Job Description

Strategic Advisory work with clients to understand their issues and create innovative, ground-breaking solutions.

  • Liaising with clients on a weekly basis to ensure they are informed and updated on the project’s progress using Mace’s project governance documents.
  • Identify risks and escalate as necessary to appropriate project lead.

Your work base will be flexible and could be in one of Mace offices or at a client’s office or facility. You will gain exposure to all aspects of project delivery from concept design, through to construction, commissioning, validation handover and into operation.
