We are looking for a Workpack Coordinator, with a mechanical background, to support the newly established Centralised TAR (turnaround) Team. The successful applicant will report to the TAR Lead and provide engineering expertise and technical support to the TAR team.

Key accountabilities

  • Provide construction engineering input and expertise to ensure the shutdown (TAR) is delivered safely & on time.
  • Accountable for the preparation, quality and delivery of all information required for their allocated TAR workpacks within the agreed milestones.
  • Prepare job sketches (or drawings if possible) that clearly identify the scope and materials. Where required these may also incorporate any specific field construction instructions including fabrication, site run and supports.
  • Ensure all inspection and operations requirements including agreed isolations are incorporated.
  • Preparation of SIP (scaffold, insulation or painting) requests that are detailed and clear.
  • Prepare bills of material (BoM) that are correct and accurate – check against approved pipe and/or valve specifications. Clearly identify direct purchase materials or contractor supplied (e.g consumable) to the TAR materials coordinator.
  • Prepare the Job breakdown identifying all 3rd party requirements and resources hours using agreed norms or estimates.
  • Identify any long lead or special items to the appropriate TAR discipline engineer for approval.
  • During the TAR preparations phase, take a leading role in developing construction methodologies and schedules which deliver the TAR scope within the system windows. Consider any other TAR scopes, simultaneous operations or SHE/permit requirements to prepare robust and tested plans with the TAR planning team.
  • Look for any opportunities to maximise pre-TAR works or alternative rationale for performing works outside of a TAR. Both with the benefit of removing scope from the TAR executions.
