Job Description

Our client is a business that is really going places! Having seen a significant amount of investment recently, there is a real need for someone to help them deliver innovative, yet practical, products that will take them to that next level.

As well as innovation and knowledge of the market, you will be adept at managing the factory side of NPD. You know how to get the Operations, Engineering and Technical teams on side and can sweet talk anyone in to giving you an hour on the lines to test an idea.

This is a senior role within the development function, reporting in to the General Manager of the group.

Being a multi-site role you will be comfortable in juggling many balls and learning the strengths and weaknesses of each site so that each is operating to full efficiency.

As well as being creative and market aware, you will need to have an ability to get the most out of existing kit. If you have evidence of having enabled a factory to make money through your new products in spite of the ageing machines then we would love to hear about it.

This business is going places but it still has a journey to make. If you love the idea of being in at the sort of something new and exciting then this is the role for you!

  • Innovative

  • Practical

  • Customer facing

  • Financially astute

  • and above all, possessing the character to get everyone on side

Does this sound like you? Then for goodness sake send in your CV - we need to speak with you!
