Cost Controller Jobs

How to Enter

To successfully secure a job as a Cost Controller in New Zealand’s Oil & Gas industry, candidates should have a sound grasp of numbers and be able to budget and forecast expenses. To that end, employers often look for professionals who gold a relevant trade qualification and experience in Quantity Surveying or a relatable field, such as Accounting.

 

Typical Responsibilities

The typical responsibilities of a Cost Controller can include any of the following:

  • Forecasting project costs by identifying what resources is needed to complete it in an efficient way, i.e. labour, equipment and services
  • Actively reporting the costs of budgets to ensure projects do not overspend
  • Supporting and working with Management and Project Teams to ensure project costs are kept within budget
  • Ensuring the business, as a whole, does not spend outside of its means
  • Managing and training other professionals, such as Accountants or Cost Controllers

 

Progression

Where Cost Controllers can take their careers next can largely depend on their background and preference. If they have a trade background, then they could choose to work more closely on the budgeting and reporting of individual projects by becoming a specialist Cost Engineer. Alternatively, if they wanted more management and strategy in their role, then they could work towards becoming a Cost or Finance Manager.
