A site manager will supervise the day to day building work and safety in a development. They must organise a team of employees and create and develop a structured work plan.

Health and safety is a crucial factor as construction sites can be very dangerous. Therefore a tight ship must be run by the site manager to ensure a safe environment for all the workers.

Projects often have very tight schedules; a site manager must work to deadlines and make sure that all members of staff work to their full potential. Having built up experience in the industry, site managers should be well equipped to deal with all aspects of the construction process. Site managers will have to liaise with all departments involved in the project, including architects, engineers, planners and surveyors.

Typically, a site manager will be employed by a construction company, contractor or civil engineering firm. They can also be employed by local authorities to oversee the refurbishment of council owned properties.
