Coordinate and monitor the development of the Contractors planned activities and provide progress reports to the Cluster Director and Engineering Director, highlighting performance to plan.
Working with the Directors, the Engineering Manager shall establish regular meetings with the Contractors and other NEOM external stakeholder as required for managing, coordinating, and assuring the design review and approval process.
