Design Coordinator - Sundridge, near Sevenoaks

Building the present, creating the future

Our role of Design Coordinator on the Southern Multi-Discipline Framework requires the management of multiple projects in parallel. You will coordinate the design documentation and be responsible for tracking and resolving RFI's, maintaining the Change Management Register, and generally keeping the design process on track. This is a Framework role of which we are at the start (5-8 years).

Your key activities will include:

  • Coordinate with the designer and project team, to ensure appropriate engineering solutions and construction methodologies that meet employer requirements.
  • Monitor design delivery progress against agreed programmes.
  • Contribute to the identification of design change and coordinate assessments of time and cost effects.
  • Review of the emerging designs, checking for compliance and compatibility with project requirements.
  • Manage design to inform and deliver the project BIM requirements.
  • Record and distribute the outputs of design meetings.
  • Maintain design registers for queries, actions and change.

The location of work will be partially from our Sundridge office (near Sevenoaks) and partially from our Network Rail shared offices near London Waterloo East (10 minutes' walk). The role requires site visits, meetings at Network Rail offices and designer offices. Generally you won't spend all week sitting at the same desk, but will have to be flexible in location to interface with the design and site teams.

The offices at Sundridge are open-plan, modern and set up to encourage team working. Easily accessed by car, however there will be a minibus to provide transfers to Sevenoaks station which is the nearest Network Rail station, 5 minutes' drive away.

Job Requirements
The Rail business unit is split into disciplines of Earthworks, Buildings (Stations and Footbridges) and Structures. We are looking for design management staff for Buildings and Structures, but would also be interested in applications from those with previous Earthworks experience. An experienced section engineer or sub agent looking for a career change could work well in this role.

You will need to be methodical, enjoy process and be a strong communicator.

Previous Network Rail project experience is certainly an advantage, as would be prior experience of the design office.

What do we offer?
In addition to a competitive salary and benefits package, we provide continuing development opportunities within a creative and considerate work environment.

The division is very open to flexible or part time working and there are significant opportunities to develop. The role could progress to that of CEM (Contractors Engineering Manager), with the ability to manage large multi-disciplinary projects, taking parallel responsibility for progressing the design and compliance with Network Rail's standards and requirements.

BAM Nuttall is committed to equality of opportunity in all its employment practices, and to developing policies that support work-life balance.
