Automation sector continues to grow: Project manager sought by material handling experts.
A specialist in the design and installation of equipment needs to employ an additional Project Manager. This is part of a general trend of growth in the automation sector.
As the project manager you will be finalising designs and overseeing projects.
Each project engineer picks up the reins on each new order shortly before the quotation is sent out. This is to make sure that pricing is sensible, and each project can be completed as promised. Once the sales have been made the project engineer comes into their own. Coordinating everything: design of the often-bespoke equipment; specific customer needs and requests; build and development of the kit; supplier and subcontractor management, and finally installation and commissioning of the equipment. Each project runs between 20 to 40 weeks.
Succeeding in the automation sector: What makes a good project engineer?
The main criteria for success in this job is delivery. My client is a brilliant SME, who have established reputation as experts in getting jobs done quickly and at a good price. The project engineer is a huge part of this. They are the results, the “pay off”, the fulfilment of a dream.
Automation combines the elements of engineering to make a huge impact on the real world. Without the electronic sensors and feedback to make decisions automation is relegated to being fancy tables. Without effective mechanical structures the information from sensors is reduced to general interest. Once mechanical and electronic knowledge is in balance, the kit needs to be installed safely and efficiently.
The best automation engineers can appreciate the technical areas of their work. They also must have expert problem solving skills. The job is simple until something goes wrong. Finally, you must be able to communicate well with others.
This role is a key one from the organisation. As a significant engineer in the projects and delivery team you will be part of the phase of growth within the business.
