Apprenticeship summary

What is a Document Controller?

A Document controller is a niche job within the power industry and could lead to other specialisms within project support / project admin.

What will you be involved in as a Document Controller?

On projects we have hundreds of drawings being issued and each one could be revised so it is a "very important" part of the whole project delivery process that we offer the document control service. Some clients also have their own web based portals that are used for this.

Your role and responsibilities will include:

You must be competent with the use of MS Office products like word and excel and have very good attention to detail.
