You will coordinate and interface heavily with Construction, Design and Document Control staff as well as other section management leaders in order to apply a consistent approach across the project.

For this contract position, your key responsibilities and duties will include:

* Record Quality Checklists
* Communicate any defects or unfinished works back to the construction teams
* Gain the Designer's written acceptance of the works
* Collect as-built information during the physical inspections of works and communicate this to the Designer to create as-built records and assist with proposing solutions to non-conformances (defects) to allow the works to be accepted as compliant.

If you believe that you are suitable for this position, you will also need to demonstrate that you possess the following requirements:

* Relevant industry qualification
* Appropriate CSCS card
* Supervisory skills
* Have extensive major highways construction experience and prior experience of project handover would be highly advantageous
