You’ll be leading your crew doing maintenance works on roading, pavements and drainage. This role comes with a variety of projects, so no two days will be the same. Reporting to the Supervisor, you’ll be expected to be involved in planning, organising, directing and controlling activities and operations of crews to ensure that work is completed to the satisfaction of the contract specifications and all targets (productivity, quality and safety) are met.

The Foreperson will be expected to work ‘hands on’ at all times to provide training and development for any new staff.
