Overview / Responsibilities

Wood has an immediate requirement for an Engagement Lead to join our Energy, Optimisation and Innovation team based centrally in our Perth CBD office.

Reporting to the Senior Regional Manager APAC, our successful candidate will join an assembly of selected global talent that powers successful digital transformation in a practical and tangible way.

We are looking for individuals who will value and thrive when working closely with clients, and our best global business, digital and deep domain experts to drive tangible outcomes.

About the role:
  • You will typically lead a client project team of 5 - 8 business, digital and deep domain experts focusing on rapid and sustained value delivery in maintenance, production, reliability, inventory and emissions
  • Our final deliverables and artefacts gravitate toward providing software solutions including artificial intelligence and physics models that continuously look to add value through operations
  • You will lead the day to day execution of a client project while guiding and developing individual team members. Working directly with clients, you'll take ownership of the overall project and its end products.

  • In a collaborative team setting, you'll work closely with others but also autonomously with little direction. Your superior analytical, quantitative and conceptual thinking skills and strong interpersonal and communication skills will ensure successful client projects and team performance.
  • Client project work typically includes gathering and analysing information, formulating and testing hypotheses, and developing recommendations for presentation to client management. From there, you will implement those recommendations and engage with client team members.
