Site Supervision: A Career Change That Pays Off

2 January 2024

Many people set resolutions for the New Year. They want to be more active, eat better, organise themselves, or pursue smaller goals. But some people have bigger plans. They want to change their careers, follow their passions, or improve themselves by getting qualifications and earning more money.


Do you need a new challenge in your construction career? Do you want more responsibility and money? Then you should think about becoming a site supervisor in 2024.


Site supervisors manage staff and subcontractors on building sites. They make sure the work is safe, efficient and meets the specifications. They talk to clients, architects, engineers and others to coordinate the project and fix any problems.


The construction industry needs site supervisors. They are important for successful projects. The National Careers Service says site supervisors in the UK earn £25,000 to £45,000 a year, depending on their experience and qualifications.


Site supervisors also get many benefits, such as:

• Working on different projects, from new builds to renovations, from residential to commercial

• Learning leadership, communication and problem-solving skills

• Impacting the quality and outcome of the work

• Joining a dynamic and collaborative team

• Advancing their career and professional development

How to become a site supervisor


If you are interested in becoming a site supervisor, you will need to have some relevant experience and qualifications in the construction sector. You will also need to demonstrate your knowledge and skills in health and safety, risk assessment, site induction, bad practice intervention and more.


One of the easiest and most convenient ways to get qualified as a site supervisor is to take the Safe2Site Supervision Training (S2SST) course offered by COSAC. This is the only CITB approved online alternative to the SSSTS (Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme) course, which is widely recognised and respected in the industry.


The S2SST course is 100% online and flexible, meaning that you can complete it at your own pace and time, without having to book in advance or attend any classes.
