About the Role

The Delivery Coordinator, sitting within the Operational Support section of the business, is responsible for ensuring that all jobs scheduled in by the planning team are attended by operatives on the correct day. The Delivery Coordinator should take ownership of the delivery of each job they are assigned to their team and ensure that any dependencies are completed prior to attendance. The main objective of this role is to give the Operations Teams the best possible chance of completing their tasks on the day, and taking actions to resolve issues or refer back to planning if required. The Delivery Administrator will work closely with both DLO (Direct Labour Operatives) and Sub Contractors to guarantee the delivery of all jobs. Once jobs are signed off as complete, they will arrange for post-job site inspections by APDMs to ensure quality standards are being adhered to.

  • Liaise with the Delivery Team on the day of jobs to facilitate completion
  • Make regular check-in calls with on-site teams to ensure that the job information is up to date and any early warnings are recorded.
  • Work to resolve on-day issues with the delivery teams and where required defer back to the client for DFE authorisation, or re-issue of work pack.
  • Make time critical decisions to minimise delivery fallout due to on-day/short notice limitations or issues which arise
  • Update internal and Client Systems to ensure that the latest job information is visible to clients and internal staff
  • Attend regular conference calls and meetings with internal and external stakeholders to improve processes, minimise issues, and work collaboratively to increase delivery
