Job Description

Sitec a Belcan Company has a requirement for a Temporary Works Designated Individual (DI) for our client within Devonport Dockyard Plymouth. This is a contract role with an estimated duration of 6 months.

Devonport Royal Dockyard has been supporting the Royal Navy since the 16th Century. With the size and shape of the modern Royal Navy changing, and with new ships and submarines entering service, the site is involved in a programme of significant infrastructure upgrades. These projects range from docks to berths to logistics hubs, which will provide a dockyard that is fit for the future.


BS 5975 gives recommendations for temporary structures on building sites, with practical guidelines on design, specification, construction and the use and dismantling of falsework.

The overall responsibility for the control of Temporary Works within any contracting organisation will lie with the 'Designated Individual (DI)'. This is set out in Clause of BS 5975:2008.

The Designated Individual has, unless formally passed on, overall accountability. The DI is a role defined in BS5975:2008 as the individual within the contracting organisation who is responsible for establishing and implementing a procedure for controlling temporary works.

The procedure should cover the management of the design process, and include measures for ensuring the design function and the roles of the Temporary Works Co-ordinator and Temporary Works Supervisor are carried out by competent individuals.

The successful candidate will have experience of Civil Engineering in the capacity of a Temporary Works Designated Individual.

You will also need a background that will allow UK Security Clearance to be obtained.
