Working closely with Engineering Leaders 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 projects to deliver on deadlines.

- 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, working with multi-disciplined teams to deliver on requirements. You will hold a good amount of experience working across an entire project lifecycle; from supporting with bids and propels, production delivery and through to in-service support. As each project will consist of mechanical, electrical and software SMEs, proven experience of working collaboratively within a multi-disciplined team is essential.
This is an amazing opportunity to join a market leader and have a real impact on their Engineering function.
