Job Description

Job Title:Engineering Design Manager
Location:Radlett, Herts
Salary: £35k - £40k plus benefits

The Opportunity
We're an industry-changing engineering company who are making a name for ourselves helping some of the world's biggest household names grow. Owing to our expansion we're looking for an Engineering Design Manager to develop POS products for them.

You already see our products all over the place so if you'd like to be able to walk down the street and take pride in saying to your partner/parent/dog "I made that" we have the job for you.

All we ask in return is that you can bring fresh ideas, a desire to keep learning and a background in engineering product design.

The Role
As our new Engineering Design Manager you'll oversee the design and development of products for our European business unit. These are bespoke works for global clients who rely on us to provide innovative and consistent solutions to their POS requirements that can be transported and installed throughout the world.

You'll be on board from concept, through manufacture to delivery. In this Engineering Design Manager role you can be sat in Radlett designing a product one week, watching it being manufactured in China the next and getting a call from a pleased client the week after as it's being put into stores around the globe - that's a lot of job satisfaction for one role.

You'll manage a small team that, we admit, is a work in progress. We have the talent in place we just need someone who is able to manage ongoing projects, schedule and assign works as efficiently as possible and get the department running up to its potential.

We pride ourselves on our desire to continually improve and as Engineering Design Manager you'll play a big part in this. We value your input on commercial and technical problem solving; from cost reduction to improved quality, project management to client interactions we want to hear your ideas.

The Engineering Design Manager role will involve an element of travel. We will occasionally need your expertise to discuss technical requirements with our clients and we do like to keep you in touch with the overall process so trips to the China manufacturing sites and European HQs of your accounts happen a couple of times a year.

The Candidate
If you're experienced in product development and design we'd love to hear from you!
To be able to hit the ground running you will need a degree in a relevant discipline such as engineering or product development and be a whizz on SolidWorks.

We have found people from a shop fitting or exhibition stand design background do really well with us as there's a lot of crossover but if that's not where you're experience lies don't worry we will train you up.
Wherever your skill set comes from you will need to know your way around production processes and our core materials: metal, plastics and print.

The Engineering Design Manager will be responsible for a small team so we'd like to hear about any experience you can bring to the table of supervising or mentoring colleagues.

As there is an element of travel in this role you will need a full, clean UK driving licence.

The Company
Our mission is to revolutionise our industry through the application of innovation and technology to the POS demand chain. This means we use cutting edge processes and equipment throughout our projects and expect our teams to be constantly striving to improve.
This isn't just at a company level though. We're currently helping a number of staff through external training to continue their own professional development and are always happy to cross train internally.

"I've been here for the past 3.5 years and what's really impressed me about the company is the level of autonomy you're given from the start. Our MD is very approachable and encourages a collaborative approach which means everyone takes real pride in how well the company's doing."

It's not all hard work though, we are a close knit team and like to make everyone feel like they're making a contribution from day one.

"I joined the company at the beginning of this month. I have to say that I was instantly made to feel welcome and part of the team. I was invited to the Christmas party before I joined which was a lovely introduction to the company and all the staff. Everyone is very friendly, helpful and make new starters feel very at home."

We've grown rapidly in the past few years and that is set to continue.
If you want to be part of that click "apply" now!

The Package
£35k - £40k basic salary (dependent upon experience)
Discretionary bonus
Excellent opportunities for external training and professional development
22 days holiday plus bank holidays
High spec laptop and smartphone
