Plant Support Services So-ordinators are responsible for coordinating the movements of a team of engineers to undertake service visits on site at plant. A good geographical understanding along with excellent communication skills (both written and verbal) are useful to help manage your team.
Plant Support Services So-ordinators require excellent organisational skills and a capability to plan routes both in the UK and internationally. A strong ability to multitask means that you efficiently, and cost effectively, organise your service team to allow for swift mobilisation as necessary.
Typically, Plant Support Services So-ordinators work around 40 hours a week, usually between 9am and 6pm. However, there may be substantial travel involved, including overseas work, which would affect working hours.
Salaries typically range depending on location and level of responsibility.
There are no formal qualifications required for becoming a plant services co-ordinator; however, you may want to complete GCSEs in Mathematics and English or their equivalents, such as the Welsh Baccalaureate or Scottish Nationals.
Traffic Office NVQ L3 or SVQ L3 could make you a more desirable candidate, as would a Site Supervisors' Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) or equivalent leadership training, along with previous experience in a supervisory role.
A Basic First Aid Certificate and Full UK Driving License (Clean) are often required, given the supervisory nature of the role.
