As the successful candidate you should hold a bachelors degree in engineering. A Master degree and related certification(s) (e.g., PE, PMI, PMP, and Quantity Surveying/Surveyors Institutes) are highly desirable.
You will have a minimum of 12 years experience in heavy industrial capital projects with diverse experience in engineering, procurement and construction with an emphasis on estimating and cost control. It is highly desirable if some of the experience years were devoted to oil and gas, petrochemical, refinery, pipeline, or power generation projects.
You will be familiar with computer/software estimating programs (e.g., Oracle).
You will have knowledge of project management and construction practices, including materials and equipment.
You must be capable of evaluating and consulting on cost control or estimating problems where precedents are lacking, or on problems where high levels of specialized knowledge are required.
Duties & Responsibilities:
You will perform the following:
Provide professional expertise and high level consultation in the resolution of complex estimating and cost engineering problems.
Develop, in conjunction with relevant supervisory personnel, comprehensive cost control procedures for specific projects as requested by Project Management and Construction.
Provide budget and conceptual estimates for Aramco and/or Joint Venture capital projects as requested.
Analyze cost reports for on-going projects to identify potential problem areas. Report findings to immediate supervisor and/or proponent as applicable.
Evaluate cost overrun situations and provide detailed recommendations for corrective action.
Provide special studies related to current and/or long range impacts, such as cost escalation and productivity.
Keep up to date with developments in the estimating and cost engineering fields, and with construction practices and trends worldwide, with emphasis on Saudi Arabia.
