Planner/Senior Planner - Fledgling Construction Business

West London

c£75-85k p/annum plus benefits (will go higher for right individual)

Are you a Planner with aspirations of running your own department or being the sole Planning function for a construction business?

MCG Construction have been given a new mandate by an exciting "up and coming" construction business who are looking to appoint their first Planner/Senior Planner. The potential with this role is huge and we believe you'll be suitably impressed with our client's credible approach and ambitions.

So who are they?

Our client is a fledgling construction firm with major aspirations. Born off the back of a relationship with one key technology client, our client has a guaranteed pipeline of work for the next few years and possesses a credible growth plan and ambitions for the future. This is supported by the recent appointment of an impressive leadership team, made up of senior figures from well-respected business across the London construction market. Make no mistake, this business is going places. Some facts about this business:

  • Newly-established but already financially sound.
  • Impressive Leadership team.
  • A cautious but credible growth plan.
  • Already one major £100m+ project in their portfolio.

This current requirement is for a Planner/Senior Planner to effectively undertake the Planning function for their flagship project and for the business in general. This role is currently being performed by an external consulting firm and our client would like to bring this "in house" as soon as possible. Initially, the focus of this role will be as the Lead Planner for a £100m+ technology construction scheme (complete build, i.e. structural, fit-out, MEP, etc) in West London but this is likely to quickly include aiding with other projects at preconstruction stage plus further tendering. This role is expected to become varied quite quickly.

The long term prospects for this role are impressive; our client sees this individual as their "Head of Planning" in the near future and as their project and client portfolio grows, it is anticipated that this will become a management role fairly quickly. This role is not for the faint-hearted!

Does this sound like you?

  • A self-sufficient Planner with experience of working on complicated UK construction schemes. Large project experience (i.e. £75m+) would be a distinct advantage but not essential. Experience of pharmaceuticals, data centre or healthcare builds would be even more preferable!
  • NEC4 Contract experience.
  • Comfortable engaging with senior stakeholders.
  • Preconstruction and live project experience.
  • Proficient with Asta Powerproject software.
  • Extremely ambitious individual looking for a genuine growth opportunity.
  • Consultancy or Contractor background (they'll also consider client-side).
  • Eligible to work in the UK and flexible to travel to West London on a daily basis.

In return, our client is offering a basic salary of between £75,000 and £85,000 per annum plus a benefits package but will potentially go higher (within reason) for the right person. The package will include a car/allowance, pension, health insurance and death in service.
