About The Role
Technology Programme Manager – NCC Connect
£47,700 - £59,733 DOE & Benefits
 
Since the launch of NCC Connect a few years ago, we’ve brought engineering innovation to the SME community, supporting a wide variety of small business with rapid-response R&D solutions. Now with the continued push toward all things Digital, and thanks to a recent internal promotion, we’re growing our team.
 
We’re looking for a Programme Manager to take ownership of a portfolio of varied projects which land into our Connect business. You’ll work with a diverse customer base to provide novel and off-the-shelf digital solutions, focused on improving efficiencies through the deployment of emerging technologies. Connect is all about SME and start-up engagement, and rapid-response solution. This is varied, innovative R&D work where no two days are the same.
 
You’re a strong engineering Programme Manager, with proven experience of managing complex work packages from start to finish. You’ll work with key stakeholders to develop a projects plans and liaise with our engineering resource to deliver tailored solutions.
 
So what are we looking for?
  • Proven Programme Management experience – for us this means delivering engineering work packages, so while experience in a formal ‘PM’ role would be advantageous, it’s not essential if you have equivalent knowledge and skills 
  • Self-starter – you know what this means, you’re a self-motivating individual, always keen to get stuck in and get stuff done
  • SMEs - you can get into the mind of an SME or start-up customer, with an intuition of how to meet their needs 
  • Digital experience – this would be a big bonus. If you have some grasp of digital concepts and how they will support the future of manufacturing we’d love to hear from you, from Data Analysis to Virtual/Augmented Reality, from Machine Learning to Visualisation
 
In return you’ll join a world-leading R&D centre, delivering the future of engineering to industry. We’re a collaborative and friendly bunch, with a key focus on personal development, making this a great step in your career.
 
What is NCC Connect?
We’re an open access centre, meaning we’ll work with anyone to provide composite manufacturing solutions. Connect is all about focusing on smaller businesses, providing a level playing field to the start-up and SME community regardless of turnover, sector, or maturity of their product or solutions. In this way we can truly live out our vision of being a world-leading centre for innovation, open to all. 

We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
