Plant Supervisor for Concrete / * concrete / operations

Job Description

Hanson is one of the UK's largest suppliers of construction materials. Our products include aggregates, asphalt, ready-mixed concrete, and cement. We are part of the HeidelbergCement Group, which employs 53,000 people across five continents and is the global leader in aggregates and has leading positions in cement, concrete and heavy building products.

A vacancy has arisen for a Plant Supervisor to work at our Taunton Concrete Plant.

Reporting to the District Operations Manager the successful candidate will be responsible for the safe and efficient operation of the site and will be an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual, who is able to work on his/her own initiative whilst under pressure in a very busy working environment.

Your duties will include the use of computer based and manual systems for batching and despatch of concrete, performing and controlling routine maintenance, maintaining excellent housekeeping standards, supervising contractors and hauliers to ensure this site is operated in accordance with the all Health, Safety & Environmental Legislation and within quality scheme criteria.

Previous experience in the concrete industry and the operation of mobile plant is not essential, as full training will be given. A good telephone manner, excellent communication skills and a ‘can-do' attitude are essential.

Applicants should be reliable, have an organised but flexible approach and be adaptable enough to be able to respond to the changing circumstances of our day to day business, with the aim to exceed our customer's expectations.
