  • Strategically bring together key stakeholders and capture data from corporate systems and site visits to provide risk and cost information to support investment planning process.

  • Leading workshops with various stakeholders to understand current and future risks and identifying how these might be resolved.

  • Generate initial root cause statements, evaluation of risks and creation of solutions to produce investments from the system plan for prioritisation.

  • Working with key stakeholders and business experts to support regulatory requirements to produce Water Resource and Drainage and Wastewater Management plans (WRMP & DWMP).
