  • Work in collaboration with the Delivery Team to identify, implement and monitor efficiency plans throughout the lifecycle of a project or programme of projects
  • Ensuring that proper records (including final accounts) are kept & maintained so financial information for audits and cost assurance is readily available

About You

Skills/Experience
