One thing which we hear a lot of when speaking to our team is how much they love the variation of their work with Land & Water. Whether it’s a project up north utilising our marine expertise or vegetation works being carried out down south, no day is ever the same.
As sympathetic guardians of our planet we are passionate about caring for our coastline and the UK’s network of waterways which is why we have a nationwide presence, with hubs across the country. This makes all the difference to our team as they are able to experience a wide range of locations and civil engineering works to broaden their skill-sets.
Our Site Manager Tony, or ‘award-winning Tony’ as we like to call him, loves the diversity of our projects. At the moment he is currently working on the River Thames removing shoals at various locations between Oxford and Reading, however shortly he will be refurbishing a lock at Penton Hook and is looking forward to delivering successful, quality works for the client.
As a Site Manager, Tony has a range of different responsibilities from ensuring project teams meet client expectations to prioritising health and safety on site and getting involved with budgeting and procuring materials. Tony has even won an Excellent Behaviours Award with the Environment Agency for his personal commitment and can-do attitude that ensured the successful delivery of a project, one month ahead of schedule. Discussing his role with us, Tony said “I love the challenges that come from the work and get a great sense of achievement from solving a problem and then implementing this with my team.”
Recognising our team and also providing high quality works is something that we are passionate about here at Land & Water and the award was incredibly well deserved by Tony.
Like a lot of our team, Tony has been with us for over 10 years having worked his way up from a Labourer to where he is today. Tony said, “Over the years I have worked for some great managers and in some amazing teams that have helped develop my career to what it is today, starting as a Labourer then working as a Charge Hand, Foreman and on to a Site Manager’s roll.“ Land & Water is committed to seeing its employees grow and develop and we’ve been proud to support Tony throughout his career. We want to create a working environment where people can thrive.
We have a range of Site Manager positions available across different locations and we’d love to have passionate and dedicated new members join our team as part of our sustained and exciting business growth.https://www.land-water.co.uk/careers/
