Crossrail is an ambitious project to deliver a new railway across London, it is among the most ambitious construction projects our country has seen and is the largest infrastructure project in Europe. Building this new railway will involve constructing 21km of tunnels under London and building eight new stations at key locations. When completed, Crossrail will dramatically cut journey times across the city and reduce congestion on the Tube and National Rail services. Crossrail is a high profile project with high performing teams and offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a significant and lasting contribution to the life of London and the country as a whole.
This key role will be to quantitatively analyse the risk exposure of the Crossrail Programme with a particular emphasis on the assessment of schedule risk at both Programme and Project level. This will involve working to identify threats, opportunities and issues that could affect the programme objectives, and modelling the identified risks in quantitative terms such as cost and time.
The aim is to produce high-quality assessments of risk exposure, which the Crossrail executive, board and sponsors and the Treasury can use as a reliable basis for making decisions.
As well as having a degree (or equivalent) in a numerate discipline, you will need a good understanding of cost estimating and project planning techniques, and the ability to produce cost and schedule risk models in @Risk and Pertmaster. Having already worked as a risk analyst or risk manager, you will be experienced in project risk management and quantitative risk assessment techniques.
This role is based at the Crossrail head office in Canary Wharf. The remuneration package includes a competitive basic salary, final salary pension, private healthcare, 75% reimbursement of an annual season ticket on national rail and free travel on the tube, DLR and buses for yourself and a nominee.
To apply please email your current CV and remuneration package to our retained consultants Newsom Consulting at firstname.lastname@example.org quoting ‘Schedule Risk IRM’ in the subject line.
Crossrail values the diversity that exists in London and aspires to this being reflected in their workforce.
