Job description

An exciting new opportunity has arisen for a Site Supervisor to work on a Flood Risk Management scheme project on the River Trent and River Dove for one of the UK’s leading Engineering Main Contractors.


The Outline Business Case for Phase 2 of the Burton-upon-Trent Flood Risk Management Scheme (FRMS) has identified that remedial work to the flood defences protecting Burton is required.  The existing defences comprise approximately 9.6km of walls and embankments along the left (west) bank of the River Trent.

Phase 1 of the Burton-upon-Trent FRMS was undertaken in 2007.  Works targeted sections of the defences which were below a water level with a 1 in 200 (0.5% AEP) chance of occurring.  However, it was recognised that further work to the defences would be required in the future.  Phase 2 predominantly targets areas which were not included in the Phase 1 scheme and where concerns exist around the integrity of the defences.


To report to the Site Manager/Project Manager, report on the construction processes on multiple reaches on Burton flood defence. They will supervise the day to day works within the sections for self-delivery works and sub contract works. They will work with the engineering team to check and manage the quality, health and safety and environmental requirements on site so that the works are constructed as per the works information and GT procedures.


We are looking for passion and a commitment for delivering excellence. If you have a solid experience as a site supervisor, with solid IT skills and a fine attention to detail working on civil engineering projects then get in touch as I want to hear from you, especially if you have worked on Environment Agency schemes. Obviously, you’ll have the usual good stuff such as sound knowledge of H&S and CDM as well as relevant tickets to include CSCS and SMSTS, but we are looking for more than just that-we are looking for the right person to work safely, motivate and manage the subcontractors on site and to strive for exceptional levels of performance.
