Project Manager

Aerospace & Defence contracts

The Company is a market leader in the design, manufacture and supply of rugged portable and industrial embedded computing, custom lithium battery packs, secure communication systems and antennas. Their focus is on providing highly reliable technology for use in harsh environments, where failure is not an option.

Custom engineering is at the heart of their business. As a result, dedicated in-house teams support clients by designing, manufacturing and testing the most advanced range of products and systems tailored to their specific application requirements.

Currently the Projects Team handles projects from award through to completion, although the Project Managers do get involved at tender stage working alongside the Business Development team.

Projects are typically for the MoD or prime defence contractors, such as BAE Systems and Thales, and will be part of a larger contract. Typical project lifecycles are 6-24 months.

The Project Manager will be responsible for the lifecycle of the project, undertaking project planning, scheduling and coordination, working with internal departments – Engineering, Purchasing, Quality, Production, Finance – as well as liaison with customers and external stakeholders.

Due to consistent growth in orders and projects they are seeking to increase the team by recruiting an experienced Project Manager.

The candidate must be a fluent English speaking UK citizen, with Security Clearance (or be able to gain Security Clearance).
