Project Manager (25597)

South Cambs
£45k - £65k DoE

Agile, Microsoft Project, Electronics, Embedded Software

Our client provides unique solutions for their customers by solving today’s hardest engineering problems in sensing, data collection & communications. Their customers span a wide range of markets including healthcare, internet of things, defence, security and automotive.

Due to growth they are looking to expand their team of experienced Project Managers.

Due to the project-driven nature of their business, you would play a pivotal role across the whole range of development activities undertaken. You will be highly customer-facing, working with the sales team to sell projects, and acting as principal client contact during project delivery. You will be managing diverse, highly skilled, multidisciplinary project teams. Depending on the size of the projects, you may be managing multiple projects at any one time.

You will provide time and cost estimates into the bidding process to satisfy requirements and then deliver the project to those budgets. You will identify and manage the risks in the project and be comfortable managing change.

You will be an excellent people-manager, with good emotional intelligence and able to get the best from a team of high performers. You will be comfortable communicating with clients at all levels, including senior executives, project managers, engineers and technologists.

You will be familiar with the common processes and tools of project management such as Agile, Work Breakdown Structures and Microsoft Project. You will be managing highly technical development projects and so will need a good technical degree or an equivalent qualification and typically have an engineering design background in electronic hardware or embedded software.

In return, as well as a competitive package, you will be offered the training and professional development that you need to progress your career.
