We are looking for an experienced Project or Programme Manager to join our team.

We provide a dynamic environment, to lead technical teams through the full product lifecycle, innovating on a variety of technologies applied to different market sectors.

The group works across the entire wireless landscape - from high volume consumer applications such as portable internet-based devices, through to professional high-performance systems including the air traffic control radios used to govern US airspace. This breadth of wireless activity provides tremendous variety to our team members. 

What we can offer

In this role you will be Programme Managing challenging and often complex product development projects, typically consisting of multidisciplinary teams (including software, digital signal processing, RF, hardware, mechanics and production engineering). They cover a wide range of market sectors, and you will work closely with clients and technical colleagues to see projects through from definition to conclusion.

The Programme Manager role offers a high level of diversity and interest and includes working closely with other seniors within the Wireless and Digital Services Division to develop relationships with prospective clients and identify new business opportunities. Where you will ultimately support the sales process, by working with a small group of seniors to define a programme of work which solves a specific client need, for an agreed budget in an agreed time.

You will have the opportunity to lead projects of varying sizes, with a typical value of up to £10m. On top of leading your teams through the development lifecycle, from requirements definition through to final delivery. Your specific responsibilities will be to track progress, monitor spend, keep the client informed of progress and ensure that risks and issues are managed along the way. 

What you can bring

You will ideally have a good degree in Engineering or Science, and have substantial experience managing projects covering the full product development lifecycle. 

You will understand the product development process and have the ability to lead teams of intelligent and technically capable engineers on complex, multi-disciplinary projects. To do so will require excellent communication and presentation skills.

Strong financial control – both in estimating costs, and in tracking spend against plan is also important.

It would also be great if you had any of the below, but it’s not essential:

  • Direct client facing experience, especially during early definition phases
  • Awareness of Project Management best practices (e.g. APM)
  • Experience in managing projects involving both software and hardware
  • Experience in managing products into manufacture
  • Working knowledge and experience of the wireless regulatory and type approval environment
