Our largest global clients is currently searching for a Site Civil Supervisor for a chemical project in Yemen. They are urgently looking to fill this vacancy as their previous Site Civil Supervisor has had to return home and leave the project for unforeseen family problems. My client needs an immediate replacement as they have already received their order of steel and need to get the work flowing again. At present the Construction Manager is trying to cover the Civil works too but is obviously being stretched too much.

There are two large blocks being constructed for this project.

The first block is a huge complex built to transport zinc from the local mine to the chemical plant. There are all types of equipment involved including conveyor systems, grinding units and truck transportation facilities- this will be particularly challenging as the Zinc mine is 2000meters above sea level. The minerals are transported over 200meters to the chemical plant

The second block is a hydrometallurgical plant, whereby they will be attacking the chemicals mined locally. Civil info: this is built on concrete slab (70m x 200m). There are over 600 equipments (pumps, vessels, filter ect).

Civil info:
- Locally there will be a water supplied power generator. Some civil works are on-going from this power station including projects such as reinforcing roads (previous roads were fit for 4x4’s not site Trucks).
- Some technical challenges with the uneven terrain. Some work will be being constructed and erected on different levels so will need someone who can deal with these constraints and view it as a challenge.
- All engineering work has been done in a professionally respected European Engineering office located in Belgium. You will liaise with the Belgian office regularly.
- Factors to consider would be some civil installation work is being executed at different terrains in order to be more resistant again seismic activities.

- Strong experience in managing Civil Site teams.
- Experience working in multi-cultured environment
- Site Management/Supervisor experience is essential
- Managed Civil Site teams on projects circa 100Million Euros.
- Experience in the Chemical or Petrochemical industry preferred.

Languages: English is essential. Any other languages such as Arabic, Turkish, Egyptian will be a bonus for communicating with site personnel. Also, French would be a bonus when dealing with Home office engineers – however, English is the spoken language on the project.
