What's exciting is:

You will be joining the business to be part of one of the most complex infrastructure programmes in the country at a pivotal moment in its evolution. The UK government has committed substantial investment into improving our infrastructure, so we are building a talented team to make the most of this opportunity. It is a new approach for AWE and we need someone who can support a new programme in its set up then evolution into a full, long-term project.

As a Cost Engineer, you will be working in Project Controls with responsibility for all aspects of Cost within one of the Programme Controls Teams.

Every day is different and could include any or all of the following:

Reporting and data extrapolation

The reports inform project teams: How are we doing? What will we spend? Factors to consider in terms of cost include labour resource and commitments such as purchase orders.
Focus could be 1 year or 10 years in terms of projection.
Physical run of reports in Fusion - mainly bespoke extrapolation of specific data.
Amending and adapting spreadsheets so they are fit for purpose for each report.
Identifying anomalies in data then analysing and interrogating the information before providing an analysis to support the project manager with understanding Cost.
Accruals / Prepayment - this is key as it requires a good understanding of the principles of prepayments to ensure compliance within Project reporting.
Checking and actioning project transfers - moving the correct transfers between projects or within a project.
Understanding source of transactions and data flow to ensure that the Cost transactions are understandable.
ADFDI Uploads - (Interface to Fusion upload) to create forecast data.
Using tools such as P6 for budgeting on bigger projects to extrapolate data.
Utilising spreadsheets for forecasting.
Oracle projects housekeeping - ensuring work break down structure is up to date and reporting flags are maintained - i.e., charging tasks are correct.
Maintenance of asset definitions for MOD reporting.
Using EVM (Earned Value Management) tools and data effectively
Managing change control by ensuring data and financial values stack up. Is what we are asking for in the system?
Trend analysis - reviewing data such as manpower/ forecasting/ travel and subsistent - this varies, the project area you are in dictates what costs are key.
Maintenance of project asset definitions to identify physical assets within a project for reporting purposes.
Supporting annual budget preparation data for construction
Early engagement through helping with estimation and forecasting by providing the information used to estimate -such as historical data and commitments.

Stakeholder Engagement

Continuous engagement with stakeholders: Planners/ Project Managers/ Task Managers to agree the monthly cycle and commitments.
Attending forecast meetings as an integral participant as Cost Engineer input to interpret and explain the data is key.
Immersion within the project to ensure a complete understanding - keeping up to speed with what the Project Manager knows or is planning in order to advise all stakeholders and explain the "why" behind issues.
Using a blend of charisma and negotiation skills to challenge and influence Project Managers and Task Managers.
Engaging with Procurement to keep up to date with all of the challenges and movement within the supply chain and how the orders are progressing through the system.
Making sure that colleagues use the data provided by ensuring it is useful and in language that is easily understandable.
