Job Description

Job Title:Product Support Engineer
Location:Kettering
Salary:£25k - £30k plus great benefits

The Opportunity
Are you interested in engineering? Enjoy customer interaction? Want to move into product marketing and management?

We have the Product Support Engineer role for you!

We're looking for a Product Support Engineer to work with internal teams, suppliers and customers to ensure we continue to provide the market with relevant, innovative products complete with precise technical documentation and delivered with top of the range customer care.

The Role
As our new Product Support Engineer you'll work with our sales, operations and laboratory teams to support the journey to market for our new and existing products.
Reporting into the Product Manager you'll develop relationships within the industry and with clients to keep ahead of market developments, assisting with prototype design based on customer requirements and produce specifications for the new product.

From there you'll manage the in-house project including drawing up all required documentation, managing the SAP product system so the components are tracked and coordinate the launch.

The Product Support Engineer role is really varied and interesting and we are looking to bring someone in and develop them so they can progress here. A number of our company are regarded as experts in the field and are consulted by national bodies and organisations, we'd be aiming for you to reach this status during your time with us.

This role will involve some UK and European travel.

The Candidate
If you have an engineering or design degree (or equivalent) and customer facing experience we'd like to hear from you!

This role does have a strong product design element so you would need experience working with AutoCAD and Solidworks plus a degree in a relevant subject such as engineering or design. If you have a strong working knowledge of SAP and MS Excel that would be seen as a big advantage.

This role will be involved liaising with a lot of different parties so you'll need to enjoy working in a social environment where communication skills are key.
We also like really curious people, if you're the sort of person who gets hands-on to take machinery apart just to find out how it works you're going to fit in well. We may be the commercial arm of the business but the majority of the product management team are Engineers at heart who get to satisfy their natural curiosity at work.

The Company
We are the UK market leader in our sector. That sounds impressive but what it really means for you is that you're working for the company with a great reputation with a large product range to keep you busy and the capacity to work on niche products to keep you interested.

We let you find your feet here, no one is expecting the finished article right away and we provide a lot of training to get you up to scratch.

The Package
£25k - £30k basic salary (dependent upon experience)
Discretionary bonus
Pension
Discounted BUPA
24 days plus 8 bank holidays
