Job description

Our water client is currently searching for a person who is an experienced project manager, but will also consider a project engineer, who wants to progress to a broader career in general Project Management. For the right candidate, this position has considerable potential for growth and advancement as the company grows.  

They are looking for a person who is an experienced project manager who may or may not be a qualified engineer, but ideally has experience of project management in construction, design and practical operating conditions of industrial water systems.

4. De-aeration  

5. Sterilisation (UV, SIP & CIP systems)  

6. Steam Generation  

7. Wastewater treatment systems  

8. Chemical bulk handling  

 

However, this is not essential as in-house training will be provided, some of which will most likely be in Germany.  

They will also give additional weight to any candidates having previous experience in the design and preparation of proposals for wastewater treatment plants, either chemical (inorganic) or biological. This type of knowledge would give the correct candidate rather more potential to grow with the company. It is particularly important to them that the selected candidate must have practical, proven ability and experience and they will therefore give serious consideration to those with field commissioning and operating experience.

7. Preparation of detailed designs as part of the post-contract team  

8. Site visits as appropriate / Collection of information for quotation preparation  

Post-Contract:  

1. Day to day contact & coordination of all project matters with client & all subcontractors & their staff.  

2. Specifying and purchasing of equipment, progressing its manufacture & delivery, ensuring its quality.  

3. Production of general contract documentation including Equipment Schedules, Data Sheets etc.  

4. Production of Health & Safety documentation including Risk Assessments, Method Statements, COSHH assessments, Safety Instructions etc.  

5. Production of Functional Design Specifications based on outline operating process concepts.  

6. Production of cable termination schedules for on-site installation  

7. Lead project team including supervision of CAD engineers for the production of general arrangement (layout) drawings and equipment design drawings.  

8. Providing periodic technical support for a small number of other clients with both water and wastewater treatment plants of various types.  

9. Assisting in the bringing to market, sales, support and servicing of an increasing number of water / wastewater treatment products, some of which will include cutting edge technologies.  

10. Regularly report on project to management and project stakeholders.  

 

Post contract site work includes:  

1. Organising and receiving equipment deliveries.  

2. Site inspections & measurement.  

3. Installation supervision.  

4. Day-to-day liaison with client & contractors.  

5. On-site pre-commissioning electrical checks.
