A role as a Senior Planning Engineer is a great first step onto the management ladder for a role in the construction sector.
Senior Planning Engineers or ‘Senior Planners’ are sought after by main contractors to establish procedures and systems for scheduling, monitoring project progress, and planning resources. Likewise, construction consultants utilise Senior Planning Engineers’ experience to scrutinise the contractor’s schedule and analyse where delays may occur.
Senior Planning Engineers are involved on projects across various sectors in the construction industry; including, but not limited to, Civil & Building Engineering, Property Development and MEP works.
Typically, a Senior Planning Engineer will be based on-site and will have up to 10 years experience. The best engineers will use this experience to mentor and develop more junior members in their planning team; demonstrating to senior management that they have the capability to progress into a Planning Manager or similar position.
There is significant demand for high calibre Senior Planning Engineers who can act as a bridge between planning management and the rest of the planning team. We have vacancies for projects across MENA, Hong Kong and several locations around Asia, as well as the UK.
Our experienced consultants at Maxim Recruitment have been finding jobs for Senior Planning professionals in the Middle East and globally since 2003 and are always looking for meticulous professionals to present to our clients.
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.
