  • Making difficult decisions as and when required
  • Run Talent Assessment and participate in the pay review cycle

You will need to have:

  • Ability to lead, inspire and act in the best interest of both the individual and the company
  • Proven experience in managing (1:1's) and developing people (PDP's) in remote teams across multiple time zones within an engineering environment

A background working within Technical or Engineering sectors would be a big advantage for this role as you will need to understand technical terminology and will be engaging with Technical Leads, Project Managers and Engineering Managers on a regular basis.

So if you are passionate about your work, love to share, coach and understand the value of genuine interpersonal communication then this may be the role for you.
