"The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry." Although as a Project Manager you probably should have seen it coming in advance!

Our client are a leader in manufacturing high value, low volume bespoke products for tooling companies in the Aerospace and Defence sectors. They are looking for a Senior Project Manager, coordinating projects up to £1 million in value, and with lead times of anything from 3 months to 3 years, understanding what you can deliver, when you can deliver and what potential pitfalls stand in your way is the key to success in this role.

The role reports directly into the MD, so no washed down messages, what you discuss the plan is, is what the plan is. You'll be managing a small project team, and continuously liaising with areas such as Fabrication, Machining and Assembly, along with both internal and external stakeholders, will be crucial to the success to the business. You cannot hide problems until they disappear in this role, the holes in the plan quickly become chasms, and what can be avoided early on can easily become a long term relationship issue.

Your day to day task includes:

  • Being accountable for all projects being worked on within the business, keeping them to agreed time and quality standards.
  • Communicating continuously with all areas of the business and customers to ensure smooth delivery of projects.
  • Managing high value, low volume, bespoke projects from bid, planning, purchasing, manufacturing, verification and shipping.
  • This would suit Project Managers who have come from a Tooling, Aerospace, Oil and Gas or Bespoke Machinery Background.

In return you'll receive a salary of circa £60k + Car Allowance and 23 days holidays + bank holidays.

So if you can make plans, and you're able to stick with them, get in touch today with Mark Dorey on mark.dorey@emp-sol.com
