Job Profile

Mott MacDonald is a £1.2 billion management, engineering and development consultancy with 16,000 staff and a global reach spanning six continents. Our network of 180 principal offices in 140 countries gives us local market insight backed by world class expertise to deliver excellence for every client.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate, and take positive steps to create an inclusive culture.

About the Role:
What do you think of when you hear the phrase ‘digital delivery’? If the answer is BIM tools, GIS platforms, common data environments and workflow automation, then this role might not be for you.
If, on the other hand you think of digital as default for a business winning and thriving in an increasingly digitally-disrupted global market, and all that entails, then read on…

Unlocking the full business potential of today’s digital technologies and tomorrow’s emerging trends is now as important an element of market success as balance sheet strength and social license to operate. To achieve this we have created a network of digital leaders embedded at region, unit, and division level.

The challenge ahead is both rewarding and risky. Prizes of increasing efficiency, margin enhancement, brand equity, new revenue streams, greater client satisfaction, and more, are all up for grabs via today’s tranche of project technologies. Technology though isn’t standing still.

Emerging digital trends have the potential to be disruptive - breaking and remaking industry business models, creating new definitions of value in markets, delivering not only new forms of competition but new competitors too.
Our Digital Delivery Network will be at the sharp end, navigating the road - balancing the pragmatic day-to-day needs of business delivery, whilst enabling us to adapt and thrive in a landscape of constant digital change. Tightly coupled with business goals and markets, digital leaders will need to think and act ‘in the round’. They will be called upon to tackle everything from driving improvement towards business KPIs, to managing the ethereal trials of digital ethics and Emotional ROI as we bring the full breadth of the group’s most important resource, our people, along with us.

A fantastic opportunity to help guide Mott MacDonald into a new era. Are you up for the challenge?
