- A strong engineering or construction background, ideally with Transmission experience, and a proven track record in the successful delivery of major projects.

- Experience of the reporting and management requirements that come with such a role and an in-depth understanding of the administration of the NEC3 suite of contracts would be an advantage.

- The ability to accurately forecast and control costs.
