As permit inspector, you'll be part of the team responsible for controlling and co-ordinating all utilities and assets works on site, making sure that safe working practices are adhered to. Your role focuses on issuing and monitoring work control documentation for a wide range of site activities, including excavations, confined spaces, hot works, working at height, loading and lifting operations. You'll also co-ordinate work interfaces between teams and monitor work delivery to ensure that permit controls are being implemented correctly. You will also review contractor risk assessments and method statements against current health and safety guidance and NNB procedures.

Previous experience in civil engineering or in the construction, maintenance and operation of services and utilities on site is vital. You'll also need to have worked at a supervisory level or as an authorised person (AP) for working at height, confined spaces, hot works and lifting operations. A large part of your role will be to support and uphold a strong safety culture, so you'll need a working knowledge of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, RIDDOR regulations 1995, CDM Regulations 2007 and CDM Approved Code of Practice. We'll need you to have a valid CSCS card and SSSTS qualification as well.

This is a busy role, which will involve you dealing with a wide range of site and office staff from our own COMA team and contractors to the NNB site operations team and their contractors, in addition to customers and members of the public. You need to be confident to build good working relationships with all of these groups and to maintain a professional approach even when you are working under pressure and balancing the demands of different stakeholders. As well as your people skills, you'll have to be organised, adaptable and have good computer skills. You'll be using the full MS Office suite and other software packages and ideally, you'll have used CAD or True View too. You'll be based in our offices on site but will also be working outside in all weather conditions. You may have to work on other local sites on occasion, so you will need a full driving licence. This role works to a shift pattern and you'll be required to take part in routine standby cover.

In return, we offer:

- Defined contribution pension scheme.
- 24 days' holiday rising to 28 with length of service, and you can buy or sell leave after one year's service.
- Life insurance.
- Cycle2Work scheme.
- Discounts and cashback scheme from more than 1,200 high street and online suppliers.

Please remember you must be able to prove your eligibility to work in the UK and provide evidence of qualifications gained. All offers of employment will be subject pre-employment checks including Basic Disclosure Criminal Records and referencing and may include drug and alcohol testing.
