WSP is currently initiating a search for an Asset Management Consultant with our Asset Management Business Advisory team in our Sacramento office to help deliver the California High Speed Rail program.

The Role and The Group – Advisory Services
Our US Advisory Services team is seeking a dynamic, self-motivated Asset Management Consultant to both support and drive the continued growth in our Asset Management Advisory practice as well as play an important role in the California High Speed Rail Asset Management Office. You will join an established team that is a leader in providing management consulting, finance, and business improvement services across the country and beyond.

The position will work full-time on the California High Speed Rail program within the Authority’s Asset Management Office in the role of Asset Management Analyst. The Asset Management Analyst reports directly to our Asset Management Office Lead and is responsible for working across the Authority team, consultants and contractors to establish a record of the constructed assets and data associated with the management of the assets.

The Asset Management Analyst is responsible for defining the asset information requirements and geospatial data requirements, developing the asset information capture process and capturing information on assets through construction, testing and operations phases. The individual will work with contractors to ensure data provided is accurate and is consistent with the AMO Asset Information Standards. The Asset Management Analyst will undertake audits to ensure data accuracy and manage the upload process to the AMO’s Enterprise Asset Management System – Maximo.

The AMO is often tasked with supporting the Authority on asset related data collection exercises, strategic planning related to the future stewardship of the CHSR fleet, facilities and infrastructure and other activities to support the Authority transition to future operational state. While the primary focus of the role is to support data capture and data management, it is expected that the Asset Management Analyst also contributes to the ongoing success of the AMO and overall program as required.

WSP is continuing to develop its AMO-as-a-service capability. This role therefore has further opportunities nationwide which will be discussed at interview.
