Our Client is a global, well respected organisation who are actively seeking to appoint an experienced Project Engineer / Work-Package Manager to join a busy and growing department.

This is a senior leadership role where you will direct the activities of the material team to achieve the maximum value of interfacing between design, procurement and site function to enable efficient, cost effective ordering and supply of materials for the project use. The role requires a high degree of understanding complex design drawings in order to understand and establish work flow, materials and production capacity.

Responsibilities as the Project Engineer / Work Package Manager:

Our client is offering a competitive package + benefits with huge potential for personal development.
