A role as a Planning Engineer can offer an excellent opportunity to move up the career ladder into management roles across the construction sector.
Planning Engineers or ‘Planners’ are generally utilized by main contractors to establish systems and procedures for scheduling, monitoring project progress, and planning resources. Similarly, construction consultants employ Planning Engineers to review the contractor’s schedule and analyse where potential delays could occur.
There is a broad scope of sectors where Planning Engineers can operate; including but not limited to Civil & Building Engineering, Property Development and MEP works.
Beginning as a ‘Junior Planner’ or ‘Trainee Planning Engineer’, there is the opportunity to progress into a site management role, overseeing the planning team on a specific project, or beyond this to a corporate position where you will have responsibility for all planning operations of the company across all projects.
Quality planning professionals are seen as a real asset to a company and are in great demand. We have jobs available to work on projects in Dubai and across the Middle East, Hong Kong and several locations around Asia, as well as London and the South of the UK.

About Hong Kong & Asia
Asia is a great and diverse region in which to work. The construction industry varies widely between countries and has many different historical influences still affecting the way each operates.
With a mix of international and local construction industry practices within each country, the relative cost and scarcity of land creates the backdrop of what kinds of building and civil engineering construction projects are built to what standard and budget.
In Hong Kong the construction of major school, hospital and residential developments are ongoing alongside a massive MTR railway construction programme and a number of major road and bridge projects.
Singapore has a thriving rail, civil engineering and building sector, Macau has a focus on gaming and hospitality while other countries in Asia have their own dynamics.
Civil Engineers, Project Managers and Quantity Surveyors with either Cantonese or Mandarin language skills or high value mega project experience are always in demand for construction jobs in Asia.
