Context and Environment :
Adopting the proper scheme and strategy for implementing an EPSRS is a challenging issue as there is a permanent and prominent concern to maximise preparedness and minimise capital assets.
The job holder must therefore exert a sensible sense of judgment to recommend / validate solutions suited to the local environment and business constraints, without compromising on the major requirements of Integrity Management.
Working on successive building blocks, demonstrating localised benefits, working from simple to complex will be preferred strategies.
EPSRS Coordination is an overarching / transverse function, dealing with a rather important number of activities and disciplines having already
their own approaches and practices. Developing good collaborative spirit with all stakeholders, demonstrating clear long term vision and showing a
good degree of conviction are therefore essential to the success.
