As this is a hands-on role you will be asked to manage the full lifecycle of IT design projects from concept to fully functional products or systems and will also include managing the on-going support of some delivered solutions to end of life. You may also partner with external suppliers and collaborate with them to produce solutions. This role will involve the coaching and direction of staff to support them in developing their engineering skills further; so that they can deal with the many technical challenges TRI will face in the future. You will be expected to take on some of the more complex aspects of an IT solution and then introduce the learning outcomes into the team.
