  • Embrace your role as a cost planning maestro, orchestrating the harmonious convergence of inputs from our planning team.
  • Empower your decision-making through meticulous analysis and interpretation of project progress cost reports.
  • Elevate communication with stakeholders to an art form, ensuring a symphony of coordination and alignment.
  • Illuminate performance against KPIs through regular reporting on programme cost, showcasing your strategic mastery.

Essential Experience:

  • With a minimum of 5 years, your diverse PMO and Programme Management cost planning experience shines as a testament to your expertise.
  • Proficiency in wielding cost planning tools, SharePoint (or similar), Microsoft Office, CAFM, and SAP.
  • A proven track record in navigating complex operational environments, mastering a diverse range of marine, building, civil, and system assets.
