Job Description

Job Title:Product Manager
Location:Oldham
Salary:£50k - £65k (dependent upon experience) plus great benefits

The Opportunity
We have a multifaceted product management role with great training and support networks in a world leading company at the cutting edge of technical innovation within the aerospace industry.

Now I've caught your attention…that's really what the job is, would you like it?

The Role
In your new role as Product Manager you'll oversee the delivery of custom composite kits into our aerospace clients, taking responsibility of the project from initial consultation through to sign off. Supporting you is a small, multi-disciplined product management team who will assist you with the office-based duties such as reverse engineering specifications and developing CAD drawings from this, estimating costs and writing up manufacturing instructions.

As Product Manager you'll also get a lot of opportunity to visit customers at their sites across the UK and internationally. As our composite materials expert you'll collaborate with our technical sales team and directly with our clientele to ensure that we can deliver what we promise and at the highest quality level possible. We work with some of the largest aerospace and automotive companies in the world who rely on our products and your knowledge to keep at the top of their game.

Owing to the Product Manager position being so customer-facing you'll be at the forefront of our new product development and production activities forecasting, working as part of our global custom engineering team. This is a strategic role which determines where we position ourselves in the market moving forwards.

The Candidate
If you have product management experience in the aerospace industry we'd love to hear from you.

This is a very technical position with a highly specialised client base so, to be able to hit the ground running, you will need to have demonstrable experience overseeing a product's journey from conception through to manufacture. Owing to the market knowledge required we are looking for someone with a background in either the aerospace or composites industry.

Your new Product Manager role will involve a lot of client meetings and so significant customer facing experience, plus the associated communication and negotiation skills, is going to be a substantial advantage for any candidate applying for the position.
Additionally the role will include the management and development of a bright and energetic team with a lot of potential. To ensure we continue to offer them an interesting and engaging opportunity you will need to be able to oversee their growth within the organisation.

The Company
We're a world-leading manufacturer supplying directly into high-specification, top-end engineering companies around the globe. Our products are used in the latest aerospace prototypes, F1 cars and renewable energy solutions so precision and product quality are at the forefront of our vision.

We're going through a large, planned expansion phase in the UK at present and as our new Product Manager you'll be integral to driving the company forward. In return we believe in providing a collaborative, supportive environment so you'll be given lots of training and development opportunities from day one.

It's important to us that our staff enjoy coming to work here and that they reap the benefits of our commitment to care and quality. We consider ourselves technical partner to our customers, not just a supplier and as such you will be seen as a global product expert.

If you'd like to join our team click "apply" now.

Company car
Discretionary bonus
