to a Project Manager - Major Projects. You will be a self-starter with ambition and high expectations of yourself and those you work with.

This is a unique opportunity to join an organisation on an improvement journey that will provide the opportunity to play a key part in its delivery.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Liaison with the construction manager to ensure any issues are resolved and works are delivered to plan.
  • Ensure works are delivered to CDM regulations, HSE Legislation, Chapter 8 requirements, DMRB and MCHW standards
  • Interface to other Council teams to ensure approvals are provided in a timely manner
  • Provide regular updates to the Project Manager
  • Manage and plan overall team workload, allocating day-to-day priorities and allocating manpower daily tasks

If you would like to talk to a member of the team about the role or have an informal discussion, please contact Dorothy Joyce, Programme Manager via email or 07925 358 450.

Please note that in accordance with the Council’s policy, employees who are in a formal redeployment situation will be considered in the first instance for all vacancies.
