Job Description

Up-to-date intelligence and strategies for market position and value proposition are critical to our success in Asia Pacific’s dynamic markets. These are doubly critical in evaluating and bidding on project opportunities and ensuring we choose and bid on the right projects at the right prices… and then price change orders appropriately.

  • Train and develop local teams.
  • The position is an opportunity to gain exposure to  market operations across Asia Pacific and globally. This will be an opportunity to build skills and experience in strategic and operational project and program management. The role is an especially strong fit for individuals who are interested in developing a broad view of and expertise in front-line operations as a step on a general management career path.
