Senior Engineering Manager (600518)
Salary range:
£57,696 - £64,914
FTE: 1
Term: Open-ended
Closing Date: 07 April 2024

We are seeking to appoint a Senior Engineering Manager to provide technical leadership at our new ‘Whole Energy’ (electrical, thermal, gas and transportation) research facility at Inchinnan and support our existing technical team at our research and test facility in Cumbernauld. Preferably a chartered engineer with Senior Authorised Person (SAP) experience, this position will interest someone with an engineering background; ideally from a petrochemical or process manufacturing industry, or perhaps a DNO (distribution network operator).

The successful candidate will be a member of the PNDC senior management team, influencing key decisions of the organisation in the context of the evolution and operation of the centre’s test and demonstration facilities. This is an exciting role, overseeing technical operations and supporting the development and deployment of bespoke testing solutions for the latest emergent power network, thermal, gas and transport technologies.

You will have primary responsibility for the management and safe operation of the electrical distribution and energy systems test infrastructure at our new facility in Inchinnan, whilst providing technical leadership and support to our Cumbernauld facility. Reporting to the Operations Director, you will ensure the quality and efficient operation at both facilities, holding responsibility for the safe operation and maintenance of the centre’s testing capabilities.

You will have a solid background in LV/HV networks, having been a Senior Authorised Person (SAP) in a previous role. In the role, you will lead upgrades and maintenance activities for all centre infrastructure, plant and equipment, designing and implementing policy and procedures relevant to the safe deployment, operation & maintenance of the testing facilities.

You will manage a team of electrical engineers who work closely with PNDC’s innovation engineers and industry clients to provide demonstration and testing services of innovative technologies. You will grow the Inchinnan facility team, spanning beyond electrical engineering to include mechanical and other engineering disciplines, initially contracting in this resource until such time it is commercially beneficial to recruit and build capability within that team.

We are looking for a person who thrives on solving technical challenges, who is a self-starter and proactive in approach, and who has strong communication and interpersonal skills, with an ability to interact with a range of industrial partners, clients and colleagues.

Formal interviews for this post will be held on a date to be confirmed. Interviews may take place during the advertised period and this position may be closed early if a suitable candidate is found.

So, if you’d like to join us as a Senior Engineering Manager, please apply via the button shown. This vacancy is being advertised by Webrecruit. The services advertised by Webrecruit are those of an Employment Agency.
