A true Business Partner role, you enjoy servicing a wide range of people across the business and like the prospect of juggling the demands of multiple stakeholders, being solution driven and working to tight deadlines.

In this role, you'll want to be able to comfortably challenge budgeting assumptions, ensure the integrity and best usage of the job management system, continually review the job profitability and identify any sub-optimal margins.
Ultimately, this role is about helping the account teams maximise the margins they can get. You'll be integral to helping the client teams grow their accounts and you take pride on being able to maximise the profitability of each of them.
