Job Overview: URGENT: A major Oil and Gas Operator seeks a Team Leader to provide strategic advice and solutions in relation to permissions and securities of a Global Search Tool that has been developed for their global upstream business. This tool will enable the user community to search across millions of upstream documents. They are well advanced in the development and rollout of this tool but are currently facing problems with regard to access permissions/security of assets, documents, their locations etc. Applicants are invited with a strong business focused background and proven experience of search systems and the sensitivities surrounding permissions and securities. The ability to manage a small development team in implementing the required solution is also key. This is an urgent position and it is envisaged it will be a minimum of 6 months.

The Operator has in excess of 10 million documents that are accessible via this Global Search Tool. The tool has been rolled out globally, but has encountered some problems relating to permissions/securities issues which need to be urgently addressed. The tool has been built by a third party and customised for the operator. It enables searches across numerous systems e.g. SharePoint, Document Systems, Cloud Lake, etc. technologies.

The main aspect of this role is to identify the stakeholders involved globally, understand their concerns surrounding permissions/securities, detail the documents/assets that are key and the corrections that need to be made. These stakeholders are many as they cover the whole of upstream globally – they will include managers at country/regional level, subsurface personnel (geology, geophysics, reservoir engineering), HR, Legal, Finance and external stakeholders (i.e. contracting companies who add value to various documents in the course of their service delivery).

The Development Team consists of 3-4 people. As part of your role you will manage these personnel in the implementation of all changes relating to securities/permissions.
Preferences: The successful candidate will have:
  • Proven upstream oil and gas business focus essential.
  • Previous document management system experience highly advantageous.
  • Knowledge of security/permissions issues regarding upstream documents – understanding the sensitivities of assets is key essential.
  • Highly self-motivated who can manage their own time and deliver to tight project deadlines.
  • Strong project management skills – ability to manage the Team ensuring that all changes re permissions/securities are made efficiently and effectively.
  • Highly analytical/methodical – the ability to understand the problem, the tools available and to deliver the solution.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills essential – the ability to interact effectively across all stakeholders globally to assess and prioritise problems and define solutions.
  • Highly diplomatic - dealing with senior management globally with potential conflicts of interest or understanding of ownerships.
  • Excellent communications skills essential (both written and oral English), with the ability to present findings.
Package: This is a senior level role and a highly competitive market Day Rate is on offer dependent on skills and experience.
