Group Functions

Under the current organization structure, each business line is responsible for providing and sourcing the optimal level of operational support that they require. With the majority of support now provided in the individual business lines, our group functions at the corporate level have been streamlined. The resulting lean corporate office has responsibility for strategy (through our Group Sector Managing Directors of Hydrocarbons, Minerals, Metals & Chemicals and Infrastructure) and improved capital allocation (through our new Development group), in addition to assurance and governance activities.


The Assurance team provide risk-based business assurance on the effectiveness and efficiency of the WorleyParsons internal controls, reliability of reporting and compliance with laws and regulations.

The team is responsible for ensuring that material risks are being managed. Areas of focus are:

  • Reporting to the Group Leadership Team and the Board
