About The Position

We have worked with this client at Mech Electrics for over a decade. We have an excellent relationship with them and often have vacancies to work on exclusively. 
This role, an M&E Planner, is just one of those roles. It's for a major project, initially giving you 3 years' security and the chance to develop your planning skills and become the planning lead on the project. 
We are looking for someone who has planning experience in the built environment. Ideally you will have M&E experience, although people with experience in construction and industrial / process facilities may also apply. 
You will use Asta Power project, work with the team to develop a Pre-Construction strategy, be ever present during the construction phase and work towards commissioning programmes with the senior project leads.
The company is the Principal Contractor, they will manage their own design, construction, BMS systems and work with a limited, but well known to them supply chain. 
You will work with the team to create a progress measurement system and continually monitor the schedule and update continually. 
There won't be another project for you to be involved with for the duration. The company realise there needs to be no distraction and want the Planner to have full access to the complete build and be an instrumental part of the project team. You can be based on site 100% of the time, or work between site and office. The company are OK to negotiate this. 
Other roles will be to coordinate sub-contractors’ programmes and work with the construction engineers, feeding in the services, equipment etc into the contractor programme. 

The Person

You must have a built environment background. There is an opportunity for someone to be considered from construction, or process, as mentioned, but in an ideal world, the client wants to see someone who has managed mechanical and electrical services, but you can come from an industrial MEP background, or an EC&I environment too.
If you are an engineer, who spends a lot of time planning in your present role, who would entertain the position for a full time job, you too are invited to apply. 


  • Planning Experience
  • Major Project Experience ideal.
  • Team Player
  • Able to work with the different departments and collaborate 
  • Someone who will commit to being with the team for the entire project duration. 

The Reward

An excellent salary, company car or allowance, pension and healthcare. 
The company is prepared to pay a decent salary for the position, however, it's what most companies will pay, so what's the difference here? there's a unique chance to work on a massive scheme, with a superb design and construction team, who have worked on projects as a collective for years. Their ability to go to work is excellent, there is massive job security and eventual prospect and promotion with the company. As a company, they have continued to sustain growth over the past 10 years, they work with good margins on their projects and are an excellent company to work for.
