News International Market Segment Leader - Industrial Water & Process Market

Location: Abu Dhabi or Dubai, UAE

CH2M HILL's Industrial Systems Business Group has helped numerous industrial facilities develop and implement integrated water management systems using an approach that focuses on creating the most effective and efficient water systems that will enhance production, improve safety, increase compliance, and reduce life-cycle costs.  The Water & Process Market Segment focuses on services related to:

* All things dealing with water in industrial facilities (excluding potable water and domestic wastewater, which fall under the scope of Water BG)

*In-plant pollution prevention and process engineering that focuses on environmental issues

*Air pollution control systems (excluding power plants, which are managed by Power BG)

Our integrated water management service incorporates all elements of water use across the entire water envelope of a facility-water source & supply, water treatment & distribution, in-plant water use, and wastewater treatment & discharge-while minimizing environmental, economic, and societal impacts.

An increasing awareness of environmental issues poses significant challenges to the day-to-day operations of many organizations.  Our Industrial Systems Business Group provides full-service consulting and engineering solutions to help clients navigate, understand, manage, and mitigate risks, identify opportunities, and ensure regulatory compliance while satisfying the demands of investors, regulators, and the public.

Our Abu Dhabi (or possibly Dubai) office seeks an International Market Segment Leader (IMSL) who will focus on growing our business for the Water & Process sector in MENA, with a strong emphasis on large engineering and EPC projects for the oil & gas, refining, chemicals and petrochemicals industry sectors.

The IMSL is charged with leading the growth of the market segment's business in a geographic theater, as defined by CH2M HILL structure, in this case the Middle East and North Africa.  His or her performance will be measured by how the firm is perceived and performs in the theater market place.  IMSL's achieve the firm's prominence through application of strategic vision, persuasive leadership, coordination with local and remote office staff, and application of necessary directive efforts.  IMSL's are action-oriented positions; needed actions are based upon solid market information, instinct, and coordination with the firm's theater and global staff members.  IMSL's assist in development of the business units' strategies within the theater.

The successful candidate will be involved with client development in coordination with our enterprise account teams.  This BD leader will become a core part of CH2M HILL's global Industrial Water & Process Leadership Team, with a focus on growing clients through quality delivery.

The position will also include development of internal relationships to support the overall growth and success of CH2M HILL operations in MENA, mentoring mid-level staff, supporting cross-business unit activities and stewarding client satisfaction.  A competitive package would be offered including housing and relocation assistance.  If an expatriate, this assignment is expected to be over 36 months.
