Site engineers perform a technical, organisational and supervisory role on construction projects, including civil, road, rail and other infrastructure projects.
They are responsible for marking out the site, applying designs and plans and liaising with sub contractors.
Site engineers work as part of the site management team, sharing responsibility for site security, health and safety, and the organisation and supervision of material and human resources. Projects may vary from small scale to multi-million pound ventures.
Most site engineers work for contractors, but some consultancies also recruit their own resident site engineers. Clients include central and local government, developers and multinational corporations.
