We work in a regulated environment, and as such, we must ensure our policies are developed and maintained to best serve the developing needs of our customers and stakeholders. With this in mind, we are looking for a Commercial Policy Manager to join our team whose main  responsibility will be delivering the commercial business objectives of Transmission.

Project orientated, you’ll have a knack for time management, with an ability to deliver within challenging deadlines and to highly detailed specifications. Last but certainly not least, you will be extremely safety orientated, both in a practical, onsite and commercial, policy sense.
