LONDON & DONCASTER
"You will have ultimate responsibility for ensuring £100m worth of post-production variations and modifications are completed to customer satisfaction prior to vehicle acceptance"
This is an exciting opportunity to work for a Global Engineering and Technology business with a UK operation employing around 600 people covering existing and "start-up" operations across eight locations including North West London.
The company have secured a number of high profile orders with full lifecycle maintenance contracts to manufacture and maintain rolling stock assets and as a result will look to increase their headcount to 2000 by 2020, to meet the demands of these contracts.
Their next key hire is You! A dedicated and highly skilled Project Manager able to successfully introduce their latest high speed fleet in 2017 and beyond.
Are you ready for the challenge?
ABOUT THE JOB
Your role as Project Manager will see you manage all activities relating to the implementation and delivery of variations and modifications on a fleet of high speed trains to the customers exacting requirements. Variations extend to on-board software projects, interior & exterior re-branding to converting some of the fleet from electric to bi-mode trains. In all, the project extends to 122 high speed trains with a project value in excess of £100m. In addition you will have management responsibility for all aspects of project governance and controls, including monitoring, control and reporting of performance against project plans, budget and contractual deliverables. You will have the support of a world class team to help get the project delivered to the highest of standards-still interested?
THE IDEAL CANDIDATE
This role will suit you if you like autonomy and thrive under pressure, certainly not a role for the feint hearted. You need to be someone who can come in and in effect "be given the keys to the car and get going!" You will need a high degree of flexibility as the role will initially start in London and will later see you spend more time in Doncaster, so the client is open minded as to where you live, as long as you can be flexible! You'll also need to put your excellent communication to good use as you will interact with a wide range of people from different parts of the business, including the customer to get the job done well.
You are the Project Manager I am looking for if you have experience working on high value rolling stock contracts with demonstrable experience seeing projects through the entire project lifecycle all backed up by an engineering degree.
£75K max + Pension + Healthcare + 25 Days Holiday + BH
