  • Ideally, experience within a global, matrix environment, with a high degree of regulation.
  • Strong Commercial acumen, with the ability to understand cost models, contracting, and deal with Legal, Finance and Technology teams.
  • Exposure to Programme environments, and energised by large separation activity.
