The role will be responsible for the delivery of Horizon One of the BTP with the potential to expand the implementation of Horizon Two, pending appropriate approvals.
As Program Director, you will advocate the value this program will create for staff, LMW customers and the community. The Program Director will also drive performance and continuous improvement outcomes in the teams, tracking the benefit of the Business Transformation Program, ensuring all parties deliver projects and results within agreed quality standards, budget, and timeframes.
