We are seeking an individual with proven experience in a comparable leadership role and with a track record in delivering large-scale capital programmes. The role is responsible for a diverse multidisciplinary team of internal team members and a broad spectrum of external delivery partners, therefore exceptional leadership skills are crucial to be a success in the role.
