A client of that size is always going to be demanding but we know we're up to the task, we've been on site here for 3 years and have been a great success. This site is our high water mark and we're now using it as the blueprint for how we run other contracts - it's even helped us win new ones!

Plus we'd like you to be able to offer advice to the Engineers reporting into you, you may even get chance to get your hands on some tools from time to time.

Owing to the nature of the site health and safety is of paramount importance so you will need to hold a NEBOSH qualification or equivalent. There will be people alongside you to assist with paperwork such as RAMS and work permits but you'll take the lead.
