As we have shared on Tuesday 14 May, Corporate Shipbuilding will be moving to a project-based agile organisation structure, where we will group people with similar skills and expertise in particular specialisms (i.e. marine engineering) into what will be known as Chapters.

These Chapters will be a mix of our people that have traditionally sat in either our Technical, Site or Contract Management Departments. The four newly created Chapters will together create the Shipbuilding Resource Group which will supply resource to the various projects across Corporate Shipbuilding.

Job Descriptions (added 17 May)
Please find below a number of the job descriptions that have been created as part of our new ways of working and our move to a project-based agile structure. Please bear in mind when reading these job descriptions that they have been created to be purposefully more generic, they are conceptual and will evolve over time to support our agile ways of working. The intention will be for performance goals to be more prescriptive around key deliverables on a given project.

This is not an exhaustive list but rather a selection of job descriptions to help aide and support your understanding of the changes we are introducing. In the coming weeks, everyone with a change to their job title and job description will receive a formal communication.
