Construction site supervisors lead teams in completing construction projects. They are direct overseers who know what needs to be done and find ways to make it happen. Using the blueprints and other instructions given to them by managers and clients, construction site supervisors watch over the labor being performed to ensure the final product meets specifications in terms of design, safety, and budget.
Construction site supervisors spend much of their time at project sites. They also might have an office in which they hold meetings or perform administrative tasks. Demand for construction site supervisors and other jobs categorized by the Bureau of Labor Statistics as first-line supervisors of construction trades and extraction workers is expected to increase 10 percent through 2024, with more than 10,000 job openings each year resulting from new jobs being created and existing jobs becoming available.
