LTT RAS - Commercial Assurance - Capital Projects Cost Consultant
About the role
Significant value is built and eroded through capital projects across industries, sectors and geographies. The ability to manage capital project delivery risk has been a defining capability for successful companies with asset intensive businesses – such as those in the energy, utilities, mining and construction industries – along with a myriad of government entities focusing on infrastructure development and refurbishment. The risks associated with major capital projects often hit the enterprise risk radar screen, and for many organisations there is an opportunity to boost the level of risk assurance focus and expertise when it comes to capital project governance, contract and commercial management, risk management and controls.
At PwC, our global Commercial Assurance Capital Projects team provides project risk assurance, contract audit and controls advisory support to clients across industries and territories. We deliver an optimal combination of project audit and technical expertise, with our team comprising a diverse range of experts including civil, mechanical and chemical engineers, as well as project management, construction, accounting and IT professionals. Our experience in portfolio, programme, and project controls with large scale capital project execution spans across the public and private sector including utilities, construction, mining, oil and gas, and public infrastructure.
Our team is currently expanding and we’re seeking talented, high performing, industry professionals to join our national team across all levels of experience.
If you enjoy working with high profile clients, then our Commercial Assurance Capital Projects team at PwC will provide you with that opportunity. The role requires flexibility & mobility, with national & international travel often required. .
