For our IWSP-2 Construction Programme in Egypt, we are looking for an International Lead Construction Supervisor (m/f/d) with proven experience in large-scale water/wastewater projects worldwide financed by IFIs, especially KfW.

The Lead Construction Supervisor will need to lead the supervision team covering the 16-20 projects in the two governorates and will effectively become the TL. Project management skills are essential, understanding of Arabic and experience in Egypt will be an advantage. Expected start of the mission will probably be in the second quarter of 2024 (difficult to be precise because it depends on the progress in the tendering & award of construction contracts).

The Lead Construction Supervisor would be based in Minya (3.5-hour drive from Cairo) with a core team, with dedicated site supervision teams for each project. The Lead Construction Supervisor will cover Assiut Governorate as well and there will be some travel to Cairo required.

  • Computer skills (MS Office software, accounting applications);
  • Good interpersonal and communication skills;
  • Fluent in English, knowledge of Arabic would be an advantage.
