In order to support the delivery of the strategies, the postholder will also be required to:

  • Review overall policy and strategies, and corporate plan objectives with their geographical area, understanding key risks, issues, and constraints systematically and develop prioritised list of investigations. 

  • Define analytical investigations for Asset Performance to undertake

  • Working with Asset Planning and Network Strategy teams, scope, and sponsor feasibility and optioneering studies to define proposed ways forward to mitigate risks, using the costed results to recommend future investment and build business cases for future business plans

  • Review and update area strategies annually (small updates) and three yearly (major updates) with key stakeholder engagement

  • Undertake reviews, alongside Asset Performance and Asset Planning to confirm strategies are succeeding, and modify, if required

  • Lead on Business Plan (Periodic Review) investment stream development on behalf of Asset Management

  • Develop targeted strategies to deliver the AM vision, ensuring optimised asset and system performance and maximised asset life – e.g. M&E, Civil Structures, tanks, instrumentation, valves, and other ancillaries, etc. 

             

Generic responsibilities within the Policy and Strategy Team

  • Use appropriate techniques, supported by Asset Planning to investigate, and define the proposed interventions outlined in the strategy

  • Working with Asset Information and Asset Performance teams, investigate and understand how to apply impacts of asset, process, and site criticality based on system understanding.

  • Ensure implementation of the defined strategy, ensuring ongoing monitoring and reporting on compliance through the development and implementation of lead key performance indicators (KPI’s)

  • Working with the Innovation Strategy lead and Maintenance Strategy Lead, consider innovative techniques and opportunities as part of asset maintenance strategies and ensure processes align with best practice

  • Develop and maintain appropriate stakeholder relationships.

  • Consider options and opportunities available through the supply chain
