About Costain and your project.

An opportunity has arisen for a Site Coordinator / Supervisor on our Costain United Utilities Managed Service Provider (MSP) Service Desk. The role will cover the region as shown below:

As a Site Coordinator/Supervisor for the MSP Service Desk, you will report into the Technical & SHE Support Team Lead as part of the Service Desk Technical & SHE Assurance Team.

You will be responsible for ensuring all MSP Service Desk projects are delivered in accordance with United Utilities and the MSP's safety, health, and environmental procedures, and that lifting operations and temporary works are adequately supervised on site. This will include reviewing CDM documentation and safe systems of works, supervision and assurance of the supply chain, and management and coordination of multiple contractors on site. You will be supported by the MSP SHE Assurance Team.

United Utilities is a key customer with the Costain Water sector customer with a new Managed Service Provider (MSP) framework contract secured and mobilised by Costain in mid 2019 for an initial period of five years with an option to extend to ten years. Under the contract Costain will provide overall management and delivery of United Utilities' larger-scale water and waste water asset maintenance activities across the entirety of its network, including 96 water treatment and 575 wastewater treatment sites, which serves over six million people in the North West of England.

This contract marks the first time United Utilities has outsourced its maintenance activity as it seeks to drive material efficiency and operational improvements in line with customer expectations and regulatory requirements. Over the duration of the framework the strategic objective is for Costain to leverage the broad suite of Leading Edge capabilities to help United Utilities move from a reactive 'fix-on-fail' approach to a proactive maintenance programme thereby improving the resilience of its assets and environmental outcomes whilst ensuring continuity of supply and consequently lowering costs for its customers.

The MSP contract involves the management and provision of 24x7 maintenance support across UU and thus is an extremely high profile service operating at the heart of the client's business.

The role is predominantly based at the UU head office in Lingley Mere, Warrington - with travel to operational sites across the region on a periodic basis.

What will I be doing?

This role is essential to the successful delivery and assurance of technical and safety, health, and environmental (SHE) procedures across the MSP's core workstream. You will be part of a small team, integrated within the MSP Service Desk Team, providing technical and SHE support to MSP Service Desk projects as required. This team is key to ensuring Costain delivers all works safely through our supply chain and in accordance with procedures and legal obligations. The core workstream includes planned and reactive maintenance projects and is a fast-paced delivery environment with significant customer interface. This role is vital to ensure efficient planning and delivery of the customer's requirements and expectations.

Key Responsibilities:
  • Ensuring all MSP Service Desk projects are suitably triaged for required SHE and technical support, and adequate oversight is provided by the Service Desk Technical & SHE Support Team.
  • Ensuring all projects comply fully with United Utilities and MSP procedures.
  • Provide leadership to create a safety culture to ensure zero LTI and RIDDOR incidents.
