Construction & Installation Project Manager (2 roles)

Heat Networks

Reading or London

Salary: to £55k (max) plus excellent benefits

Working for one of the largest and most diverse energy companies in the UK. This business designs, constructs and adopts multi-utility infrastructures for both new housing and commercial developments in the UK.

They provide a single point of contact for their clients, which provides continuity in business relations with them and ensures their requirements are fully met.

The business also ensures that the networks are constructed safely and to the correct specification, meaning that they can be operated and maintained in a safe and efficient manner for many years into the future.

The Heat Networks business contributes to the multi utility solution by delivering (design, build or adopt and operate) heat networks and energy centres for their clients. Due to continued business growth, a new opportunity for an experienced Construction Project Manager has arisen to join the team.

In this role, you will manage the Project Execution phase of HEAT Network projects, some of which will be defined as a Large Capital Project (LCP).

You will also be involved in the Project Development phase, as well as the hand over to Operations & Maintenance. You will lead a project team in line with company values, ethics and governance procedures, such as LCP, whilst still delivering the project scope.

In addition, you will ensure that the company commercial and contractual position is protected during the Project Execution phase, dealing with any contractual disputes/ claims/ variations in the first instance, escalating, where required, to the Head of Project Delivery.

To be successful in this role, you'll have a proven track record in utility construction with experience of managing projects of c. £10M. You will be qualified and experienced in construction site safety, e.g. CDM 2015, project management, e.g. PRINCE2 or APM and construction contracts, e.g. NEC3 or JCT.

You will possess solid leadership, decision making, management, organisational, communication and negotiating skills, so as to interact positively with clients and colleagues. You will have a strong commercial and contractual acumen giving you the ability to have a flexible approach to client requirements, in order to deliver solutions efficiently and safely.

In return, we can offer you a competitive salary package in a position which has excellent routes for career progression within the Group. You will also enjoy an attractive benefits package, including pension, share plans, a generous leave entitlement (with options to purchase additional leave), staff tarriffs on energy, phone and broadband bills, plus a host of other rewards and lifestyle benefits.

Should your application be successful, you may be subject to the Company's verification and vetting process. This includes a basic criminal record check.
