Objectives and Key Deliverables

We are an international FTSE listed Energy Company.

We are currently in need for support on one of our projects. This project aims to reduce sustainably the maintenance cost by 20% vs 2016 for the 2021 budget, without jeopardizing reliability.

Aspiration is to improve and achieve a Q1/2 breakpoint with regards to cost performance on the maintenance index by 2022. In order to achieve this, first significant improvements need to be realized in 2018.

The reduction will be achieved by “Fixing the Base Business” and selected “High Impact Projects”.

“Fixing the Base” will have three pillars:
1. Gaining a better understanding of the gap and potential to reduce costs compared to 2016.
2. The project will have 5 workstreams: a) Performance Management, b) Cost control, c) Manage Equipment Care, d) Workflow Management, and e) Asset Data Control & IT. Please only submit your proposal where your experience is most relevant
3. A culture and behavior program should focus on: cost controlling, interfaces, competences and continuous improvement in order to enable a lean maintenance structure.

The „Hybrid Consultant “ will support the implementation of the project - 10% of the task is supporting the program management process and reporting, 30% is to help defining standards, assess gap analyses and develop implementation plans. 60% is to implement in the field with “change agents” in order to close the gap and foster the right behavior. In order to engage with the change agents, German language skills are a prerequisite.
