About the role

Balfour Beatty is recruiting for an Engineering Planner to join our Power Transmission & Distribution business based in Derby. This office is responsible for distribution projects and this particular role will focus on the engineering schedule to support a number of major cabling and overhead line (OHL) projects.

This is an office-based role that includes pre-construction planning as well as the delivery of live projects. You will work a number of projects simultaneously and there will be a requirement to visit site. Due to the remote location of some projects you will need a full driving licence.

What you'll be doing

As a Planning Engineer, your main responsibilities are as follows:

* Plan, structure and lead the planning of the project programme of works.
* Manage the interface between the programme and the operational staff through structured meetings, programme and progress reporting.
* Highlight both the dependencies and the interfaces between stakeholders.
* Identify programme risks and propose mitigation strategies.
* Identify programme opportunities and propose capture strategies.
* Maintain a fully logically linked Primavera P6 project programme
* Ensure the schedule is resourced (plant and personnel) and update to reflect modifications in execution strategy. This will require close work with the project delivery team to regularly maintain the status of the programme.
* Provide regular updates to the programme to allow project staff to plan their works.
* Update and report progress of the project at regular intervals to the Regional Planning Manager and Project Manager.
* Reporting on key resources including staff; operatives, key plant and equipment, supply chain and other project milestones to allow the project to proceed in accordance with the baseline.
* Provide the appropriate programming, management and interfaces between business functions and the delivery team to ensure that contractual milestones in all sections of the project delivery programme are understood, monitored and adhered to in a controlled and appropriately timely manner. This activity will require close and professional liaison with the clients planning team on a regular basis.
* Assist in the evaluation of early warnings and preparation of compensation events and impact assessments.
* Ensuring that the established planning and scheduling methodology as per the latest issued Planning Procedure is followed.
* Assist with the preparation of the monthly programme report and dashboards and associated supporting information
