Permit Inspector 

Wessex Water 

Hinkley Point C 




As Permit Inspector, you'll be part of the team responsible for controlling and coordinating all utilities and assets works on site, making sure that safe working practices are adhered to. Your role focuses on issuing and monitoring work control documentation for a wide range of site activities including excavations, confined spaces, hot works, working at height, loading, and lifting operations. You'll also coordinate work interfaces between teams and monitor work delivery to ensure that permit controls are being implemented correctly. Additionally, you will review contractor risk assessments and method statements against current health and safety guidance and NNB procedures.



Previous experience in civil engineering or in the construction, maintenance and operation of services and utilities on site is vital.
You'll also need to have worked at a supervisory level or as an authorised person for Working at Height, Confined Spaces, Hot Works, and Lifting Operations. A large part of your role will be to support and uphold a strong safety culture, so you'll need a working knowledge of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Workplace (Health and Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, RIDDOR regulations 1995, CDM Regulations 2015 and the CDM approved code of Practice.
We'll need you to achieve HSE Spec Supervisor test minimum (CSCS card) and SSSTS qualification too.



This is a busy role, dealing with a wide range of site and office staff from our own COMA team and contractors to the NNB Site Ops team and their contractors. You need to be confident to build good working relationships with all of these groups and maintain a professional approach even when you are working under pressure and balancing the demands of different stakeholders. As well as your people skills, you'll have to be organised, adaptable and have good computer skills. You'll be using the full Microsoft Office suite and other software packages. You'll be based in our offices on site but will also be working outside in all weather conditions. You may have to work on other local sites on occasion, so you will need a full driving licence. This role works to a 40hr Mon-Fri. Due to the progressive nature of works on site the role may be subject to change regarding shift pattern and you may be required to take part in routine standby cover.









For this role you must have evidence of right to work in the UK. As a project, we do not discriminate on the grounds of age, gender, race, colour, religion, disability or sexual orientation, and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.
