Electronics Director (24962)

to £85k DoE + excellent benefits

Specialist in high volume / mass produced electronics

While strictly not a director appointment, this role would suit someone with that level of authority in convincing clients on approaches for high-volume electronics manufacturing whilst maintaining high quality. The product areas this consultancy is focused on include science-led innovation, sensors, applied science and electro-mechanical designs.

This company employs the brightest engineers, so you will have a 1st or 2.1 in a technical degree to be able to keep up with the team. Earlier in your career you will have been a hands-on electronics engineer, since then your commercial experience will provide the evidence you possess the following attributes:

  • A strong high-volume electronics manufacturing and product quality background
  • Confidence in providing advice to senior leaders on how best to get products that are both high quality and highly innovative to market
  • Able to provide leadership at all stages of new product development from initial product strategy, though generating novel ideas, to manufacturing ramp-up
  • Provide early insight into the manufacturing implications of novel processes
  • Able to contribute to non electronic aspects of high volume product manufacture
  • Ability to improve manufacturability and reduce cost
  • Knowledge of FMEA, risk identification, statistical modelling and predicting product life
  • Experience of defining the testing / verification strategy for high volume electronics
  • Effective use of process improvement methods (e.g. Lean Six Sigma)
  • Experience with compliance, certification, and safety testing

This is a superb opportunity to play a key leadership role within a successful high-tech consultancy.
