As a site manager within TMT, you’ll be responsible for ensuring that projects to which you are allocated are completed safely, within an agreed timeframe and to the allocated budget. Managing the practical side of every stage of the build programme, you’ll work closely with architects, surveyors and other building professionals to ensure the successful planning and delivery of the project.
In ensuring the project is delivered successfully, the site manager will supervise and direct a range of operations within the site including ensuring that all tradespeople and contractors are working together to an agreed plan and that progress is being made. You may oversee a whole site, or a big part of a large-scale complex project or individual packages of work depending on the project’s needs.

Identify resource needs and manage staff required to fulfil the project objectives
Manage the construction site on a day-to-day basis, including supervising the labour force, monitoring subcontractors, checking materials, inspecting work and overseeing quality control to ensure build quality
Ensure the project is delivered on time and on budget by monitoring programme performance, identifying potential for delays and opportunities for programme improvement
Check design documents with architects, surveyors and engineers to identify potential conflicts, identify phasing and construction methodology requirements and identify any areas of significant health & safety risk created by the design needing to be managed in the construction phase
Promote and maintain exemplar health and safety standards by leading from example, use of Stop Work Authority, control and monitoring of the Construction Phase Plan, review of RAMS and the conducting of site inspections to ensure TMT Safety Rules for Contractors are being followed
Where required to do so, maintain regular communication and attend meetings with clients and their representatives to inform them of progress on the project, i.e. stakeholder management

Daily site working hours will generally be as required by the construction programme and agreements with the Client and planning authorities. It is not expected that Site Managers will work in excess of 40hrs per week however on occasion, overtime, out of hours (Night) and weekend working may be necessary
Site Managers are expected to be present on their sites at all times that works are being undertaken and or construction workers are present. In circumstances where a site manager is required to be away from site (for a pre-approved meeting) they must book off site through the office and a deputy nominated.
