Do you have the strong positive leadership skills and technical insight needed to be the next Head of TO Projects…?
We Offer
Based in Lyngby near Copenhagen, the Head of TO Projects has overall responsibility for rig maintenance and upgrade projects. Managing a team of 45-50, the Head of TO Projects is responsible for the planning, programme and project management for the yard stays of the entire Maersk Drilling fleet.

During 2014, Maersk Drilling conducted 5 yard stays in multiple locations including New Orleans, Baku, Esbjerg, Palermo and Singapore. There are 2 yard stays planned for 2015 which gives ample opportunity to review the lessons learned and put in place procedures to improve processes and the management of similar projects in the future.

There is a focus in Maersk Drilling on performing class maintenance and modification projects whilst in operation rather than during a yard stay to reduce time in the yard and project spend. The Head of TO Projects will manage multiple Programme Managers who in turn will oversee projects that fall into the same category so as to ensure economies and best-practice.

The Head of TO Projects will also work closely with Asset Managers, Operations Managers and other parts of Maersk Drilling to ensure all stakeholders, both internal and external, are working together.
