Are you an experienced leader within an engineering business? Have you lead complex, high-value projects? Would you like the chance to work across the entire life cycle of a project, from bids and proposals through to in-service support? Then this could be the role for you!

Morson International are currently recruiting for an Engineering Manager to work a market leading engineering company based in Dorset. This is a very senior role for the business and an exciting opportunity to head up the engineering function, managing and motivating teams as well as ensuring projects are delivered, compliant and to budget.

Working closely with Leaders and Managers you will ensure that all engineering work is following process, work packages are correctly in place and that there is sufficient resource within each of your teams to deliver on deadlines.

This is fast paced role, and one where you will be communicating with a variety of people; from Operatives on the shop floor through to Project Leads for progress updates and Business Leaders for supporting in bids and proposals - you certainly won't be bored here!

Ultimately, your role will be to successfully lead the Engineering function, and so the delivery of major projects and budgets will be in your hands.

As Engineering Manager, you will be;

  • Ensuring all projects have the appropriate level of Work Package Management applied, with regular review and reporting of progress against the Work Packages
  • Supporting the Project Engineering Leads in the delivery of their projects by ensuring all aspects of the delivery are being considered and that company processes are being followed
  • Ensuring there is a coherent strategy for the delivery of the various projects within the Business Stream
  • Reviewing the risks across individual projects and the wider business area and ensuring suitable mitigation strategies are in place
  • Supporting the Functional Leads and Project Engineering Leads in the allocation of appropriate resource, and for resolving resource conflicts within the Business Steam
  • Ensuring that the Forward Load across the Business Stream is up-to-date and accurate for the current projects and future opportunities
  • Early identification of project issues impacting compliance, schedule, milestones or costs, development of mitigation and/or recovery strategies and appropriate escalation to the Senior Management Team
  • Ensuring Internal Research and Development work within the Business Stream is properly resourced, planned and conducted.
  • Supporting the Project Engineering Leads in the development and delivery of design reviews
  • Working with the Business Lead to present the position of the projects at Cross-Functional and Exceptions Reviews
  • Supporting the Bid Manager and Capability Managers in the development and review of the cost books for future opportunities with the Business Stream
  • Providing mentoring to the Project Engineering Leads

To be successful in this role you will hold experience of leading and overseeing complex engineering projects having worked with a variety of stakeholders and senior management before. You will hold a good amount of experience working across an entire project life cycle; from supporting with bids and propels, production delivery and through to in-service support. Ideally, you will have good knowledge of the defence sector but what is most important is your ability to lead and deliver on high-value, complex projects.

This is an amazing opportunity to join a market leader and have a real impact on their Engineering function.
