The structure of the team to manage will include an Area Supervisor who will assist with some management tasks and circa 80-90 operatives.

The role will involve responsibility for service delivery. Tasks will include regular meetings with clients, site audits etc some tasks will be shared with the supervisor such as ensuring the operatives have the required equipment and consumables, pay role etc. The role is new to this area so there will be some fettling with the duties.
