This is a great opportunity for somebody with a strong track record of managing projects in an engineering sector (not necessarily in the aerospace & Defence sector, although this is of course desirable). This world-leading engineering company's projects have thankfully been largely unaffected by COVID-19 and as a result, they are actively recruiting for more skilled project managers to join them and help ensure the successful delivery of their exciting range of projects across both here in the UK and those with overseas applications too.

  • Implementing effective project management processes, tools and reporting mechanisms
  • Managing and control contract estimate-at-completion, revenue and margin in line with budget
  • Ensuring robust workload forecasts are maintained
  • Planning and facilitate active risk management across the project, including mitigation activities
  • Ensuring all Export Regulations are understood, adhered to and compliant

What would I get for my efforts?

  • Flexible & Home working opportunities
  • Paid overtime (subject to level)
  • Opportunities for career progression
  • A fantastic bonus scheme
  • Comprehensive pension scheme
  • Annual salary review
  • Fantastic working environment and site facilities
  • Social, charitable and sporting activities.

What skills are you looking for in me?

  • Project management experience
  • Strong risk management skills and knowledge
  • Ability to manage effective stakeholder relationships
  • Engage, share best practice and identify opportunities for innovation
  • Sound business judgement and appreciation of complex problems
