Job Description for Construction Scheduler

A construction scheduler plays a vital role in a construction project, helping to manage both time and resources to ensure work is completed on time. The job of a scheduler is to create timetables for the entire project, which includes determining the timing of tasks and when specific materials will be needed. Construction work is often cyclical, and delays are normal, so a scheduler must make sure projects are fully staffed when appropriate and that workers are able to access tools and building materials. If an unanticipated delay arises, the scheduler must readjust timetables as much as possible to avoid wasting further time and money; this may be challenging, especially given the external pressures from clients, government restrictions, and the project manager.
