I'm looking for someone to head up a new NPI Engineering department in a product development / manufacturing company based just outside Cambridge.

This well-established company have been around for 40 years and offer a friendly, family-feel culture in a village location with plenty of free parking and easy access by road and rail.

Their markets range across security, aerospace, military and industrial, with some extremely interesting, hi-tech products.

The Role:

  • Create and develop a new, dedicated NPI department
  • Design and introduce production equipment to make and test new products
  • Troubleshoot ongoing problems in production, requesting design changes to maintain and enhance production throughput
  • Take part in recruiting technical people in each of the engineering disciplines and forming a coherent department to act as an interface between R&D (product design) and production.
  • Involvement in early product design decisions
  • Ongoing support to maintain smooth production
  • There is anticipated to be a considerable need (and scope) for developing the responsibilities, culture, and organisation

About You:

  • Ideally Degree qualified
  • At least 5 years' experience in an engineering environment
  • Technical engineering background in any of mechanical, electronic or software engineering
  • Demonstrable, sound understanding of electro-mechanical technologies involved
  • Capacity to manage and motivate a team
  • Superb communication skills

There's a great salary and awesome benefits associated with this role. They're a super-friendly bunch and it's an incredibly interesting and secure industry to work in; they've just grown and grown, despite the pandemic! If you tick all, or most of the boxes so far, click 'Apply' and we'd be delighted to have a chat with you and explain more about the company and the amazing work they do.
