This challenging but rewarding role will combine innovative thinking with the ability to instil a vision across a department. The type of leader who thrives off creating new ways of thinking and overcoming problems, backed up with the conviction to then drive these ideas forward across the business. So maybe you are in a role where you have the ideas, but you want to remove the red tape and start to see a culture of change?
You will have at some point in your career been a design engineer working with complex cross functional products, but you will then have taken the step up into management. You will have a clear understanding of what makes a great product and will be able to communicate and inspire teams of cross functional engineers on a range of different projects.
A leader who will communicate with your team with a passion and energy across all areas of engineering not just a specific area of expertise. The type of mindset where you are excited for change whilst combining this creativity with proven engineering fundamentals.
The company are already a leading player within their niche sector and have achieved huge growth in a short space of time with an impressive array of low volume high value products. The potential for further expansion from a technology perspective is huge and this role will help them to evolve giving the team the clear structure and confidence that is needed to take things to the next level.
Working closely with the Head of Engineering you will work on several key areas of development which will help to improve the overall quality of products whilst putting in place clear milestones for all future development.
The role has the potential to be hugely rewarding as you will be able to clearly see your changes come to life. With change there is always some resistance so you will need to have the leadership ability and confidence to challenge any potential problems that could occur during the NPD process.
The business has a strong reputation for promoting from within so this role could lead to more senior positions within the business longer term. The team you would take charge of would be a mix of mechanical, systems, validation and NPD engineers with the potential to grow in the future.
For this role we are looking for…
A degree within an engineering or scientific related discipline.
A background of working as a design engineer who has then progressed into a more senior role. This could be a mechanical or electronics bias as long as you have a strong cross functional engineering understanding.
Drive, ambition, creativity and the conviction to turn ideas into reality across an engineering business!
