About the role

This particular role will exist in the pool, with a focus on Decision Evaluation activities, whose purpose is to lead evaluation activities across the Company so that the value of every business decision is clear. We achieve this by providing independent, robust and high quality evaluations of proposed investment opportunities, taking into account risk and uncertainty. To maximize our influence, we operate collaboratively and in a commercially astute way.

You will have a diverse background that may include consulting, investment banking, corporate finance, law or engineering experience.  Irrespective of background, you will be able to offer commercial insight, analytical expertise and strategic thinking and have strong communication skills.  An ability to lead in cross-functional team settings is a key dimension of the role as is the ability to influence upwards. The primary accountability is to create shareholder value by framing, evaluating and clearly communicating proposed investments to senior decision-makers.
