Cost Controller

  •  Todd Energy
  •  Aug 2013 - Apr 2021

Beginning as Technical Assistant for the greenfield Engineering & Projects department. Scope included general project administration alongside cost control assistance to the Lead Cost Controller. Transitioning to the Production Operations department in 20xx, I implemented cost control and annual budget procedures, alongside assisting project leads with management of CAPEX and OPEX budgets up to `$45mm yearly. Working closely with project stakeholders, updating and reporting on up to 120 live projects simultaneously to meet both project and financial deadlines. The ability to interface across multiple disciplines and maintain strong working relationships was crucial to this role, along with the ability to quickly pickup on technical project details.
