Project Manager (based in Sellafield) - Military veterans preferred

Kellogg Brown & Root (


  full-time   employee

United Kingdom


Our Client has identified the need for project and program management support to deliver 17 major construction projects associated with developing the infrastructure required for the reprocessing and making safe of nuclear waste material. CAPEX for the 20 year program is estimated at $6.5billion. The support the Client requires is being procured through the selection of 4 Program and Project Partners (PPP) to form an integrated team for the 20 year programme duration. The PPP partnership will be comprised of: Integration (Lot 1), Engineering & Design (Lot 2), Civil Construction (Lot 3), Process Construction (Lot 4), and Sellafield. Each Partner has defined scope responsibility, and combined responsibility for delivering the Major Projects on time and budget for which there is a gain share mechanism in place.

The Integration Partner will be required to provide strategic and enabling project management support as required to structure and deliver the portfolio of Major Projects under the PPP Project. Major Projects will be delivered through Aligned Delivery Teams (ADT), which will be integrated teams formed from all Lot Partners using the principle of best athlete, while taking cognisance of each Lot Partners specific scope responsibility. The Integration Partner will also be required to deliver Site-Wide Project Delivery Improvements and ensure the collaborative working environment with Client and the other Lot Partners is developed and nurtured.

The Integration Partner team at mobilisation will be circa 30 strong, growing to circa 300 over 5-10 years.

The position will initially be based in Warrington (near Manchester and Liverpool) to be near the engineering resource, but will migrate to West Cumbria (adjacent to the Lake District) as the projects move into their construction stages. Frequent travel between these locations is likely to be required. A minimum three year commitment to the position is essential, as is the ability to build a highly collaborative culture of a large diverse team.

Ideally the candidate should have worked with KBR either as an employee, JV partner or client representative, but this is not essential.
