Our success as a business has seen our engineering team size increase through continuous and sustained growth, and will expand further for the foreseeable future. In addition to our Tewkesbury offices, we are setting up a new office in Chippenham – an exciting time to be part of the company. We are looking for a Test Engineering Resource Manager to come on board and support the growth of the engineering department.
The Test Engineering Resource Manager will have responsibilities that cover three main aspects:
- People management duties for a team of engineers
- Continuous improvement in our engineering capability, focusing on increasing our overall competency levels and aligning with industry best practice
- Lead and / or support the development of test strategies, plans, test cases and test execution
From a functional aspect, Engineering Resource Managers support the Head of Engineering with the general operating rhythm of the department, and work in close partnership with other Engineering Resource Managers. They are responsible for resource planning, regular people reviews and ensuring process is followed through effective governance. From a technical leadership aspect, Engineering Resource Managers support Engineering Technical Managers to successfully deliver our engineering projects. They are responsible for planning, coordinating activities across multi-disciplinary teams, reviewing and approving engineering outputs.
As our work is multi-disciplinary, you will need a solid background in multi-disciplinary engineering and product development, with test automation and ideally software being your specialisms. You will need to have excellent organisation skills, a good awareness of project and risk management, and be comfortable in front of customers, senior managers, and end users alike.
To be considered for selection you will need a degree level qualification (or equivalent). You will need to be able to demonstrate experience in inspiring and leading others to deliver successful outcomes and show how you have overcome challenges whether these be technical, procedural or people related.
