Detail information about job Project Technical Lead Engineer – 2 Posts. Terms and conditions vacancy
AMRC with Boeing,Rolls-Royce Factory of the Future,Wallis Way,Catcliffe,Rotherham,S60 5TZ
The Machining Group is part of the AMRC with Boeing and focuses on the research, development and application of state of the art machining technologies (http://www.amrc.co.uk/capabilities/machining). The group has an excellent reputation for developing technology and integrating it into a shop floor environment to demonstrate financial benefit to partners. This ability to translate technological advances into bottom-line savings has led to a large growth in demand from its aerospace partners and a growing need for skilled engineers with an interest in manufacturing.
We have an exciting opportunity as a Project Technical Lead Engineer. If successful, you will be part of the Machining Group Applications team as an experienced Project Engineer that will provide leadership and guidance to other Project Engineers in the team and will focus on one of our core disciplines in either;
- Aerofoil machining,
- Structures machining and Landing Gear development / machining,
- Rotative components machining,
- Aerospace Casings machining,
- Concept and development Cutting Tool Technologies,
- Gears machining.
The successful candidate will hold a key leadership role within the project team, and work on a portfolio of projects of varying lengths in duration potentially across a range of groups. You will be supported by a team with expertise in the relevant fields of research and development. The projects will be broadly based on machining technology with a focus on research and applications in identified components. Key aspects of the role will include the development of machining processes to improve performance, the leadership of Engineers in the specific technical team area and communication of project outcomes to internal and external stakeholders. The provision of technical support in the Machining Applications Group will be the focussed responsibility of the role. The output of this project will reduce time and cost, and to deliver solutions to our customers to enable them to duplicate processes in house.
The successful candidate will report to the relevant Technical Fellow in the specialist area of work. In order to be considered for this role the candidate should have a proven track record of relevant research and application projects on a similar platform commodity.
You will investigate areas of research which can enhance productivity and quality of machining processes. Projects range in scale and duration, but will all focus on developing and demonstrating robust and world-leading methods of manufacture that will be taken from the AMRC’s Factory of the Future shop floor and embedded into an industry partner site. You will work with multiple partners, support the scoping of new work and deliver defined complex projects. The project you would work on would be managed by a project manager, with support and guidance by a relevant Technical Fellow. Through the interactions with AMRC partners you will help develop a vision of the needs and direction of your specific research area. It is desired that you will have a good honours degree and/ or a high standard of engineering experience, be able to manage your time effectively, assist Project Engineers to manage their time effectively and follow quality and project management procedures. The role will involve periodical travel for on-site investigations or meetings which will largely be domestically in the UK, but could also be international.
