One of your main responsibilities will be capturing and monitoring data to ensure plans, costs, schedules, contracts, pricing and invoicing information are correctly in place and accurately reported.

Due to the nature of this role, we’ll expect you to have a good grasp of preparing cost control plans and procedures, with a keen attention to detail and a desire to deliver the best possible product at all times.
