Assistant Planner

£35,000 - £50,000 pa

Bristol, City of Bristol, UK


Ref: MCGSH106

Date Advertised:4th February 2020

Start Date:5th March 2020

Assistant Planner

Salary: £35,000 - £50,000

Based in Bristol

Our client is a construction expert recruiting for an Assistant Planner to join their successful South West Construction division based in Bristol. Working on general construction projects for schools, offices, student accommodation, etc.

Assisting with the tender, pre-construction and delivery of a range of opportunities and live projects, working alongside and under the direction of one or more Senior Planners, carrying out a range of assigned tasks which will grow as your experience develops.

It will involve drafting up programmes for review, preparing logistics diagrams, visiting sites and monitoring progress.

You would need to be able to communicate with team members and sub-contractors to either relay or gather information, and to assist with preparing reports and updating information displayed on sites.

Rather than being restricted to working on the same type of projects over and over, you'll have the opportunity to get involved in every area of the business and not restricted to a specialist area. Projects may include schools, prisons, well known-retail brands, head offices for some of the world's largest cooperate companies, and many more.

No-one likes being stuck behind a screen Monday to Friday. You'll be working on projects at all stages from tender to live projects and opportunities to visit the work you're involved in.

You'll be constantly thinking of the bigger picture and considering all involved with any changes that may need implemented

Changes can arise at any point and therefore, you should be able to react and act efficiently and effectively

During meetings, you'll need to report on project progress to stakeholders at all levels.

Be prepared to be the 'go to' if someone has a planning question on a project you're working on.

Just like a marathon has a finish line, a project has a completion date. It's your job to break it down, create the trail, demonstrate clear milestones and expect some trip-ups.

Experience required:

Software skills - Asta Power project experience or MS Project and MS PowerPoint (2D) or Sketchup (3D) for logistics would be advantageous

We are looking for someone who has a construction qualification either degree or college (HNC/ONC) and who has a couple of years site experience on general construction (schools, offices, student accommodation, etc.)

Here's what we offer:

Basic salary plus car/travel allowance

Private healthcare including private GP service

Discounts such as gym, cinema etc to ensure you're still loving ISG even when you leave the office

Pension scheme

Your work-life balance really matters to us, so in addition to your holiday allowance we have a You Day to allow you to take an additional day off to celebrate a special event, spend time with your family or just do something that will make your life easier or more enjoyable.

It's your day so dress for your day, we have faith in our people to make the right choice of what to wear and when

So that you can start your weekend just that little bit earlier, we finish at 16.00 on a Friday
