Awilco Drilling is an ambitious offshore drilling contractor with a clear strategy to take advantage of favourable market conditions to grow a high quality and cost efficient mobile rig fleet. The company has a strong balance sheet, is well funded and has ambitions to actively seek to identify and acquire suitable assets on a global basis.
In anticipation of a growing fleet, the organisation seeks to be proactive in the identification of high calibre individuals who can lead key functions in a potentially more demanding and higher expectation business environment. Specifically, the role of Technical Manager has been prioritised. The profile of candidates will be proven and experienced professionals, however the scope exists for candidates to possess a more contemporary and innovative approach to this traditional role. As the company grows its rig fleet the role will likely intensify and develop in seniority and influence.
Reporting to the COO based in Aberdeen, the Technical Manager will assume overall responsibility for ensuring the production and coordination of all engineering deliverables, generating technical workscopes, meeting project requirements and overseeing budgets and schedules. The role will also encompass overseeing technical interfaces with clients, suppliers and subcontractors. In response to the needs of a growing rig fleet, the appointee at the appropriate time will be required to develop and lead a highly capable engineering team focussed on delivering the highest standards of technical excellence.
Candidates for this appointment will possess significant technical experience within the offshore rig contracting sector. Exceptional planning, organisational and commercial skills will be required along with the ability to proactively build positive relationships externally and with a peer group of senior managers, acting as a focal point for communications on engineering issues.
