Job Description

This is an exciting opportunity for a customer focused, resilient and motivated individual who is interested in working with the Connection Projects team to deliver key infrastructure projects for some of the biggest companies in the world.

The role involves facilitating the connection of new generation, demand and interconnection customers to the transmission system. It involves the project management of technically complex, large scale infrastructure projects - on-time and within budget, adhering to established governance and controls. The role holder will work on projects across their entire life cycle - from project initiation, through construction and commissioning and right up to project close.

You will lead strategic, change related projects - for example innovations to more effectively meet the needs of connecting customers, our key stakeholders and deliver on our company strategy. You will lead engagement and coordination with our partners in ESB Networks and our customers including meetings, reporting, relationship management, and general communication as applicable to the project management role.

You will support the development of high-performance capabilities and behaviours within the team and a proactive customer and stakeholder engagement approach. You provide direction and assistance to team members, junior staff and consultants.

You will hold an engineering degree or equivalent, typically with 6+ years relevant experience with a holistic understanding of the power industry. You will have proven experience of managing a portfolio of largescale projects - overseeing the delivery of complex solutions and an ability to drive successful outcomes.

You will be passionate, engaging with a drive and enthusiasm to deliver on the company Strategy with and through others. You will have the ability to coach and develop high performance capabilities in a changing and dynamic environment.

You will have excellent communication skills, able to articulate technical concepts and analysis to non-technical audiences and business leaders. You will have expertise in conceiving and introducing innovative ideas, solutions or new ways of doing things to solve business problems, collaborating with business experts along the way. A full driver's license is essential for this role
