Operations Project Officer

When going on holiday do you like to plan everything out in advance, ensuring you have all the documents you require with an itinerary to hand? You might even keep an eye out for traffic updates so you can choose the best possible route?

As a Project Officer for National Gas Transmission, you'll plan, oversee, coordinate and document all aspects of a specific project, helping define scope and direction to keep the project on schedule. You'll manage all planned work using allocated resources to produce a cost-effective, customer-focused and efficient service within budget.

You'll supervise operational activities on a day-to-day basis, ensuring that business objectives and efficient work practices are met. You'll know the difference between SCO 1,2, 91 and 94 and the operation and maintenance of high and low pressure gas networks will be second nature to you.

Other responsibilities will include keeping contractors updated on new techniques and codes of practice, managing and supervising multi-disciplined teams and undertaking competency reviews, STC's, site audits and driving value through staff engagement.

You must hold a valid UK car driving licence and visits to other sites across the UK will be required so expect some travel and overnight stays. This role will also require an aspect of depot management.

About us

We are National Gas, including National Gas Transmission and National Gas Metering.

In February 2023 we became a standalone business, to maintain and own the Gas Infrastructure in the UK. But more than that, to develop and grow this infrastructure to set us up for a cleaner energy future. A future of Hydrogen.

This means we are currently in a period of both opportunity and uncertainty. While nobody knows exactly what things will look like in a years’ time, those who join the business now will have a unique opportunity to shape the future of Gas Transmission in the UK.

The closing date is 31st March 2023, although in some cases I’ll close the ad early, so don’t delay.

I’ll respond to every single application.
