Decommissioning Solution Centre Manager

About the role


This is an opportunity to join the newly established Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) that will have a strategic impact on extending the competitive life of the UK’s oil and gas industry.

The OGTC has been created to become the ‘go to’ world class technology centre for developing, adapting and deploying technology in support to the oil and gas industry. Working through Solution Centres and local Centres of Excellence, the OGTC is committed to not only maximising the economic recovery of the North Sea, but also doubling associated oil and gas supply chain exports over the next ten years.

Reporting directly to the CEO, the Decommissioning Solution Centre Manager will be responsible for all operational aspects of the Decommissioning Solution Centre and will be expected to add value commercially, strategically and operationally across other Solution Centres.

The Decommissioning Solution Centre Manager will:

  • Assist to identify then appraise the relevance, readiness and accessibility of existing technology in the market place (e.g. universities, service and supply network, oil and gas operators, independent institutions). Once selected, help engage and adapt the technology into the theme solutions.
  • Assist to identify and appraise the applicability of technologies being deployed in other industrial sectors capable of technology transfer into the upstream oil and gas industry in support of the Decommissioning technology theme solution.
  • Identify specific technology gaps that remain and design & deliver programmes to resolve these gaps. Deliver either internally in OGTC or outsourced to other sources including emerging Centres of Excellence in Aberdeen University and Robert Gordon University.

We are looking for an experienced and credible senior professional who will form part of a strong and balanced leadership team, supporting the CEO in the implementation of a clear strategy. This is an excellent opportunity to shape both the OGTC and influence the industry to develop and adopt cost effective and safe decommissioning technologies, processes and techniques.

We are looking to appoint a qualified professional who has experience working at a senior level within the oil and gas industry, ideally from within an E&P business. The successful candidate will have strong stakeholder management experience.

Interested candidates should send their application, including current remuneration details, to Stuart Cochrane of FWB Park Brown at, or call 01224 317 344 for a confidential discussion.
