You will collate divisional information and report both internally (senior management/board) and externally (government) in a timely manner to align with key reporting dates. The operational divisions can provide challenges so your experience, maturity and confidence will allow you to engage a diverse, senior internal stakeholder group in order to secure the data you require. As such, you will need to be tenacious and resilient. There is likely to be some travel during the first few months so that you have the opportunity to gain familiarity with business operations and build relationships with key divisional stakeholders.
In your engineering oriented background you can also point to commercial/finance experience.
