Further information

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is looking to employ a full time Monitor to conduct site based audits/inspections on registered sites, companies and suppliers in and around central London.

Scheme Monitors visit registered projects to assess performance against the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice through observation and discussions with the site manager.  Following the visit, a brief report is produced outlining the findings and awarding a score reflecting the overall performance.  Monitors are also expected to provide guidance and encouragement in order to raise industry standards beyond statutory requirements.

The successful candidate will be expected to conduct an average of 12 visits per week to registered sites, the details of which will be provided by the Scheme’s administration office.  Following each visit, a written report must be prepared and submitted within agreed service levels.

Starting salary is £40,000 plus a generous benefits package including private healthcare, dental plan and a non-contributory pension plan.

You will be expected to conduct a minimum of 48 visits each month but will receive bonuses for performance beyond these targets.  This role has an OTE of £50,000 to £60,000.

Intensive field based training and appropriate administrative support will be provided.

Requirements

The successful candidate will be an experienced industry professional with a broad comprehensive knowledge of the construction industry.  The role requires an intelligent, well presented individual with first class communication skills and enthusiasm.

Skills/attributes required include:

  • Broad comprehensive knowledge of the construction industry
  • Listening, negotiating and influencing skills
  • Confident, personable and approachable with strong interpersonal skills
  • Innovative and self-motivated
  • Creative thinking, with impeccable writing skills
  • Computer literate
  • A passion and enthusiasm to improve the construction industry

The role is predominantly field based in and around central London and we are looking for someone who is flexible with their working arrangements.

The Company

Started in 1997, the Considerate Constructors Scheme operates a voluntary Code of Considerate Practice to which construction sites, companies and suppliers register.  The Scheme is a non-profit-making, independent organisation founded by the construction industry to improve its image, and plays a vital role in sharing best practice and raising standards within the industry.  As a major national initiative, the Scheme works with some of the largest construction companies and clients in the UK, registering approximately 8000 sites and conducting in excess of 12,000 individual site visits each year.

Construction companies that register with the Scheme are monitored against a Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.

The Scheme is concerned about any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole. The main areas of concern fall into three categories: the general public, the workforce and the environment.

Construction companies registered with the Scheme strive to minimise any negative impact that construction activity may have on neighbourhoods, while leaving behind long-lasting benefits that enhance communities.

If you are keen to be part of the Scheme’s ongoing success and are interested in this role, please send your CV with a covering letter. Closing date for applications is 10 August 2014.
