Role description

The Construction Oversight (CO) Member is a key member of the Nuclear field construction management team who is dedicated to ensuring project success in achieving project performance objectives plus on-schedule and on-budget major milestone accomplishment. Construction Oversight members interact frequently and directly with construction contractors at the Area Manager / General Superintendent / Superintendent levels to help those construction leaders succeed. Construction Oversight also interacts directly with the system completions team to help ensure success in turning systems over to the site testing team. The CO members have a high level of initiative and are typically assigned to small teams that support site and nuclear construction include back (night) shift.

The work environment is an active heavy construction site and will include both office and field settings.  Work will require exposure to heat/cold/rain.
