Our client is an independent consultancy of approximately 200 staff providing evaluations of capital projects to the Oil and Gas Industry. A Project Analyst is required to join the existing UK based team owing to continuing success and expansion. Based in Reading the successful candidate will join the team responsible for servicing upstream clients across mainly Europe, Africa, Middle East and Russia / FSU region but also South American and Far East regions.
The company has a flat management structure and employees are expected to be involved with all aspects of their services from business development through data gathering to remote analysis. As such the role will be responsible for frequent client visits of anything from 1 day to 1 week, travel will account for up to a third of the incumbent's time. Assignment length is typically in the region of three to six weeks and so applicants can expect a fast turnover of multiple and diverse projects. Typical projects involve data collection, statistical models, research analysis, best practice, risk analysis and capital expenditure analysis of upstream exploration and production related projects.
Major responsibilities include collecting and analyzing data, writing reports, giving client presentations, and working with clients to develop Best Practices to improve clients’ business competitiveness. Analysts must always prepare and research upcoming projects.

Experience and understanding of the upstream petroleum environment, specifically reservoir geoscience or reservoir engineering
Operating experience is highly desirable, but not essential.
Excellent mathematics / data analysis skills - quantitative statistical analysis a bonus
Effective written and oral communication skills - English essential, other second language desirable.
Due to the level of travel across the EMEA, FSU and occasionally USA region it is essential that you are eligible to live and work in the UK/EU. Reed - 11 months ago
