This role will require a high level of internal and external stake holder management whilst you lead on the efficiency strategy, manage the sub contract sign off governance and in turn ensure development of the wider team's knowledge, skills and training.

You'll manage a team of cost analyst to support the joint delivery on all aspects of planning procurement and execution.

You will promote a culture of trust, integrity and honestly through out all alliances, using your communication and leadership skills.
