Why not...

Atkins is part of the SNC Lavalin Group of companies. SNC Lavalin and Atkins are global leaders in Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operations (AECO). As such, they are aggressively growing their Digital Asset Management and Operations (DAMO) business to support both internal and external clients. This business combines inherently deep engineering knowledge of assets, strong domain expertise in asset management and operations, and leading technology capabilities. Through this combination of capabilities, we help reduce costs, control risks, and improve whole life asset performance of critical infrastructure and other assets that we and our clients operate.

Purpose of the Role:
The DAMO Consulting Leader role is a combination of sales, delivery, and thought leadership. From a sales perspective, the role will work across SNC-Lavalin business units and geographies to help drive DAMO sales in support of the local teams. This could include: lead generation, supporting proposal writing and development, meeting with and presenting to prospective clients, and providing proposal review, guidance and advice to local teams. The global DAMO has a sales target for 2019, and the DAMO Global Consulting Leader will have a material impact on monitoring sales pipeline and helping the DAMO team attain that goal.

From a delivery perspective, the DAMO Consulting Leader will work part-time in a project delivery role on different projects throughout the year. These roles will be varied in nature, but will tend to be focused on helping local teams initiate projects, and overseeing projects to ensure they stay on track. The delivery role could also entail sole responsibility for smaller deliverables such as an Asset Management Assessment. There is a cost recovery target for the DAMO Consulting Leader, and includes both time for billable work, as well as time for work charged to other business units.

In terms of thought leadership, the DAMO Consulting Leader will be active in the industry and in relevant professional forums. This could include writing and publishing professional articles and papers, speaking at industry events, and chairing or otherwise participating in industry working groups such as ISO. This will involve engaging with Marketing and the broader SNCL business to identify and target appropriate events and publications to align with the wider DAMO Strategy.

This role will also help the DAMO define new product or service offerings, and will mentor the next generation of thought leaders and deliverers at SNC-Lavalin.
