We're looking for skilled, expert and motivated people who'll help us meet national needs in Defence, Transportation, Energy and Water. Our future success depends on having the very best team of people who will help us to meet our clients’ complex challenges by providing our solutions faster, with more innovation and at less cost. We need excellent Project Control Managers for high profile consultancy opportunities in our Defence business.
Project Control Managers (PCMs) enable more effective decision-making by delivering a comprehensive reporting/management information service to clients. PCMs analyse the business challenge and set up the processes, organisation, tools and technology to provide project control. They apply rigour to the capture, scrutiny and analysis of the data produced, providing hard objective evidence to drive the right decisions for the good of the project. PCMs apply effective planning techniques and controls (earned value analysis, cost and schedule variance, estimates at completion, critical path analysis). Increasingly, PCMs need also to focus on value and benefits management.
The role is high profile and both inward and outward facing; undertaking complex planning activity whilst assisting the up-skilling of Assistant Project Managers and Project Managers through proactive knowledge transfer in the Defence Sector.
The PCM thoroughly understands, customising to ensure “fit for purpose”, improving and training the Planning & Project Controls team on the use of the processes prescribed by Costain (e.g. The Costain Way, PC software, Baseline Schedule development and management, Performance Status and Reporting, Baseline Change Control, Risk Management, Earned Value Management, Programme Controls Management System (PCMS) processes, guidance and tools, etc.)
We listened to our employees so our Core Benefits are funded by us and include a Group Pension Scheme, Employee Assistance Programme, Life Assurance, Income Protection and funded membership to a Professional Institute. In addition to this we also offer a Private Healthcare Scheme, Private Dental Scheme, Childcare Vouchers, Cycle to Work, Volunteering Days and Save as You Earn Scheme.
At Costain we aim to be an accessible, diverse and inclusive organisation to continue to meet our customers’ needs. We will be industry leading in our approach and people from all backgrounds will be proud to work for Costain. Our goal is to have a workforce that is representative of society.
We actively encourage applications from candidates who have a relationship with the armed forces community whether as a currently serving member or reservist, ex-military or wounded personnel or as a member of a service family.
