"If you are a Senior Planner looking for your next role and want to be involved in a major Aviation project then I've got the role for you! I've got an opportunity to work on a �54m package of works at one of the UK's largest airports."

The Company

This project is based with a leading main contractor with a turn over �2.8billion. They operate with three distinct business areas Housebuilding, Regeneration, and Construction & Investments (Infrastructure & Construction). Their infrastructure department is made up of several business units including Highways, Rail & Aviation, Water & Waste, Environment, and Power & Security. This project sits within their Aviation division, joining a project that is moving into its second phase. This main contractor has an amazing portfolio of work available within this division, the continuity of work in this area means that being closer to home will be a real option for you. Now looking for a Senior Planner to add to their busy Aviation order book.

Ideal Candidate

If you shy away from busy environments, look elsewhere! You will work with an array of different people, such as the Engineers and Quantity Surveyors, so the ability to thrive in a busy working environment is key to this role. Responsibilities of the role will not phase you, and the complexities of the day to day changes of the plan will be tackled head on! I am looking for a Senior Planner who is tenacious, can deal well with fast-paced environments and really wants to take on a career rather than just a job.

The Role

Your role as Senior planner will see you working on Aviation project running through to 2020. The Civils works that will take place will be centred around the 2024 traffic projections to improve the infrastructure of the Airport. The project will focus on parking, drainage, and the relocation of security boundary that will accommodate the changes. Specific responsibilities will include resourcing labour and cost loading materials & plant etc. You will also monitor the progress throughout the construction phase, comparing this to the original programme and projected schedule of work.


You are the perfect Senior Planner if you come from a Planning background within Aviation and are proficient using P6 & Asta Power projects. Your background in Civil Engineering will help you build programmes from scratch and work on them throughout the construction process. The main requirement for this role will be experience, due to the nature of the work previous "on site" exposure is essential to be successful in this role.

Salary and benefits

* Salary is circa �60k plus a car or car allowance, plus amazing benefits such as 25+ days holiday, healthcare, and pension scheme.
