Aker BP søker «Logistics Improvement and Performance Professional»

High impact role for a professional with strong analytical and/or project management skills

The Aker BP Logistics and Operational Support Department fulfils two key roles enabling Aker BP in creating the leading independent E&P offshore company: We provide supply base services and aviation-, vessel- and cargo transport services to all assets and business units within Aker BP. We also secure operational discipline, drive risk awareness and quality control in our aviation and marine operations, through our teams of functional experts.

Aker BP Logistics and Operational Support has a clear ambition: to be the front runner in our industry on digitalization, securing flow efficient and just-in-time logistics. Supply chains are transforming across several sectors, and the improvement potential for the Oil & Gas industry is vast. Therefore, the Logistics Improvement & Performance (I&P) team are looking for candidates who challenge traditional ways of working, adopt new technologies and build innovative solutions that drives business excellence.

The I&P-team contributes directly to the acceleration of improvement and digitalisation initiatives, through the use of improvement science methods, and a “Plan-Do-Study-Act” approach. The I&P team also delivers value to operated licenses, alliances and business units by facilitating cost leading buyer behavior: provision of key logistics performance data, business case analyses and insight that continuously improves the way we run our business. Aker BP is in the driving seat of the ongoing collaboration with other NCS operators to deliver a digital platform for the standardisation and cooperation in supply chain and transport services. This collaboration has provided the basis for our ongoing effort to develop a self-orchestrating digital platform and data driven supply chain and logistics. Naturally, the logistics I&P team contributes to the solution development.

Specifically, the I&P professional will provide performance analyses and support logistics improvement and digitalisation initiatives within the Logistics and Operational Support department, as well as relevant initiatives within all operated assets in Aker BP, to our Business Units and to our cross-industry Alliances. The role builds on analytical insight, an understanding of logistics processes, sound project management skills and a strong interest in the use of digital technology. The role involves significant amounts of cross-functional collaboration across the Aker BP business. Due to the high visibility within the organization on high impact initiatives, the role therefore requires good communication skills that contributes to the Aker BP “One-Team” way of working.

With our agile and engaged organization, management and owners we believe we are uniquely positioned to succeed with digitalization and transforming the way we do logistics. But we are far from having all the answers – and this is why we need you!
