Field presence – the candidate must be in field for the first week of a project (large field projects) or first 2 days if a smaller project. The incumbent will travel a lot and be out of the office for at least 2-3 days every second week. The incumbent will track his field visits, indicate who he visited, what the impact was, the on-the-job training provided and how he ensured that quality will be improved. This includes national and international travel to the various regions and suppliers.

Field suppliers – continuously recruit, manage, and upskill existing / new suppliers. Identify, track, and retain suppliers and opportunities for growth.
