Senior Project Manager - Manufacturing/Engineering site build

Our renowned and world leading Engineering client is currently looking to make a key hire in the form of a Senior Project Manager. The Senior Project Manager will play a lead role in the planning, design, implementation and build of a new manufacturing/Engineering site for the client in East Asia.

The Senior Project Manager will be well supported by a competent build and project team in the UK and also adequate resources already present in the East Asian country where the site will be constructed. This is a long term project and whilst there will be some infrequent travel abroad the majority of the delivery will be done remotely or out of the clients UK office depending upon the preference of the candidate.

Due to the niche nature of this role and the skills/experience required we hope that candidates will appreciate that they must meet certain criteria in order to be considered for the position.

The successful Senior Project Manager must have the following skills/experience:

  • Proven, sustained and demonstrable experience of delivering projects that involve the end to end build of a manufacturing/Engineering site or plant
  • Experience overseeing the build of Clean-room's (engineered space, which maintains a very low concentration of airborne particulates) within the above mentioned site's
  • Experience delivering projects with budgets of c. £15m
  • Exceptional third party and vendor management skills along with strong negotiation skills
  • Ideally experience of managing a large, complex project team dispersed over multiple geographical areas and countries abroad.
  • Ideally experience of delivering projects that focus on the build of a new engineering/manufacturing site for a UK based client in another country.
  • Any experience of delivering physical build projects across Asia would be hugely beneficial although not essential.

This will be a long term project with exceptional opportunities for similar projects to be delivered within the same country over the next 10-20 years. The client is one of the most employee centred, collaborative and forward thinking employers we have worked with and offer an excellent benefits package alongside a fantastic culture.
