What you’ll be doing


The role will include the following responsibilities:

  • Drive delivery performance of the portfolio to cost and schedule.
  • Liaising and interfacing with key stakeholders involved with programme scope and delivery. 
  • Monitoring and maintaining safety and compliance against new and existing work scope.

Who you are


As a minimum, you will be educated to HNC qualification standard, or equivalent, in a technical or engineering field.  You should also be able to demonstrate a proactive approach to maintaining high operational standards and have a high level of self-motivation, safety management awareness and good written and oral communication skills.


Group Heads are appointed normally through interview; in addition, their aptitude for people management will normally be assessed during the selection process through use of behavioural assessment tools and techniques. However, an individual must possess the minimum technical competence and it is expected that through the appointment process candidates chosen to become Group Head will show an aptitude for people management.
