  • Take the lead on programme governance and longer-term project and portfolio process

Any candidate considered for this level of role should have exception stakeholder management skills and the ability to build relationships with colleagues, peers and other key senior contacts.

 

Experience within the Lean, Operational Excellent and Continuous Improvement space will be sought after, given the nature of the transformation initiative, and the ability to look at the bigger picture and longer term strategy is very much required.
