  • Facilitate formal project closure and subsequent reviews, capturing lessons learned and implementing appropriate actions.
  • Evaluate and recommend/decide on technical options in alignment with Whitbread's technical strategies.
  • Operate within the established organizational governance framework, possibly under the oversight of a project/program management office.
  • Serve as the primary liaison between customer and supplier organizations, facilitating effective communication channels.
  • Occasional UK travel, including overnight stays, may be necessary to support site migrations and attend supplier meetings, with expenses reimbursed according to Company Policy.
