Document Controller 

Location: Hertford with regular site travel 

Talented people are the key to our success 

About us: 

Would you like to work for a progressive and ambitious company which is also one of the most successful within the UK construction and infrastructure industry?  

Morgan Sindall provides national construction and infrastructure services to private and public sector customers across a comprehensive range of markets. We aim to create great results for our customers, partners and ourselves. 


We have a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious and talented Document Controller within our Rail and Electrification business unit, to work across multiple projects. 

We are looking for Document Controllers who have a particular affinity for database management. The role itself will consist of providing required training to end users, so an interest or previous experience in a training environment would be advantageous (though not essential). The Document Controller will have excellent communication skills and be pro-active in troubleshooting queries. 

This role involves working closely with the Senior Information Manager to assist with the rollout of FieldView software. There is a requirement for regular travel to different sites and projects to ensure this piece of work is successful. 

We’re looking for:

  • Previous Document Control experience, ideally within the Rail environment
  • A broad knowledge in use of spreadsheets, databases, word processing and job specific software
  • Experience in setting up and using electronic document management systems 

We are looking for people who share our passion for the project at hand whilst working within an innovative and encouraging team.

About our Rail & Electrification Team 

Our customers benefit from the multi-disciplined service we offer in the high speed and underground rail sectors with expertise covering electrification and civil engineering as well as building capabilities including structures, lineside infrastructure, station enhancements and new build.

Our team consists of more than 275 staff - including safety critical staff certified up to engineering supervisor competence level. We work across the UK and Scotland with offices in London, Ware, Rugby, Stoke and Glasgow.

We are a leading provider of construction and isolation services to the rail industry, offering design and build 25kv overhead line and light rail electrification systems, complemented by our own fleet of specialist rail plant.


Our Electrification team provides services across the UK, with a base in Ware, Hertfordshire supported by a specialist electrification training centre and plant depot at Swynnerton, Staffordshire, and Scotland depot at Larkhall, South Lanarkshire.


Our expertise is focused not only on effective project delivery but also on minimising railway user and environmental disruption through innovative working practices.  These include ‘live launch’ bridge construction - where bridges are installed while railways beneath remain operational and ‘offline’ construction and modularisation techniques within stations.




Morgan Sindall is an equal opportunities employer and has been accredited with the Positive About Disabled People ‘Two Ticks’ accreditation.  We are also an Investors in People company.


Morgan Sindall is unable to employ anyone who does not have the legal right to live and work in the UK.

In the recruitment process all applicants are required to provide the necessary right to work information and documentation.


We can potentially consider certain types of flexible working in this role for the right candidate, subject to meeting business needs.
