  • Ensuring the disciplined management of projects

and modifications through the Opportunity Assessment, Identification,

Selection, Definition, Execution and Operation phases and tollgates;

  • Leading and managing others, including Project

Managers, junior Engineers, Supervisors and Consultants;

demonstrating a strong customer focus, to ensure requirements are met;

the corporate projects team for projects greater than US$10 million to
