Assistant P6 Planner - Rail

South Yorkshire

A rare opportunity to join a Top 10 rail contractor to step into Planning, whilst offering you an unrivalled amount of support and opportunities to progress your career! So, if you're an Engineer with an understanding of P6, keep on reading...


Our client is dominant in the rail infrastructure space, having operated on multi-disciplinary projects within this sector for over 20 years, and are now venturing into new engineering markets. Their outstanding quality of project delivery has enabled them to become a contractor of choice, thriving in what could be perceived as a 'quiet' rail market in recent years.

With significant project wins across the business and plans to continue to grow, they are now looking to add an Assistant Planner to the team based out of their South Yorkshire office.


This role will come with plenty of variety in terms of the projects you will be working on, including bridges, structures, utilities and infrastructure/civils schemes all within rail frameworks or independent projects.

As an Assistant Planner yourself, you will be expected to support the Senior Planner on a large volume of schemes within a fast-paced environment. You will be involved within the creation of design and construction programmes, as well as developing efficient, effective and cost accurate plans, whilst using your engineering skillset to analyse the programme. Are you up for the challenge?


So now I have got your attention, I bet you're wondering if you fit the bill of what I'm looking for? Well, this role is a fantastic - perhaps once in a lifetime - opportunity to kick-start your career within planning. Most companies nowadays look for the all-singing all-dancing Senior Planner, however my client is wanting to bring someone up through the ranks, so you must be passionate about career progression particularly within planning. Is this person you?

Although there will be plenty of training and support to get you to become their next best Planner, what is fundamental for this position is your knowledge within rail civil engineering. Due to the variety of schemes you will be working on, you will need to have a solid understanding of rail civil engineering projects, ideally as an Engineer as this will enable you to look at programmes from a more technical perspective, rather than just knowing how to input data in to P6.


You're the Assistant Planner I'm looking for if you hold a minimum of a HNC in Civil Engineering and have project experience within rail civil engineering. This role would strongly suit someone from an Engineering background (e.g. Site Engineer) with a working knowledge of P6 looking to move in to a planning position.


For the grade-A Assistant Planner, my client is offering a basic salary up to �30k plus car or car allowance, pension, healthcare and 25 days holiday (+ bank holiday).
