Automatically killing long running jobs (unattended Robot)

My un-attended robot needs to run many jobs first thing in the morning. Most of these jobs take about 10 - 15 minutes, but based on system performance & amount of data on a given day they could run as long as 30 minuets each. I want to launch these jobs 1 minute apart so they run one right after another wasting no time. Orchestrator has the feature built in to kill a job after x minutes or hours, but this time seems to be measured from the jobs scheduled start time, not it’s actual start time. I can’t use this as if something delays the queue all delayed jobs get killed before they even start. Is there a way I can kill a job based on it’s actual execution start time rather than it’s planned start time?
