This is a full-time permanent employed position working onsite at our client’s site. 

As a successful candidate, you will be managing multiple projects on what is primarily a green field site. The construction and completion of these projects are of the utmost importance and each part of the project tie together the overall site. 

For all of these projects, planning permission for the larger parts of the construction work will be required, so our client requires a Project Manager with experience working with planning departments and obtaining planning permission with local councils as well as an ability to work with the likes of Scottish Natural Heritage and other similar local bodies. 

AutoCAD is essential, as you will be responsible for working with our client and drafting plans for submission to the relevant officials. 

You will be based onsite as you will have to work with the local construction teams, overseeing the plans being carried out, so a hands-on approach and good team working skills are also required. 

This residential project is the creation of a new large, upscale residence for our client’s use, so experience in similar types of undertaking is required. 

This is a list of some of the ongoing requirements:

  • Local installation onsite of portacabins

Planning for the installation of the portacabins

  • A new sewage treatment plant

Installation of services for onsite employees (all of the above plus WC/Shower facilities)

Landscaping and design work onsite

  • GateHouse planning, planning permission, installation and creation including new gates and an access road
  • Creation of new additional onsite parking
  • Staff Accommodation creation (multiple new houses)
  • Construction and planning of new Facilities Management centre onsite
  • Phase 3 connection for onsite mains power
  • Backup power (generators)

  • Overseeing essential works and ongoing preventative maintenance on original house structures (circa 120 years old)

These are just some of the current and ongoing projects, as this is part of a long-term plan on behalf of our clients. 

This is a greenfield site where you will be responsible for working with multiple government agencies, so any experience in doing this would be of additional benefit. 

Key to this role is bringing all of this together in a cohesive strategy and putting a proper project plan, connecting all of these disparate parts together into a whole. 

This is a challenging and demanding role but will offer much to the correct candidate, including an amazing outlook in this rugged part of Scotland. 

Our client is prepared to help with reasonable relocation costs; therefore, we invite candidates throughout the UK to apply. 

On offer is a very competitive salary, at £60-£80,000 pa, depending on your skills and experience.

Amazing Facts About Your Brain

Posted on

A mind is a terrible thing to waste, so are these amazing facts about your brain

  1. The brain itself cannot feel pain

even though the brain contains layers of coverings and blood vessels that contain pain receptors, the brain itself has zero. When a person has a headache, for example, it’s often thought of as pain stemming from the brain, but this is actually not the case. The muscles and skin surrounding the brain, however, can feel pain.

  1. Your brain is greedy

Your brain might account for only about 3 per cent of your body weight, but it receives about 30 per cent of the blood being pumped by your heart. This shows how much attention and support it requires in comparison to the other seemingly important areas of your body. “The brain is like a spoiled and demanding child, yet it is extremely smart and efficient,”

  1. Human brains have enough memory to store all of the internets.

Human brains can compute about 10^18 operations per second. How fast is that? About a billion billion calculations every second, according to scientific discoveries and innovations site Foglets. While computers use binary coding (i.e., alternating ones and zeros) to make sense of the world, human brains use 26 types of codes.

  1. Brain Scans Can “Light Up” When A Person Is In Love

Some may think that being “in love” is only an idea or merely a term people use, but brain scans reveal otherwise. “For people who are romantically in love, functional MRI brain scans can show activity where dopamine, the ‘feel-good’ neurotransmitter, is present,” says Dr McQuiston. “Other areas in the brain associated with pleasure and reward can also show greater activity for people who have fallen in love.”

  1. Reading Allows Your Brain To Directly Download Information

When you learned to read, your brain had to change and restructure itself so your visual and language systems could transfer information from the page into your working memory.

  1. Multi-tasking is an illusion

When we think we’re multitasking, our brains are actually switching back and forth between tasks, not performing them at the same time. Rather than increasing efficiency, this practice generally results in tasks taking more time and having more errors.

  1. Your brain never sleeps

While you’re asleep, your brain is busy performing maintenance. In addition to controlling essential body functions like breathing, the brain cleans up waste, preserves information and makes sure your body stays put, all while you’re snoring.
